Ki Yachol Nuchal!

New olah; mom and wife. In small ways, every day, trying to rectify the error in judgement of my zaydies, the meraglim. "See these big grapes? We can make really big wine!"

The Holy Queen Esther Coffee Mug — Get ’em while they’re hot!

Posted by rutimizrachi on 18/03/2009

Yom revi’i, 22 Adar 5769.

 Ahhhhhhh…  Just settling down to my morning coffee, which tastes just a little better these days.

According to Egyptian cleric Safwat Higazi, Starbucks Coffee has been using its “siren” logo to promote Jewish history’s lovely Queen Esther

Who knew?  All this time, I thought it was a picture of a mermaid.    (I guess Queen Esther is just preparing a couple of really nice salmon for Maahi Kabab for Shabbat.)

 
Thank you, Safwat Higazi, for bringing to the world’s attention that Starbucks is as holy as all those folks on line at the airport coffee shops have always said it was.  I will never again make fun of someone who orders a Venti Grande Macchiato Cappuccino with a Quad.
Don’t I always say that the first cup of coffee in the morning deserves it’s very own bracha?
Hat tip to Charlie Shrem for sharing the memri.org article.
Another good article on this subject is by Melanie Phillips, entitled “The Protocols of the Elders of Coffee.” My favorite line is “Ah yes, Starbucks: home of the Zionist genocidal apartheid bean.”    

Kudos to my children in the States for rushing out and buying for me the Holy Queen Esther Coffee Mugs.  The coffee really does taste better now, guys.
