What's the second lid for anyway?
2
Can I get a Lemonparty Frappucino served in one of those?
3
Can I get a Tub Girl Mochaccino to go?
4
Perfect for your goatse au lait.
6
I'll take mine in Goatse Grande, please.
7
One guy; one plastic cup.
8
@1 two different types of lid.
9
I remember when I was served a lattle in a big round supersized ceramic coffee cup.

But that was in Europe where they also know what an espresso is. And serve it with a twist of lemon.
11
What is the big poofed up lid for? Do these drinks have a mountain of whipped cream that must not be squished? Honestly. This foo-foo non-coffee crap must stop!
12
Back in my day, a lid was a good bag of weed, and a cup was something you wore to protect your junk while playing baseball. "Two lids one stylish cup" would have been the pitcher and his foppish catcher getting it on after some major-league toking up.

@12 thanks for making a joke using obsolete vernacular
14
@13 Word.
15
Thanks, Starbucks. I was worried that we weren't filling our landfills fast enough. Problem solved.
16
One Frappitorum please.
17
I hope those gold domes are not the lids the sign is talking about. Those things look horrible and that cup is not stylish at all.

@ 2 wins this by a mile. Sorry, @ 3 and 4.
19
@8, yes, but WHY two types of lid?
20
@9

If you need a twist of lemon to cut the bitterness of your espresso, you have some pretty shitty coffee.
21
Yep, it's the whipped cream topping. I don't know why you'd want to switch from the domed lid to the flat, unless it's for greater ease of straw usage.
22
@9: Where did they give you a twist of lemon with espresso? I've been to a lot of places in Europe, but I've never seen that. I've also had a lot of good European coffee, and personally, that sounds like it would ruin it for me.
23
Great! Some extra shit to throw away!
24
@18 okey dokey Great Arbiter of slog wins and losses. I'll try harder to get your approval next time.
25
@22 the few places that have served me a twist of lemon with an espresso (all in the US) couldn't tell me why or what I was supposed to do with it. Maybe it's just garnish?
26
@ 24, it helps if a) you're funny, and b) you can accept criticism graciously.
27
The twist of lemon is to release a drop of lemon oil from the peel. It's a little hit of aroma and flavor. Seriously, how do you people not know this?
28
@12, 14 That was swell!
29
Is there a katty equivalent to the Whaaaambulance?
30
@26 " you can accept criticism graciously."

IRONY!

@27

Because there are 3 types of coffee drinkers

1. People that know coffee and drink good coffee don't need the hit of lemon

2. People that don't know shit about coffee and drink whatever is in front of them, and are just generally oblivious

3. People that THINK they know coffee, and automatically think what is in front of them is the best thing ever as long as is served in some fancy place.

Putting lemon rind in really good coffee is like putting Coke in really good scotch.
32
@31 I hear ya.

If it's really good coffee, don't even add sugar or cream.

And, if it's the really good stuff, like what *I* get, you don't even brew it. You just eat the still-hot roasted beans straight up, grinding them with your teeth, and moistening them only with you saliva.

That's the only way to properly enjoy coffee.
Anything else is chumpville swill.

@2 - If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life ...
34
I DON'T GET IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
35
@26 a) fuck off b) fuck off
36
At least these are reusables. I'm assuming one lid is flat the other is domed?

Of course with two xxx one cup would you ever use that cup again no matter how much it was washed?
37
Jesus, guys, you get into pissing matches and slapfights on a post about Starbucks cup lids.

Get some perspective.

@32

Win!
