Fandango’s Flashback Friday: Oh, Fer Cryin’ Out Loud…

November 11, 2015 was a Wednesday, and I posted this for One-Liner Wednesday. I can’t believe that One-Liner Wednesday has been around that long. This was before I started adding commercials onto my Wednesday posts, so here’s an Eyewitness Newsbrief with Fahey Flynn…

There is no reason to be mad about the Starbucks red cups except that IT’S NOT EVEN THANKSGIVING YET.

— Jenny Jaffe (@jennyjaffe) November 8, 2015

I guess, as a Christian, I’m supposed to be upset that Starbucks (in whom I own stock and which I patronize regularly) brought out this year’s Christmas cups and didn’t put anything on them that would indicate that they were, in fact, Christmas cups. But then, I’m a Catholic, and while I consider myself a Christian, there are those who don’t. Maybe that’s why I’m wondering what this current kerfluffle is all about. Either that, or maybe I’m just one of those people who considers what’s in my coffee cup far more important than what’s on it.

Can you imagine the uproar if they came out with a rainbow-colored cup? Yeesh…

    1. At the time, people were incensed. It actually started the year before, because that year they used a cup decorated with snowflakes and sleighs, which offended some because snowflakes and sleighs aren’t The Reason For The Season ™
