Starbucks Red Cup Meets the Grinch Stole Christmas
Who knew a cardboard cup filled with mediocre coffee could give such a large audience firework-eye-shooting-anger? If you didn’t hear, there wasn’t enough tinsel on the debuted Starbucks red cup this year and people are up in arms about it. In fact, people are calling the cup a “symbol of a larger war on Christianity.” Um, yikes? Anyone heard of a chill pill? I have. And it looks a lot like a plate of pancakes and a nap. Donald Trump even weighed in. I highly suggest you jump into the #ItsJustACup conversation via Twitter. It’s high-larious.

Fish Gape > Duck Face
There’s something fishy in the air. And it’s because there’s a new selfie protocol in town (yes, I mildly dislike myself for writing that). But if your new iPhone6 is stocked full with Selfie Photos (here’s how to remove that feature, by the way) we all need to know how to look best by mocking our scaley counterparts. All you need to do is carefully part your mouth like a Cod. I’m ready to move on – are you? Selfies at 200 mph should do the trick.

Keep Saint Paul Boring: High Fashion Edition
I’m a Saint Paul native, so that little town is my favorite. That’s why I completely understand the new tee-shirt made completely out of love for the (sleepier little sister) of the Twin Cities. That’s right, it says “Keep Saint Paul Boring.” In attempt to make fun of the silly thick-headed people that think Saint Paul is actually a blah-town, Nick Hannula designed a special shirt. Oh, and they’re selling like hot cakes. Go ahead, buy your own(SotC Editor’s Note: We’re working on our own St. Easy t-shirts.)
