6oz of pleasure and pain

So Starbucks has a new chocolate drink named Chantico, after the Aztec goddess of the hearth. They say "the name evokes the warmth and enchantment that the goddess Chantico symbolized and the experience that customers will find in every cup of Chantico(TM) drinking chocolate." That's lovely. But last time I checked, the goddess Chantico also wore a crown of poisoned cactus spikes and symbolized the combination of pleasure and pain that is domestic life. Of course, the 6 oz drink does have 390 calories and 21 grams of fat, so perhaps the name is more thoughtful than I give them credit for.

That's funny, people were comparing Kerry's campaign to a poodle dog, saying "That dog don't hunt." In fact poodles were bred to be water retrieving dogs. People are so stupid.
