What in the world is going on? Does anyone know what happened to spark this rage over the Starbucks Stanley Cup?
It seems like it came out of nowhere. I heard one analysis that the cup couldn’t sell years ago, and so it was debunked. However, some influencers over the years found that they could actually get some value out of it, and they partnered with Stanley to bring some life back into it. Then, BAM! The whole world is fighting over the Stanley Cup.
There have been plenty of fights over the Stanley Cup. But normally, they happen during a hockey game. That reminds me of the joke: I went to a fight, and a hockey game broke out. Stick with me here. I can’t always tell zingers.
Anyway, we’re not talking about that kind of Stanley Cup. We’re talking about the new version of the Stanley line of merchandise that is somehow connected to Starbucks, and because Starbucks is in Target, chaos has ensued in those stores.
They rent for about $2,000, and you can only have one if you can answer these riddles three. It might not be that bad, but when I heard they were going for over $50, I had to scratch my head and ask myself, “Are they lined with gold? Does it make the coffee itself? What’s the thing?”
Is it one of those things where if everyone else has one, I have to have one? Is that it?
Well, I have a solution. I offer the NOT A STANLEY! It’s the same kind of cup with a lid and a handle. Only you won’t have to fight your neighbor or rob your best friend to have one. You’ll be able to order it out of the comfort of your own home without the worry of getting an elbow to the face.
Isn’t that special? The NOT A STANLEY. Because it’s not a Stanley!
