  • Wait a minute. People are swallowing spoonfuls of cinnamon for kicks now? And videotaping it? Excuse me while I bang my head against my dining room table and weep for humanity. (Wall Street Journal)
  • Starbucks continues to march toward world domination with the opening of its new Evolution Fresh juice store. That sounds delightfully refreshing. (USA Today)
  • Move over, Burger King. Wendy’s is now the second biggest hamburger chain in the United States. It makes since. I only know of two Burger Kings in my general vicinity, but I can find a Wendy’s pretty easily. (Huffington Post)
