Starbucks – favored by repressive dictators everywhere

Chinese President Hu Jintao this week positioned himself as a future spokesmodel for the Seattle-based coffee chain.

"Starbucks coffee shops have mushroomed in China's cities. If I were not serving in this office, I would certainly prefer to go into one of the coffee shops run by Starbucks," he told a group of “dignitaries,” including Bill Gates and Starbucks Chairman Howard Schultz. “And if they screwed up my double venti decaf latte I would have them killed.”

Not who I want endorsing my product but I'm just weird that way.
