Putting the Fun in Frankenstein

"The Frankenstein Poet" by Billy Collins

Pursued by the mob of townspeople
and the shaky glow of their torches,
he finds refuge crouching under a mossy bridge.

He takes a notepad from his huge jacket
and feels inspiration arriving
like a forking of electricity.

He fingers one of the wooden pegs
the doctor tapped into his temples,
little handlebars of the imagination now,

and his pencil moves in the darkness
to a jostling of vocabulary.

He is starting to write an elegy
for all the people whose bodies
are now parts of his body.
It opens with the eyes.

--Billy Collins

The Franken Frappuccino

The Franken Frappuccino, if you couldn't already tell by the name, is named after the monster from Frankenstein. The great thing about the Frapp is that, on top of it being fairly easy to order, it's actually pretty tasty, and it's almost like eating mint chocolate chip ice cream. We learned about it through Starbucks Secret Menu.

How to order it: Ask for a Green Tea Frappuccino with one pump of peppermint syrup, white chocolate sauce, and java chips. Top it all off with whipped cream and mocha drizzle.
