Have you been to Starbucks? You give your name and it will end up quite crazy.

Think about it,. Starbucks is the largest coffee chain in the world. Meaning that each year, millions of people all around the globe have their names misspelled on cups of Starbucks coffee. They take pictures of their butchered names and post them on Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, wherever. And what do all these pictures have in common? Two things, a misspelled name, and that familiar green Siren, staring at you with her all-knowing gaze. That’s right sheeple, you’ve been giving Starbucks free advertising for years.
