The End is Near (and we deserve it). . . . Funeral Home Teams Up with Starbucks

South Carolina funeral home teams up with Starbucks to bring grieving customers and anyone else with money a bit of comfort.

Let me guess . . . Coffee to die for?

Playing with my Poll Daddy today, which sounds totally wrong, but I didn’t name it. The point is that I have a few questions for you. Since it’s election season, I wrote them in the style of campaign writers.

All the best to all of you for a week with more coffee than funerals.

    We sell Starbucks at my church congregation but it’s a part of a little meeting area.

  2. I’ve seen coffee shops in churches…but a funeral home? I hope they don’t multitask and warm their premade sandwiches in the crematorium ovens.

    And that gummybear song is rather catchy! LOL

  3. Thanks for the mention.
    That coffee shop story just seems like a sitcom waiting to be written?
    Funny post as usual!

  4. Frappucino and a skinny blueberry muffin to go with your deluxe burial package? I can see it catching on.

    Please keep the polls as a Friday feature. I HATE Starbucks. I don’t drink coffee so it goes without saying, which I did.

    • Piper Bayard says:

      Glad you liked that, Tom. It was fun for me to do.

      I don’t drink coffee, either, but I sometimes lurk in Starbuck’s to write when my teens are being loud at home. When I was a secretary, I was often asked to make coffee when I would first start a job. I said nothing. Just did it. Since I don’t drink it, I had no idea how to make it, and I worked that to my advantage. I was never asked twice. 🙂

    Never thought I’d say this, but the Gummy Bear song is damned funny, regardless of the language you listen to it in. It probably goes well with alcohol.

  7. ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ – yah, Twilight fan-fic with rather disturbing smut that somehow got published. Ecch. On the other hand, you could buy an awful lot of Starbucks funeral coffee with the royalty checks. ‘And would you like formaldehyde with that?’

  8. Piper, if you’ve seen the movie Idiocracy, you will know there is 1 business Starbucks should never align with.

    If you haven’t seen it, I won’t tell you…. 😉

    • Piper Bayard says:

      Okay. Now I’m really curious. I can think of several they should never align with so I’m not sure which one you mean, but I’m guessing I should thank you for you discretion in the comments. Thank you. 🙂
