Richard Dawkins giving the bird to you? Me? Christmas?

I can't vouch for this source:

Can't be real. For one thing, she says: "There was no Christmas motif, no red and green, and not a seasonal snowflake to be found" -- but the cup shown in the image clearly has ONLY red and green colours on it, and the large border design is clearly pine needles from an evergreen tree.

Also, this: http://www.business2community.com/enter ... xWFur6m.97

Dunkin’ Donuts to Feature Richard Dawkins Giving the Finger on Their Holiday Cups? Reports Are Fake.

...Above Average is in the business of creating comedy. As their website says:

We are a leading multi-disciplinary entertainment company that develops and produces original, laugh-out-loud comedy programming. Founded in 2012 as an independent subsidiary of Lorne Michaels’ Broadway Video, Above Average is a digital-first company with a 40-year television and film legacy.

Lorne Michaels of Saturday Night Live fame, that is. In fact, if you watch the video (which is very funny) on their About page, you will even see a lot of SNL cast members — past and present — in the video.

So don’t mistake this funny bit of satire for truth this holiday season. Richard Dawkins is not giving anyone the finger on a coffee cup (yet, anyway).
