again with the coffee in the cardboard cup

Are people really going to get pissy again over a Starbucks coffee cup? They are, they really are.

Honestly! It’s a cup!

A single line connects the figures. A coffee farmer, a family, a barista, friends embracing. A mosaic of more than a hundred people drawn in one continuous stroke is featured on a new Starbucks green cup.

The new green cup is available exclusively in U.S. Starbucks stores starting today (November 1), for a limited time while supplies last.

“The green cup and the design represent the connections Starbucks has as a community with its partners (employees) and customers. During a divisive time in our country, Starbucks wanted to create a symbol of unity as a reminder of our shared values, and the need to be good to each other,” said Howard Schultz, chairman and ceo.

Can we not, at the very least agree that is so much discord and divisiveness right now? I mean, come on now! It’s green; which last time I checked is indeed a part of the traditional Christmas color scheme of red and green, silver and gold. It is also November 2 today and we have, thank goodness, 53 MORE DAYS until Christmas.

Relax, y’all! Have a latte and wait until November 10.
