Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Sometimes getting people to shout out your cause to the masses requires nothing more than a cup of coffee. Facebook user Lex Cross came up with a creative idea to compel Starbucks baristas into declaring, "Black lives matter." His simple but brilliant idea was to merely write in his name as #BlackLivesMatter on his coffee cup. "So the barista has to shout it to a room full of people when they put my order on the bar," Cross wrote on his Facebook page.

Scenario...2019, after surrounding the starbucks, a well known gathering place of liberal

dissidents, a disguised officer of Trumpians of the Lord, goes to the counter and writes

on the proffered cup, "you're all under arrest". it can happen here

I used to hang at a bar that did team Trivia and the guy running it had a thick Irish accent. One group would name their team "me lucky charms" so that he would have to say it in his accent.

I feel that was a much more clever use of the same ruse.

Is Starbucks even a thing anymore? Seems that anyone can sell coffee, and the do not need a corporate logo to do so. I live in a city without a Starbucks and it did not diminish the quality of life one bit. Besides Green Bean has better, for about half the cost- but you would not believe where you have to go to get a cup.

Old news - the frat boys were doing this 5 years in every Starbucks in every college town.

Ama Negrow, --- Yu and Jayel Hillary ...were pretty funny the first time you heard it.

Not worth $5 to do it again...

Back in the day the underground school newspaper had a contributor named "Hugh G. Rection." More than a little forced, but it always cracks me up to think of it.

Red Ruffinsore and Norm Mouspenis are two of my personal faves just for the reaction of the Barista when they read it, much less say it out loud.

I don't patronize starbucks, but if I did, I would write down "Comrade Stalin."

I always feel bad for the Starbucks people. They're just there until their indie music career takes off. Then they get caught up in the War on Christmas and fighting police brutality.

Well, it is true they don't have many Starbucks in Russia so the odds of you seeing one in your city IS pretty slim.

I would love to see the Starbucks market research on Docnjo's county.

Wikileaks, where are you when we need you?

Once people start writing #BlackLivesMatter on a Happy Holidays cup, the confederates in this country are going to piss themselves.

Happy Holidays, everyone!

Starbucks is more liberal, so its customers actually work. I think you are confused with Dunkin Donuts.

Protester, struggling actress, and inmate are all occupations. But none of them constitute work. And for the re ord, the local Starbucks is Tea Party Headquarters.

#12 | Posted by snoofy, Grayson County Texas does not have a Starbucks as far as I know, and I have not seen one in Dallas ether, but there is one at DFW. We have two coffee joints downtown and the both do well.
