Too Far: Dunkin Donuts Holiday Cup Is Richard Dawkins Giving The Finger

I consider myself a reasonable woman. Although I’m disappointed by Starbucks’ choice to eliminate Christmas from their holiday cup designs in recent years, I’m not the type to get up in arms about little things like that. But after Dunkin Donuts revealed their new holiday cups, I couldn’t stay silent any longer.

When I stopped into Dunkin Donuts yesterday, I was greeted by a terrible surprise when the cashier handed me my hot chocolate in their new holiday cup. There was no Christmas motif, no red and green, and not a seasonal snowflake to be found. It was just the Dunkin Donuts logo and a picture of notorious atheist Richard Dawkins giving me the finger. I asked to speak to the manager immediately.

“This is outrageous!” I yelled at her. “How could you make such a horrible cup?!”

“I don’t know, I don’t make the cup designs,” she replied sheepishly. “They were just trying to be inclusive I guess? I honestly don’t even know who that is.”

But I could not be silenced. I stood up on a table and spoke my piece to the several people waiting in line.

“I stood idly by when the media took Christ out of Christmas. I stayed silent when Starbucks took Christmas out of their cups. But I refuse to drink from a cup with an atheist flipping me off! This is the epitome of PC culture!”

The other customers didn’t react, but I know they were on my side. Anyway, I guess I’ll be making my coffee at home from now on.

Merry Christmas!

They should put jesus on their cups, but have him look middle eastern. Like slap this depiction of what he probably looked like if he existed:

With a name like Smucker's, it has to be god.

si, I resized your pic. That pic is from the Popular Mechanics article about what Jesus would most likely have looked like based on forensics and what the buy-bull says. The buy-bull says when the guards went to arrest Jesus they couldn't tell him apart from the others so he would have been dark-skin Mediterranean. I've joked in the past that conservative xians would probably kick Jesus out of the US because they'd think he was an illegal immigrant.
