Words of Wisdom

In Spring 2006, Starbucks is releasing a coffee mug series with “words of wisdom” from various philosophers, writers, artists, scientists, and activists.

I’m a little insulted that they haven’t asked me to contribute something. I have so much wisdom to give this world and the Starbucks mug is a way for me to take my message to the streets.

I suppose they haven’t asked me because they are afraid my message might be too religious or too political. They are probably afraid I might scare away the Starbucks crowd with my cutting-edge remarks.

Well, the truth hurts and I think my controversial quotes would spark some interesting debates. Here are some quotes I’d like to submit:

“Clubbing seals is a sin—and so is clubbing with Paris Hilton.”

“Kill the whales. We can boil the blubber to get oil.”

“T.G.I.F. by not eating meat.”

I like the first one because you can buy one mug and make a statement about two important issues at once.

How about:
"When the Pope says, Jump, the world says, How high?"

Pope Joe,
I would like to know what your stance is on the issue of horseback riding being dangerous. Should we Catholics steer away or risk it all?

Dear Mr. Pope,
If you go with the clubbing theme, I think you should have artwork that shows an international no symbol over Paris IN a club, clubbing a baby seal. Its all about multi-tasking.

how about
"sky's the limit if you walk with me" or
"you can take that to the bank, if you walk with me, that is"
no, those aren't very good.
i guess that's why i've not been asked to contribute either.

You probably have to be dead before they put your quote on a mug. If you want it so badly, I guess you'll have to rethink that whole suicide as a mortal sin thing.

How about those who don't drink coffee? What do plan for in that area?
