Leave it to Japan to reimagine the Starbucks mermaid as a mech. She’s also wearing a tie for some reason. Like a Starbucks version of Newton Geiszler in Frappuccino Rim.

The shirt is available in two sizes from Rakuten (medium and large) for ¥1600/$14.20, and it comes in six different colors: sky blue, red, green, brown, navy and black.

Take a closer look below.

A friend of Redditor dmizz recently visited a Starbucks in Los Feliz, CA and was greeted by this guy. Apparently, Starbucks was the only place he could find the inspiration and caffeination to lay down that hot keyboard track.

It’s only a matter of time before Starbucks has to add conference rooms and apartments to its locations.

Arizona-based Starbucks employee Tony Aguilar and his co-workers recently concocted several Valentine’s Day-themed drinks which were handed out to customers as free samples, and became instant hits.

The offerings included “The Valentine Frappuccino” which includes strawberries and cream with raspberry pumps, vanilla bean and blackberry topped with whipped cream; “The Love Bean Frappuccino”, which consists of vanilla bean with raspberry pumps topped with raspberry-infused whipped cream and chocolate curls, and “The Java Berry Frappuccino” which is a Java chip Frappuccino with raspberry-infused whipped cream.

Even though these aren’t officially available on the Starbucks menu, a company spokesperson noted that customers can tailor their drink to match their own personal taste preferences.

Take a closer look at the drink recipes in the gallery below.

Then again, pretty much all names baffle Starbucks baristas. It’s also common knowledge that some baristas just like messing with you. But the struggler is realer for Siân David.

She currently lives in Bristol, England but her name, pronounced “Sh-ah-n”, is Welsh. It’s the equivalent of “Jane” and she notes that it isn’t unusual in the UK. However, it’s clear that her local Starbucks baristas can’t handle it. So she took to facebook to document the hilarious misspellings.

Check out some examples below.

Starbucks Strikes Again

More and more, I’m beginning to think Starbucks has gone full pagan. First, there was the lack of snowflakes (which was totally the work of the Devil) and now they’re sacrificing polar bears and selling them as treats! Throats slit from ear to ear and on display for all to see! They’re supposed to be “scarves”. Yeah right. Polar bears don’t wear scarves. Nice try, Starbucks!

I’d eat one. I won’t even lie. Nommy bloody polar bear goodness, just in time for Yule!

Weird Al has called out Starbucks on their evil red cups (which are clearly the work of the Devil). But Starbucks isn’t stopping there! Look for Cthulhu Cappuccino and delectable Krampus Cake offerings in the near future.

You may have heard about the controversy surrounding Starbucks plain red cup this year. Starbucks claims the minimalist design isn’t intended to be part of a “war on Christmas”, rather it’s supposed to be blank canvas for customers to create their own stories. Carrah Aldridge, an Ohio-based artist, knows all about that.

She uses the cups as her canvas, and she creates a wide range of cool, creative art pieces using only sharpies, a white gel pen and copic markers. She posts her creations to her Instagram, and you can check out a selection of her astounding work after the break.
