On Friday, a "Dumb Starbucks Coffee" opened in Los Feliz, Los Angeles. It looks exactly like a regular Starbucks, right down to the logo, green colors, and Starbucks lingo like "venti" "grande" and "frappuccino."

We questioned whether or not this was even legal. In their statement, they claimed, "Although we are a fully functioning coffee shop, for legal reasons Dumb Starbucks needs to be categorized as a work of parody art. So, in the eyes of the law, our 'coffee shop' is actually an art gallery and the 'coffee' you’re buying is considered the art. But that's for our lawyers to worry about. All you need to do is enjoy our delicious coffee!"
