Starbucks to offer “il secchio di caffè” in Washington, DC

Many of you have heard that Starbucks has offered a 32 oz beverage size to compete with McDonalds.  Termed the “trenta,” this size is being test marketed in California.

We in the Nation’s Capital are calling for a larger size for those long commutes into the city.  We suggest the “secchio.”  Italian for Bucket or Pail, this larger size should be able to keep us awake during our 10 mile commute which can take 2 or 3 hours during rush hour.  The only problem?  Drinking that much is going to make urinals a necessity on buses, and many passenger vehicles, or perhaps evenly spaced port-a-potties along freeways across the Metro DC area.
