Stephen Colbert and the Starbucks Shutdown

Our Long National Nightmare Is Over

On Wednesday, Feb. 27, the unthinkable happened. Starbucks closed its doors from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. (You know, the time that vampires and the like need their cups 'o joe.) Publicity stunt or no, it was reported in the news, written up in blogs, and spoofed by Stephen Colbert. Sadly, as a caffeine addict, I can relate, Stephen. Multiple bags of tea do not a cup of turbo-caffeinated coffee make.

Haha, just when I think it can't be funnier... there's a shower scene! I sometimes feel that way about my chai latte.
