AND

The Rolling Stones, who I'm not terribly fond of, will 'dig up' a few 'rare tracks' and release them at Starbuckeroos - the place where burnt coffee has become a trademark.

I am filled with disgust.

"...and if you walk to the end of the block, there sits a Starbucks. And directly across the street -- in the exact same building as that Starbucks -- there is... another Starbucks. There is a Starbucks across the street from a Starbucks! And ladies and gentlemen, THAT is the end of the universe." - Lewis Black
