Toddlers and Adults: Not So Different After All

Unless you’ve been living with your head in a holiday-safe hole for the last week, I’m guessing you’ve come across the latest round of totally ridiculous drama surrounding the red cups at Starbucks. If not, I’ll sum it up for you: Actual, real-live grown-up adults are complaining about the lack of holiday decorations on the seasonal cups at Starbucks, calling the move “A war on Christianity.” If you, like me,Β think these people should be treated like the spoiled toddlers they are imitating and put in time out for acting a fool, then you should check out my somewhat sweary response to them that was published by BLUNTMoms yesterday.

Because BLUNTMoms only accepts original, previously unpublished work, you have to follow the link here to see it. I know, clicking that one extra link is like,Β so hard, but you can do it. Did you do it? Yeah. I didn’t think so. Cheers!


  1. I think all this nonsense is crazy!!! I have better things to do than worry about what my Starbuck cup may or may not say.. People are nuts!! Says she as she takes a giant gulp from her red Starbucks latte πŸ˜‰


  2. So long as the coffee tastes the way it’s supposed to who the hell cares what color it is? Hell, serve it to me in a bedpan (so long as it’s never been used). These people need to find something more constructive to do with their time.


  3. I did! (Click the link…) Heh! It IS ridiculous to fuss over the cup. Some people just got too much time on their hands. All I’d care about is the peppermint mocha in it. Don’t bring religion into the equation. Madness.


  4. I think it’s hilarious. Your piece, I mean. The ‘war on Christianity’ is just insane. Because SINCE WHEN ARE SNOWFLAKES AND TINSEL CHRISTIAN? Or did Starbucks remove the crucifixes and nativity scenes that usually adorn their Christmas cups? Also, since when did a global capitalist corporation ever ‘not promote Christmas’? If only! Has nobody noticed that IT’S ONLY JUST NOVEMBER and they’re already hawking these red pagan cups?

    Jebus. I think I need a cuppa and a lie down.
