My name is...

… Ben, and I’m a coffee bigot. This cartoon encapsulates Starwank, and all the other shite coffee franchises, for me. Sorry.



  1. Funny. I can't drink coffee. But give me that Mocha-Caramel-Hazelnut Frappé any time. :-)Volker Weber#
  2. Like I say, I’m a complete bigot. I even purse my lips when milk is added :-)Ben Poole#
  3. I live in a wonderful little 'village' near the heart of Sydney. I still have to go to a Butcher and a Baker and a Green Grocer to buy my dinner. All the produce is of the highest quality and is served by someone who is an expert in their products.

    A month or so ago a Starwank arrived on our main street. It is the beginning of the end. Next we'll get a McDonalds and a Blockbuster. After that my Butcher and Baker and Green Grocer will go out of business. Then my wonderful little 'village' will become a carbon-copy of every other place on Earth.

    I think I'm going to cry.Anonomolloyous#
