(Newser) – Remember that $23.60 priciest Starbucks drink ever? Amateur hour. A Washington state man claims he has set a new record after doing "a lot of research on it." After being unable to find any proof of a beverage pricier than $23.60 having been ordered, Beau Chevassus set out to order the "Quadriginoctuple Frap," he tells the New York Daily News. The $47.30 drink is: a venti 40-shot mocha Frappuccino with soy milk, mocha drizzle, matcha powder, protein powder, caramel brulee topping, strawberry, two bananas, caramel drizzle, Frappuccino chips, and vanilla bean. Sounds ... gross.

But the 27-year-old actually got the beverage on the cheap: He brought his own 52-ounce mug (purchased at Goodwill), and ordered the drink on his birthday—so it was free. And, bonus, the baristas gave him eight extra shots of espresso on the house. The Daily News notes that it's not clear if Chevassus did indeed set a record, as Starbucks didn't reply to its request for comment. But the paper did provide this awful detail: Chevassus only drank half the drink—over a few days. "It was so sweet, it made my gums hurt," he said. UPI notes that he brought the baristas donuts as a thank you for their efforts.

Makes no sense. It shouldn't count if you have to pour it into a huge jug. If this is going to be a real challenge, then it needs to fit in one of their standard cups. Otherwise you could order the whole drinks menu, pour it into a 5 gallon cooler, and call it the most expensive drink.

Back in the 80's, the chicken headed zombies worked in university libraries. Now they progressed to clerking Starbucks. You know, the ones with dog studs in their eye lids. So owner Shultzie decided to open up around 2000 new stores a few years back. One store in particular in my city was located in the middle of the seciton-8 and gangland district. It lasted about 3 months before Shultz closed down 1500 of those newer stores. Most became Mexican restaurants. Shultz then spent millions trying to sue the owners of the Oklahoma City Thunder to get his team back. He lost out on that and he closed more stores because he had to pay his legal bills. So now he's come up with a boneheaded idea that we will pay $7.00 for his over priced swill. So I say go out and spend some money on a Keurig and buy only Kenyan coffee. You can save whole villages by doing so. Don't worry about Hawaian coffee as they are flush with cash. American coffee only supports drug lords as they grow cocaine on the same hills as they do coffee. They also ship meth, cocaine, and heroin inside of coffee shipments in Clinton's NAFTA trucks. I know this because a NAFTA truck crashed in my town several years ago. It crashed into a gas tanker and blew a 30-foot deep hole in the interstate highway. Troopers found 100lbs of powder cocaine in the brake air reservoir. They opened up the trailer and found a load of coffee. They had to offload the coffee anyway due to the crash and when they got to the middle, they found 1100 lbs of meth, and 400 vials of heroin. These shipments are making it to all points in the US from Mexican shipping centers that support NAFTA.
