The Wall Street Journal’s David Boaz has ignited a tempest in a coffee cup by revealing that Starbucks, which now offers customized gift cards emblazoned with a phrase or statement of your choice, rejected the phrase “laissez faire“. In response the blogosphere has launched an irony and awe campaign.

Consider for a moment the source of our consternation: a coffee company is censoring the customization of our gift cards. We have jumped the shark, people. Repent and be saved.
