Dumb Starbucks Coffee is a really smart idea.

(via @dumbstarbucks)

Some brilliant geniuses of above-average intelligence in L.A. decided to open a "parody" Starbucks Coffee shop and sell a bunch a "parody" Starbucks drinks to people. Apparently, they're able to use the name and logo, so long as they put the word "dumb" in front of it. Because that makes it legal under parody law. I guess? The Dumb Starbucks Coffee people seem to think so at any rate, because that's the idea on which they're staking their whole business. Doesn't seem in the spirit of the law to me, but what do I know? I'm dumb.

Anyway, you can take a look at some of their dumb menu choices right here.You'll notice it looks a lot like Starbucks' menu, except dumber. By which I mean smarter. I think.

And here's the FAQ from the store, in which they explain their highly questionable, but even more highly entertaining, rationale:

Should have been called "Frequently Asked Dumb Questions,"
but I say that about every FAQ.
