    On that note I think I will go fire up the coffee make and make a few cups of reasonably inexpensive coffee.

    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Watch the movie "Crazy People" starring Dudley Moore. It's about "truth in advertising" and is a hoot.

    By the way Tim, nice photo, thanks for posting it.

    You can see that the door is not completely open so this looks either stated or just very unfortunate. But, you would think that someone would have anticipated this and moved the name further away from the logo to avoid something like this. Far from ideal.

    I like Starbucks, I worked for Starbucks, I even CC in Starbucks (Gee, and they say nothing) but that photo about broke ribs! You should forward that to the CEO and by next week all Starbuck delivery trucks will have door stops installed.

    atctimmy gets the post of the week award from me.

    Do you think the result was unintentional or someone's cleverness. Either way it is pretty funny!!

    As far as truth in advertising is concerned: I have long believed that advertising and marketing have absolutely nothing to do with the truth. It's just a ploy to get someone to buy your product.
