That tradition being seasonal price gouging.


Yes, it's the fucking most fucking wonderful fucking time of the fucking year. The big stupid Christmas tree goes up today in ugly-ass Rockefeller Center, beckoning the hoi polloi horde who then inexpertly waddle over to Radio City Music Hall to take in the absolutely entrancing CHRISTMAS FUCKING SPECTACULAR. Meanwhile downtown, right outside my window, I get to experience the pure joy of another smart, seasonal Starbucks billboard that shows an activity that 99.9% of New Yorkers will not be experiencing this Winter—the .1% who do get a chance to sled in NYC will be doing it in a kinda grayish/brownish sludge (thanks ricpic). Enjoy your 5 buck cups of 'bucks bullshit, babbitts (Sinclair Lewis reference. look it up, consumerist sheep).

you know, having read all of your previous starbucks posts, all i can think about is a delicious, oversweetened holiday-themed latte. of course, this doesn't change the fact that the ads are ridiculous.

I just read your list of things you hate. It's funny. But why is 'Brunch' capitalized? Do you know someone named Brunch? Or is Brunch a place you hate? Brunch, Connecticut. Putrid Brunch, Connecticut. I hate you Brunch. Maybe it's a family name. I hate all the Brunches. Papa Brunch, Mama Brunch, and especially Stephen Brunch and the other Brunch brothers. They make me sick.

I guess I explained it myself. I see why you hate 'Brunch' so much, now.

Brunch is capitalized because it's Funny. To capitalize. Brunch.

As opposed to, say, "screenwriters" or "fake blondes."

Or "Starfucks."
