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?
