Free Coffee and Ice Cream Today

Starbucks Phase 2

That’s right, friends. Rather than deal with the divisive nature of American politics–and how lots of people will feel like they’ve won today, lots of other people will feel like they’ve lost, and most everybody on either side will, in fact, lose no matter what happens–let’s take a moment and find something positive to say about Election Tuesday.

Um. Er. Ah…


Starbucks is giving away free coffee to anybody who asks for it–since they can’t give it to you for voting because it’s a conspiracy against the caffeinated voting contingent in this country. And Ben and Jerry’s is giving away free scoops from 5pm to 8pm.

We have to hold onto the simple good things for as long as we can. Especially if they’ll melt if we don’t eat them fast enough.

    The Starbucks give away violates Election Law. As of this morning Starbucks is halting this promotion.

    It’s nice to know Starbucks is moving into PHASE 2. I’m slightly frightened.

    Rox: Yes, as stated, they extended the promotion so that all you had to do was ask–voting was not a prereq. The info on the link you provided confirms this–unless I’m missing something.
