It’s a scary time right now, guys. There’s a war brewing out there. No, I’m not talking about war in the Middle East, the war on drugs, or even the war on terror. Oh no, I’m talking about the war of coffee.

In what quite possibly being the biggest power move imaginable, Dunkin Donuts is capitalizing on this absurd #StarbucksRedCup controversy and has unveiled their decidedly more Christmas-y holiday cup. Genius marketing strategy? Maybe. Or maybe everyone needs to just chill the fuck out and worry about more important things than a cup.
I would just like to point out the absurdity of this situation. Overly PC people make monumental issues over nothing and raise a shitstorm because of their sensitivity, and then all of us sane people just kind of sit here and are like “WTF are they talking about.” Now, a small but vocal minority that are angry at overly PC people, in this case, Starbucks, are making an issue and raising a shitstorm about a cup. A fucking cup. What’s worse? Some idiots out there are praising DD for their ‘Christmas Cup,’ even though they still call it a ‘Holiday Cup’, just like Starbucks.
