I never cease to be amazed at how willing so many folks seem to be to jump on a hysteria bandwagon with ZERO evidence.

AS posted above by MrChitlin - it is a hoax that is targeted at Starbucks (I read that one a couple of years ago), that has recently been reworded by just substituting Oscar Mayer in place of Starbucks... BOTH accusations are FALSE.

If you don't like Starbucks - that is fine and your free choice. But spreading false rumors with intent to cause harm....I think that is called defamation...

Just read the whole article at Snopes- Snopes

Uhm...The only coffee sent to us while in Iraq last year was Starbucks!

Poor guy, I bet you couldnt wait to get home and have some real coffee like folgers or community.

Give me a cup of truckstop coffee any day over starbucks.

I smelled a rat as soon as I read it. You cannot believe anything in an email anymore :smack: A starbucks rep or a rep from any respectable organization or business that was stupid enough to say "we don't support the war or anyone in it" would be fired so fast their head would spin regardless of whether or not the company actually supported the war or not. These emails are getting ridiculous.

I hate the ones that say if you want to get into heaven forward this to 10 people in the next _____ minuets. Or if you don't forward this to ______ people in the next _______ minuets something bad will happen to you or someone that you love.
