|Wait until crazy|
Victoria Jackson gets
wind of this. She will
be back on Fox News
in a heartbeat!
Let's take it from the top. Starbucks name isn't even mentioned, so it's really only an assumption that we are talking about Starbuck's coffee. What I see are the words "We Proudly Serve" and then the picture of the pornographic mermaid. Right below that, it says "Visit our cafe." So, clearly the first half of this bookmark is secret code for what you can "really" get back in the cafe.
I think the bottom half might be even more disturbing. We have the logo again. Then we are told that this Christmas Blend coming from the mermaid is spicy and sweet. Okay. Under the mermaid's spread tail/legs is an ice skater with her face turned up like she's waiting for whatever's coming out of there. And, whatever you might think is coming out of the mermaid, the guy ice skater has a steaming hot cup of it. Ew. This is just not the wholesome holiday bookmark Barnes & Noble would have you believe it is.
I honestly cannot believe there has not been some conservative uprising over this or mention of it during the GOP debates. Really! No one is going to mention pornography being given out willy nilly, but it's important to focus on gay marriage as if it is an actual national emergency? I just do not understand people.
When I came up with my new game I know I had a second picture in mind. Now, for the life of me I can't remember what it was. I'm looking at the crap all over my desk and nothing is jumping out. Perplexing/alarming.
There is not a picture for this, but on November's Men's Health cover one of the headlines says "Gym-Free Abs" in big giant letters. Um, hello? Do I need an article for that? I already have gym-free abs and I didn't have to read a thing. Don't these magazines have editors/stupid-story checkers?
In VERY exciting other news - I got a package in the mail today. It was my purple rubber STFU bracelets!! I mentioned I thought it would be a cool idea (If You Are Easily Distrac...Wait, What?) and many of you whole-heartedly agreed. I tried to figure out how we could actually get away with wearing STFU bracelets since they are not necessarily appropriate for all occasions/venues. So, I went with the blind embossed STFU and on the other side I spelled out what it meant. "See That Fun Unicorn." I felt that really spoke to the rainbows and sunshine that we are over here. I hope you all actually want in on our private joke and want these bracelets. You know why I hope that? Because I have 200.
|You really would not believe|
the number of obscene
there were. WTF?!
So, if you would like a bracelet (or 2 or 3) send me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your name and address and I will send you one (or 2 or 3). And, in what is clearly an ironic twist given my previous 2 paragraphs, I am giving the bracelets away for free. Yes, free. They were pretty inexpensive and the stamp to send me money would cost more than the bracelet, so I am giving them rather than selling them to anyone who was as amused as I was and wants one (or 2 or 3 - I said I had 200, right).
