NOM can't even do a Starbucks boycott right

by Jeremy Hooper

As expected, NOM, just hours after being thoroughly smacked down at Starbucks' shareholders meeting, has launched its anti-gay boycott site:

But wait, doesn't NOM's imagery and overall campaign imply the active dumping of a Starbucks cup? Doesn't that tell people to first buy said cup before dumping? It kinda does, right? And quite frankly, I don't think Starbucks really cares what one does with the liquid once the purchase is made. The whole idea of dumping the bought good seems a little ill-conceived, if you ask me.

As for my plans? I'm gonna be dumping a whole lot of Starbucks into my gullet. Just in time for Ice Caramel Macchiato season, too! It'll be the most pleasurable counter-boycott since this season's Girl Scout cookie one!
