Apparently there's a brewing controversy over Starbucks using their original logo (pictured). Since they're obviously trying to get back to their roots by bringing back all their old stuff I really don't see what the big deal is. Yes, there are boobs. Does it really merit a 3,000-store boycott? I don't think so. We don't boycott museums and there boobs there too. I can see how some groups could be upset if the logo were explicit in some way--like the Starbucks mermaid banging a sailor while holding an iced venti vanilla latte in its hand...fin-thing but I seriously doubt mermaids are concerned with covering themselves so frankly this likely an accurate depiction of a mermaid and therefore not overtly sexual. With all of the real problems going on in the world today is taking issue with the enlarged mammary glands of a cartoon drawing of a mermaid really something to take up arms over?

I'm boycotting your blog because you used that image.

I just want to know what the deal is with her two mermaid tails. That's an anatomy lesson I haven't learned yet.

I noticed Starbucks went back to its roots after its breakfast line failed. They got too corporate, too complicated, and too P.C. It should be about the coffee quality, and that's that. Just make a damn fine cup of Joe and be done with it. It's not a muffin joint, it's about the coffee. And I'll take a tall dark roasted house coffee for all of you sports fans out there.
