Guess it wasn’t perky enough there: Disney’s six theme parks will now feature Starbucks coffee at cafes throughout the parks, although the stores’ decor will be in keeping with Disney themes and baristas won’t be wearing their familiar green aprons.
Among other changes: The Starbucks mermaid will be replaced by “The Little Mermaid” Ariel. Instead of tall, grande and venti, coffee sizes will be Minnie, Goofy and Dumbo. And baristas will make your drinks wearing big, white, three-fingered Mickey gloves.
Can’t do that with a Kindle: An 8-foot by 12-foot sculpture of a row of books was installed in front of the Library Place condos on Hoyt Avenue, a creative nod to its neighbor, the Everett Public Library and the classics of literature.
Along with concealing an unsightly electrical transformer box, in a few years the sculpture will allow parents to explain to their children what “books” were.
What lies beneath: Donald Trump, “world-class expert in tourism,” spoke before Scotland’s parliament, protesting plans to build an offshore wind farm visible from his golf resort.
Trump called the turbines ugly and noisy but also fears the wind will lift his comb-over, revealing the same thing beneath his wisps of hair that Scotsmen wear under their kilts.
