    Noted White Shoe Law Firm Happy To Represent $3.7 Billion Hedge Fund, Less Interested In Defending Alleged Crook With Overdrawn Bank Account

    Yesterday afternoon, federal prosecutors charged Fredrick Douglas Scott, the self-described “youngest African-American hedge fund founder in history,” with engaging “in a wire fraud conspiracy to steal hundreds of thousands of dollars from investors1,” which he used to buy Caramel Macchiatos, stay in hotels with views of the Holland Tunnel, and bail his friends out of […]

    AAPL Watch– Things Have Been Better

    The rumors that today Apple would introduce a redesigned iPod featuring no buttons, knobs or screens of any kind, instead employing newly-patented mind-reading technology for functionality; produce a force-field causing all Zune products within a 200-foot radius to immolate, rendering them as useful as they are in non-burned-to-a-crisp state; and come with videos personally damning […]

    Uncooperative Cows Force Starbucks to Raise Prices

    SBux will increase prices on coffee, frappuccinos, vanilla bullshit latte cappa things and other drinks by an average of 9 cents per cup* starting next week. Starbucks claims the move is necessary to help offset the “soaring costs” of milk and other commodities. Morningstar analyst John Owens said that “There will probably be some grumblings […]

    Starbucks – Venti Film Aspirations, Tall Results

    “Um…why is my Grande Mocha (with extra whip) asking me to spell ‘sardoodledom’?” pretty much sums up Starbucks’ first film promotion venture. Last year, Starbucks Entertainment (and here I thought Starbucks Entertainment is the laughter that ensues when the cashier asks for $5 in exchange for a cup of coffee) promoted the film “Akeelah and […]

    Tipping Coffee Girls

    We are allergic to the term “barista.” It sounds like some sort of Latin American revolutionary rather than a girl who has memorized the correct way to order a “double tall skim latte.” That said, we always tip the barista although we’re not sure why. We hardly tip anyone who isn’t providing whiskey across a […]

    Starbucks: Putting the Fee Back into Coffee

    Everytime you fool yourself into having a milkshake at Starbucks by calling it a ‘coffee-drink’ you starve some kid with flies on his face. At least, we think that’s the message of this faux-Starbucks advertisement.

    Then Again, Those Lines At Starbucks Are Pretty Damn Long

    We literally howled with laughter this morning when Starbucks said it had lost revenues because it was making so many of those sugar-coated cold drinks in the hot summer. But maybe we were too quick to judge. Look at the line for Starbucks outside of Barry Ritholtz’s office. Makes us love the little deli across […]

    You Say It Best When You Say Nothing At All

    CNBC keeps running a trailer for an interview with Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, where Schultz’s major soundbite is: If you want achieve your dreams, you have to dream big… Schultz did** a business book a few years ago called Pour Your Heart Into It, and wouldn’t be surprised if that soundbyte was a chapter heading.
