A Different Kind of Jolt


Posted by Picasa

In a surprise move,
coffee giant Starbucks has recalled 73,000 eight cup coffee brewers sold at its shops for use in homes and offices.

They said that the coffee makers, made in China (maybe sub-contracted to North Korea?), have defective wiring. They were sold for $100.

Yeah, right. How much coffee do they drink in China or North Korea, you think?

Could it be that someone finally added it up: Eight cups a day times 73,000 at $4 a cup… “Good grief, we could have been selling these guys Moca Loca Fattay Latte instead of letting them make their own! We’re losing billions of dollars!”

So if you return the melted-down coffee maker, they will give you … wait for it … a free pound of coffee!

“Now, what am I supposed to do with THAT?”
