A Christian group based in San Diego found grounds for outrage over the new retro-style logo for Starbucks Coffee.
The Resistance says the new image "has a naked woman on it with her legs spread like a prostitute," Mark Dice, founder of the group, said in a news release. "Need I say more? It's extremely poor taste, and the company might as well call themselves Slutbucks."
Members of The Resistance--whose name sounds more heavy metal than Christian, but never-mind--believe in the Illuminati, and believe George W. Bush is part of it. They also argue that Jessica Simpson is a slut because she "dances like a stripper" and "kisses Willie Nelson" in her video for "The Dukes Of Hazard".
Okay, so maybe they've got a point on that one. I could never condone kissing Willie Nelson.
As for the Starbucks logo, it definitely does NOT make me hot. You'd think a mermaid, having to swim around all day, would be a bit more toned in the upper body. This particular fish chick looks downright flabby.
PS. I'm off to the nation's capital for the next couple of days. However, I will be taking the laptop and our hotel has free wifi. We'll see if I can get anything written. As always, any tips re Ottawa bookstores is welcome. We're right downtown this time, so I plan to do a top to bottom bookstore walkabout over the weekend.
