New Starbucks' Holiday Cups Are Here... Anybody Offended This Time?

I'm offended that it's $5 for a plain hot chocolate.

The new Starbucks holiday cups are here.  And, as always... for some reason, the question is:  Will they offend anyone?

For the past few years, the Starbucks holiday cups have been at the center of the War On Christmas, which is totally a real thing and not just a way to get people irrationally worked up to get attention on the internet.

So are this year's Starbucks cups "Christmas-y" enough?  Well, there are four designs and they seem to be pretty Christmas-y.  Here's what they look like:

1.  A red cup with green polka dots.

2.  A white cup with the words "MERRY COFFEE" printed over and over in red.

3.  A cup covered in red and white candy cane stripes with "STARBUCKS" printed over and over in green.

4.  And a dark green cup with small white letters saying "MERRY COFFEE" wrapping around it.

I for one, am immediately offended. It's "MERRY XOFFEE" IN MY HOUSE.
