April Fools Abound

Poor Steve got zapped twice: first by a long-shot hope of a pricing point for the Motorola MPx and then by Howard Stern not being on the airwaves, which may or may not have been a joke, give Howie’s FCC problems lately. To make matters worse, he got attacked by his Starbucks non-gripping lid and for this I have a huge amount of empathy. Whenever I get a vanilla latte, mocha latte, toffee nut latte, or a caramel macchiato, I have to nick one of those silly bag labels to cover the hole, to save me and my cars from a sticky mess. For some reason, these three drinks explode through the drinking hole in the lid, once they leave the store…

What’s worse is that Dunkin’ Donuts has taken the prise for Most Usable Coffee lid, and I don’t think anyone in Seattle is aware that they’ve been surpassed in this very important race.

A huge step in engineering:

Closed (and snug)

Opened (and pinned back)


And that’s all she wrote, kids. I’ve been meaning to write this up for a while, actually, when Dunkin’ got the lids last month, but I kept forgetting about it, until today… maybe The Siren out there can forward this to someone in purchasing?

And on topic, there’s a new frap coming to replace the Brownie Frap… had samples today: very very chocolatey = *w00t!*

  1. Actually 7-11 has very nice lids down here in Texas. I’ll have to see if I can snag some and document them for you.

    *shakes head* Is this is as far blogging has gotten us? =)
