just for you, only today, for one hour....only if you know about it in time to get dressed and miss watching this . That's right, Starbucks is giving away a free cup of it's new brew...Pike Place Roast...venti, of course.

This is my friend Michelle.......
I would tell you that she is my good friend Michelle, except if that were true, she would have told me about the free coffee....I'm just saying.

I could have had one of these if you know who had told me about you know what.

This is Starbucks new old logo. It's the original. The one where the mermaid bares her breast and has a crotch.

America said, "just one minute, Mr. Starbucks. We are a family friendly bunch, please give us a more modest mermaid"...and Mr. Starbucks listened, and he covered her boobs.

Then this soccer mom said, "not so fast, Mr. Starbucks, please get rid of the crotch shot so we can hang out in your cafes using your wifi while our kids drink $2.00 cocoas".

And guess what? Mr. Starbucks went and did this! Yes, way!!
But guess what else? Sales started to wither, and people started drinking this coffee

So now, Starbucks is going fast forward backwards to the old logo, ....no more green. Which leaves me to wonder what they plan on doing with this?

What about those green aprons?

Well I have stopped going to Starbucks because I have to use all my Starbuck money to buy gas for my car so I can drive to work to make money to buy gas for my car.

Good job on the history of the Starbucks logo.

My sister keeps complaining that you don't read my nephew's blog and she's jealous so you should check him out sometime.


Have a good day! :)

I dont drink coffee (or anything else in the morning)...the only coffee I like is coffee ice cream, or a Starbucks frappucino, which My Honey says is like a Big Mac in a cup (I think it's more like a coffee shake.)
