The baristas at Starbucks on Smith Street in Brooklyn are trying to get into the holiday spirit, but locals aren't really buying it. A Racked correspondent, who sent the above image, writes: "This sign made me gag a little this morning, much as I am sure a pumpkin-flavored coffee drink would." Just wait: In another month or so till they'll be bringing egg nog back. [Racked Inbox]
