That clip actually made me a little weepy.

Thirty eight percent returns? I should buy some Starbuck's stock. If that is result of a boycott, EVERYONE should be boycotted that way. It would turn the economy around.

Makes me wish I were a Starbucks customer . . . so I could quit buying there. I'm not a customer and never have been. They have nasty coffee, drinkable only when it is loaded with sugar and fat.

Sounds like "health food" in Pennsylvania.

I mean, CHEESE-STEAK, seriously? Can you load ANYMORE unhealthful components into a meal?
