SEGMENTS: Tip of the Hat, Wag of the Finger
VIDEOS: Wednesday, March 3, 2010
Any show that shows Stephen openly pouting, weeping, and talking about his obsession with Starbucks is a winner in my book. While I appreciate the comedy of the show, I also really like it when Stephen brings to my attention an issue which I knew nothing about. The interview with Scheherazade Rehman was very interesting, and I appreciated the perspective on the Greek economy.
I could seriously go for a Trenta cappuccino right now. This waking up at 6a is for the birds. And what is it with Stephen wanting to be covered/submerged in coffee? It’s good to see that the Starbucks Under Stephen’s Desk is still up and running, and that Barista Barry still has a job.
In leiu of a screencap, I would like to share with you this wonderful musical interlude from the show. I trolalalalove it!
- I’m just emotionally drained tonight, you know, because once again, I have been let down by a man. Why am I such a creep magnet? Jimmy, play something to get me out of my funk.
- That principle? Tough s**t.
- What if Gandhi had said, “F**k it, I’m getting a meat lover’s pizza”?
- A modern Greek drama, which means not only is the country’s economy failing, it’s probably banging its mother.
- I’m hungry.
- I hear Goldman has inside information that Greece is hiding its debt.
- Is Greece itself a natural disaster right now?
- These trachea coddlers think they can improve on the design of a hot dog. Hogwash! Which, incidentally, is a major ingredient in hot dogs.
- It’s [Starbucks] version of the Big Gulp, or in this case, the Big Twitch.
- This Trenta is just one step closer to my dream of Starbucks offering a plexiglass room that fills with coffee.
- You know what, folks? I am going to give Starbucks a rare double tip, or Dopio.
- This is great, because even ordering a decaf low-foam skinny frappuccino with cinnamon sprinkles isn’t enough to make me feel like a man.
- Thank you for making it Orange to reflect the current alert level. I assume it changes when it gets less or more dangerous?
