Starbucks Apologizes For Satanic Symbols In Lattes In Louisiana

satanic symbolsWhat is your morning coffee trying to tell you? The Huffington Post reports:

Louisiana schoolteacher Megan K. Pinion was “appalled” after recently being served two Starbucks drinks that were allegedly marked with Satanic symbols. Pinion posted a picture of the drinks on the coffee giant’s Facebook page on Sunday.

Pinion, who acknowledged she is Catholic, accompanied the photo with the following comments: “The star is almost okay because it is in your Starbucks logo, the 666, however, was quite offensive,” she wrote.

Starbucks has since apologized to Pinion. “We’re taking the complaint seriously and have sincerely apologized for her experience,” Tom Kuhn, a Starbucks spokesman, told The Huffington Post. “This obviously is not the type of experience we want to provide any of our customers, and is not representative of the customer service our partners provide to millions of customers every day.”

    She’s obviously lacking perceptual adaptation.

    That is the album cover of 2112 by Rush and 999 the number of her deity.

    The more fervently religious you are, the easier you are to offend.

    Little bit off topic here, but I notice that Disinfo is now featuring christian dating ads. Is there really a marketing person out there so clueless or so stupid that they think disinfonauts are going to sign up for christian dating? LOL

    The 10-year-old Guatemalan girl working 12-hour days on the coffee bean plantation also sincerely apologizes for this poor customer service experience.

    Those intolerant Roman Catholics, cut them off from their supply lamb’s blood, that ought to keep them getting so uppity. I have it on good authority that the Starbucks wage slave at first contemplated etching into the milk foam a scene of forced birth at a Catholic hospital, but showing the dead mother was a little too complicated so she went with Satanic symbols instead.

    Woulda been better if it had been foam art, not just syrup. I manage a cafe (non-Starbucks) and now I REALLY want some of our barristas to learn to make satanic latte art.

    That’s what I call a good laugh and a $3 tip right there.

  10. The imperfect destroy true devotion, because they seek sensible sweetness in prayer.

    If the damn story said where the cafe in question was I might go to a Starbuck’s by choice for the first time since ’92.
