The big breaking news today was that Starbucks released a red cup with their green logo on it. So some guy is telling his thousands of Facebook followers to state their name is “Merry Christmas” so Starbucks HAS to write it on the cup? How petty and ignorant is that? He says "Starbucks hates Jesus!" Seriously? Do we not have more pressing things to worry about?

Starbucks REMOVED CHRISTMAS from their cups because they hate Jesus ... SO I PRANKED THEM ... and they HATE IT!!!! #shareUse #MERRYCHRISTMASSTARBUCKSFollow --> Joshua Feuerstein

I can't make this stuff up people!

First of all, if you wish me Happy Holidays I am not going to come unglued on you and scream back "Merry Christmas" into your face with my hot breath reeking of eggnog and fruit cake. I am going to look at you, smile with my rosy red cheeks and say Happy Holidays to you too. If you think Christmas lives in the decorations we begin seeing around this time of the year you need to go read your bible again.

This entire don't take Christ out of CHRISTmas is getting out of control. Now we have a bunch of over caffeinated Christian shouting extremists upset with Starbucks because they released a red cup? SERIOUSLY PEOPLE...don't you have better things to worry about?

I personally think it's a truly amazing marketing ploy. Here we are publishing all these red cups to social media screaming "How DARE they?" Like a red cup from an overpriced coffee cult is the entire meaning of the season. Now everyone will rush to Starbucks to prove they are not christian extremists and will be blocking Cache road even more in the coming weeks so they can get their plain red cup and show that they won't be bullied by anyone.

Do you recall Chic-Fil-A? How many people lined up at their restaurant when they disagreed with same sex marriage. I bet they laughed all the way to the bank.

Drink your overpriced coffee in your red holiday mug with the words Mary Christmas written in black permanent marker on the side by some under paid barista. I'm going to sit at home with my red solo cup filled with my wine of choice and sing Christmas carols at the top of my lungs.

Oh, I'm sorry, did that offend you?

Oh and here is last years' cup. Do you see "Merry Christmas" ANYWHERE on these cups? Oh, and when you order your overpriced double shot, low fat, cappuccino don't forget the hashtag #MerryChristmasStarbucks because, we all know....they hate Jesus!
