Starbucks Rolls Out Shipping Container Drive Thrus

Lewis Black, the stage comedian, will have to run for cover very soon. He tells audiences that he has seen the end of the universe and it's where one Starbucks is just across the street from another Starbucks.

Now we can all see the end of the universe with Starbuck's latest coffee houses, modular container shipping crate drive-thru stores that can be moved from an unprofitable spot to one that maybe you will stop at on your way to and from work.

Let's see now, there are over 1,000,000 unused shipping containers in the US right now and that means they can have a drive thru for every 350 people in the country. Wow, it could mean that the empty lot at  the end of our street might become a Starbucks. We have over 400 people on our street. It could happen.

Maybe now we can get a cup of coffee for less than cost of a gallon of gas.
