It’s a song about a cute little kitty on The Big Bang Theory, but it’s a bit more sinister when applied to the Daleks in Doctor Who. This mug from HX5Designs even has David Tennant’s Doctor wielding his trusty sonic screwdriver. It looks like he’s going to need it.

Because your Frappuccino isn’t sweet enough already, you’ll now be able to enjoy it through a cookie straw. Starbucks has just introduced the “rolled sweet wafer biscuit lined with rich chocolate ganache” at stores in the US and Canada. You can add one to your order for $.95.

Needless to say, this sort of thing won’t help Starbucks in its quest to be taken seriously in the coffee world. Maybe they should convert to a milkshake shop that just happens to sell coffee.

These mugs by Joel Cherrico of Cherrico Pottery were inspired by images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. From the product page:

  • Durable: Stoneware pottery is very hard and meant to last a lifetime.
  • Functional: 100% non-toxic and dishwasher safe.
  • Handcrafted: I make each pot from a lump of Stoneware clay on a pottery wheel.
  • Complex: Every mug is brushed with up to 5 different glaze colors.
  • Earthen: Raw iron, copper and cobalt are harvested from the earth & fired in a kiln to 2400 degrees F to seal colors with silica glaze for non-toxic, food-safe surfaces.
  • One of a Kind: Each firing results in glazes that I can never duplicate exactly.

He calls them Cosmic Mugs and there’s currently a waiting list so sign up now and get in line for your own space-inspired mug.

Etsy seller “LennyMud” is offering a handmade, 16 oz, dishwasher and microwave safe ceramic unicorn mug emblazoned with the promise “Today Will Be Awesome”.

While this will likely be true for those whose happy place is populated by unicorns and rainbows, the rest of us will probably end up referring to this thing as a dirty, stinking liar – especially after the coffee runs out.

Indeed, the inability of Starbucks baristas to spell their customers’ names correctly on cups has reached epidemic proportions. The problem is so out of control that the internet has taken notice with a number of sites devoted to collecting name fails.

Now Justin Hook has channeled those images into a new Starbucks name generator called “What’s My Starbucks Name?” that will give everyone an idea of what name your drink could be under next time you decide to grab a coffee. In my case, I’ll be listening for “Jazimin”.

The latest Frappuccino flavor will hit Starbucks on April 28th and will only be around for a limited time. The S’mores Frappuccino will feature marshmallow-infused whipped cream, milk chocolate sauce, and a blend of graham, coffee, milk and ice. It will be topped with more of that marshmallow whipped cream and some crumbled graham crackers.

Sounds delicious!

If you would like to try one, the best time to go would be between the hours of 3 and 5pm May 1st though May 10th during their Happy Hour promotion. All Frap flavors are half off during that time.
