2002-06-11 07:11:35 PM  
Drink your coffee at independant coffee houses.
Support your local economy.
2002-06-11 07:12:18 PM  
Far out.

I think I'll print out the story and put it up at the "public domain" message board at the local Caribou Coffee.

In other shocking news...99.9% of Muslims are not hostile to the United States but more than 50% of Americans are hostile towards Muslim States..
2002-06-11 07:14:39 PM

Why you so bitter?
2002-06-11 07:18:45 PM  
Here come the:

Towelhead jokes.

Camel jokes.

Dubya's persecution of terrorists (guilty until proven innocent).

Fark's persecution of terrorists (just to have something to complain about).
2002-06-11 07:20:53 PM  
MAAAN, I don't care.

I don't drink the stuff. It tastes like ass. Yes, I've tasted ass. Your mom's.
2002-06-11 07:21:14 PM  



2002-06-11 07:21:16 PM  
Then, the terrorists have already won.
2002-06-11 07:21:31 PM  
Palestinian supporter or not, there's no way on earth you'll catch The Regular paying more than $1 for a cup of joe (black with two sugars please). What's that? No free Refills!?! Fark that.
2002-06-11 07:23:01 PM  
One Iced Venti Meccachino to go, leave room for camel piss.
2002-06-11 07:23:02 PM  
Tarvuz: I don't really care much about this particular article, if Muslims own a coffee shop chain i don't give a fark, but a good deal more than 0.1% of Muslims don't like the U.S. You don't have a bunch of state sponsered terrorists launching attacks and people cheering in the streets post Sept. 11th without some sort of animosity. I fully support the rights of Muslims who are Americans and expect them to be treated exactly as I would like to be treated. Likewise I realize that Islam is not a religion of evil. But insisting that most people in the middle east love us and we unreasoningly hate them is stupid and dangerous.
2002-06-11 07:23:36 PM  
sorry, i couldn't resist this one:

Oh, and a political flame war will start in 5... 4...
2002-06-11 07:25:30 PM  
the reason I have joined fark is because I've bean able to espresso myself...

I like hearing all the different viewpoints..I just wish some of them were a bit more informed. Before I lived with Muslim family, I had preconceptions also. I found out that...They are human as well...Amazing but true..of course we drank tea everyday and the occasional vodka toast at night.

Femme Fatale- what would the male version of your name be?

Caribou Coffee has signed an exclusive partnership agreement with Delta Airlines to provide regular and decaffeinated coffee on all of Delta's domestic flights, including Delta Shuttle and Delta Express.

2002-06-11 07:28:23 PM  
Does the coffee have that smell? You know. That smell?
2002-06-11 07:28:48 PM  
So farking what!? I've never heard so many comments to be ashamed of in one place. Thanks guys for the open-mindedness.

What, now its bad to be Islamic? Some of you guys aren't gonna drink no coffee owned by no Muslims?

Get your head out of your asses.

"Islamic" does not equal "terrorist" or "evil".
2002-06-11 07:28:56 PM  
I'm with you Patssle




Allah should learn to live along with others.
2002-06-11 07:29:07 PM  
In yet other astounding news, 0% of Americans have blown themselves up to kill Muslims, while a whole shiatload of Muslims have blown themselves up to kill anyone and everyone they didn't like.

'Course it's still only like 0.00002% of Muslims. Greater than zero though!
2002-06-11 07:29:40 PM  
some old lady in line the other day asked me if i was a college student. when i said i was, she asked me if the arabica coffee she was buying was made by "those towelheads". i waited until she had paid for it and told her it was.
2002-06-11 07:30:29 PM  
that smell, hytes? why now that you mention it...
2002-06-11 07:30:36 PM  
Lgd- honestly..the people in most other countries do not think about the USA as much as we would like to think. In their everyday lives we are far far down the list of what matters to them. I did not think that until I lived in Central Asia and realized much to my ego's dismay that all most people know the USA for is Texas, Hollywood, New York and Mike Tyson. They also know the USA as a place of opportunity to make their lives better if they can get over here. As for Coffee..Nescafe is seriously considered the primo stuff(if you can afford it)
2002-06-11 07:31:51 PM  
OK now you can put me down for being too PC.

2002-06-11 07:32:09 PM  
So is it safe to fly Delta???

I think it might be to easy to get carried away by this. Some may not want to patron businesses backed by certain people, and that's fine, but anything more is just fanning the flame.
2002-06-11 07:33:15 PM  
From the site that snopes links to:

On April 9, 1948, the Irgun and Lehi attacked the village of Deir Yassin near Jerusalem, which had had a peace pact with its Jewish neighbors, and massacred over a hundred noncombatants. This act had no significance in the defence of Jerusalem, and may have brought great harm by forming the motivation for subsequent Arab massacres. It has become a rallying point for hatred of Israel and Zionism.

Caribou Coffee is featured aboard Delta Airlines!

Delta's flight 1989 (non-stop Boston to LAX) which left Boston at about the same time as AA 11 and UA 175 on September 11th, and was also operated by a Boeing 767 airplane, was NOT hijacked!!!

2002-06-11 07:33:49 PM  
In yet more astounding and stupendous news..there were not just americans in the world trade center...even more supercalifragilistically, there were muslims in the towers that died as well.

Umm and have you tried the new Mocha coconut frappaccino?
2002-06-11 07:35:09 PM  
If they're owned by Muslims . . by Arab Muslims . . why can't they make a decent cup of coffee?
2002-06-11 07:36:09 PM  
i love the caribou coffee joint near my house...much better than starbucks...
hell, my friends already think i'm a communist, why not add terrorist to my list?
2002-06-11 07:40:56 PM  
Caribou Coffee being owned by an Islamic Bank != terrorists, you xenophobic assholes. Where do you think coffee comes from? The vast coffee fields of Sussix?

The History of Coffee

Leahrostova-why stop there..why not admit you are a gay commie terrorist that believes in anarchy and that you vote as a democrat.
2002-06-11 07:42:28 PM  
(That was, indirectly, my very point, Jova.)
2002-06-11 07:43:55 PM  
Farthest, I was under the impression that this was just some lighthearted irony. I don't think anyone here is being serious...
I have a couple muslim friends that I've given a hard time about the whole thing. It's just an attempt to make the situation easier to digest. Don't be so uptight (and I mean that in a completely non-offensive way)...
2002-06-11 07:44:00 PM  
"In yet other astounding news, 0% of Americans have blown themselves up to kill Muslims..."

No kidding. I mean, why waste all those nice planes and bombs you've got?
