Have you ever had this happen to you? You're in line at the coffee shop, and you reach out your hand to take the cup, but you find that some strange name is written on it.
Nearly everyone has experienced this at one time or another. The results can be hilarious—even cringeworthy. On this list of crazy coffee cups, you won't believe the wild things baristas have come up with.
None of these examples are minor misspellings. From words that are not names to throwing random letters on a cup outright, every one of these cups is sure to make you blink. Whoever wrote them is clearly not in the habit of correct, or even logical, spelling!
