A gallon frapp? Two hours later they had to peel him off of the ceiling.

I know they do things bigger in Texas but this is ridiculous.

I dunno. After about 60 ounces of straight coffee in a day, my nerves start vibrating.
This guy could have become his own infinite power source.

Ahead of me in line? I'd be much more concerned if he were behind me on the hiway.

"10,000 milligrams of caffeine — a little more than two of Chifari's Frappuccino — could kill an adult."

Starbucks...doing what they can for depopulation.
Obviously this is their "mission"

As long as he's not ahead of me at the urinal.

How much is it with coffee in it...?

I bet he was vibrating like a tuning fork for at least a week.

There's a slow time at Starbucks?!?

Key quote: "This particular beverage customization was excessive and something that we do not encourage," Starbucks spokeswoman Maggie Jantzen told ABC.

Perhaps they don't "encourage it," yet they took his money and provided the beverage. So, nice attempt at CYA, Ms. Jantzen!

This situation would have made a great Peter Sellers movie.

Room for cream with that?

A fool and his money, etc.

Wiredog: Two hours later, he peed off the ceiling!

Get the "L" outta there!

A methaccino is much more portable.
