In today’s biggest non-story, religious folks are FUCKING PISSED that Starbucks’ red cups this year don’t feature any Christmas iconography, even though a) they never really have and b) it’s a fucking coffee cup. One of the guys who helped made the story go viral is this gentleman, who “pranks” Starbucks by making them write “Merry Christmas” on his cups (as though you can call it a “prank” after you’ve given them your money). He also makes a point of carrying a gun into the store because… I have no fucking clue.
Starbucks REMOVED CHRISTMAS from their cups because they hate Jesus … SO I PRANKED THEM … and they HATE IT!!!! #shareUse #MERRYCHRISTMASSTARBUCKSFollow –> Joshua Feuerstein

People who want to bring guns into restaurants are a lot like the people who like to bring their dogs to restaurants. Both groups are vocal about their “cause,” relatively few people are actually qualified to own either accessory and honestly I don’t want either thing near me when I’m eating or drinking. The solution is simple: Any place that allows dogs should also be required to allow guns. In fact, you shouldn’t be able to enter an establishment with one if you don’t have the other. Even better, let’s just give the guns to the dogs – the problem will resolve itself. I see no flaw in this plan.
