When I wrote that post on the history of the Starbucks mermaid and her strange double tail, I had no idea that Starbucks was at that moment reverting to its old logo — sort of. Now, if you order a hot beverage at Starbucks, you'll get a drink holder with the old logo, modified so that the mermaid's hair now covers her nipples. (And relax — it's her head hair, not her nipple hair. Thank God.)
Now I can't remember what prompted the earlier post, but it certainly wasn't that I had any idea that retro logo would be coming back. Call it a happy coincidence.
