"Happy Mother's Day! Here's 25 cents on the dollar."

Seeing this limited edition "Premium" Starbucks gift card almost makes me incredibly angry. The idea that Starbucks thinks we're so stupid that we would buy $50 worth of Frappuccino at an insane 400% mark-up makes me want to throw my desk out the window... until I remember that we actually are that stupid. The very fact that they're selling this makes me think that they ran the numbers and figured out just how many imbeciles they can trick into handing a metal and ceramic (metal and ceramic?!) gift card to their mothers next month.
