Mixed feelings

Posted: November 12, 2012 in Disney

So, word has come out that Disney is replacing the iconic Main Street Bakery with a Starbucks location. This really generates mixed feelings for me… on one hand, Starbucks is an iconic brand with good coffee (so far as I remember), but, on the other  hand, I think of this quote attributed to the late George Carlin:

The more complicated the Starbucks order, the bigger the asshole. If you walk into a Starbucks and order a “decaf grande half-soy, half-low fat, iced vanilla, double-shot, gingerbread cappuccino, extra dry, light ice, with one Sweet-n’-Low and one NutraSweet,” ooh, you’re a huge asshole.

I’ll reserve judgement until I see the finished result… if it’s done right, I’ll deal. I won’t like it, because I’m never pleased when they mess with something iconic for the sake of a few more dollars, but if they jack it up, all bets are off.
