WTF – Yahoo! News Mentions Starbucks' Ass Hairs

Starbucks Headline at Yahoo News

Yes, I know it is juvenile, but I had a good laugh when I saw the typo of asshares in the above headline while browsing the latest news at Yahoo! News earlier tonight.
I came across this headline just before leaving work and I just had to grab a screen shot. The headline has since been updated but I still wanted to share it with everyone. Hope it gives you a laugh as well.

Hey there’s nothing wrong with juvenile if it raises a few laughs. I always feel that more of us should remember to be a kid more often.

I would think that traffic would increase with a fall in asshairs

It’s sad but true – customers just don’t want to buy coffee from a shop without ass hairs.
This is where I have been going wrong…

I always drink my asshares in the morning, extra foamy with skim milk.
THAT’S the way to start a Friday!

Lol, I am glad everyone got a good laugh out of this headline that I came across.
All I know is that these ass hairs (or ass hares) brought in quite a bit of traffic to this blog!

I’m not a fan of ass hairs but I’m certainly a fan of Starbucks Caramel Macchiatto. I definitely prefer not having an ass hair (or even a ass hare) in my Starbucks. A good chuckle all the same.. 🙂

I’d venture that most (not all, there are some strange folks out there) would agree that sans ass hair is the way to go. 🙂

LMAO Derek! I’m still subscribed to the comments for this post and it’s fun seeing it still attracts attention after 3 years! Way to go 🙂

Hey there Ange, how have you been? It is funny to see old posts that still get comments (non-spam comments anyway) but to be fair I just linked to this in my latest post.
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
