I don't usually get my morning coffee at Starbuck's, but I went there this morning. I ordered a Caffe Mocha. When asked for my name, on a whim I said "Spartacus." When they called me to pick up the Mocha, I stood up and said out loud, "I am Spartacus." People turned to look at me. Then an old man in the back stood up and said, "No. I am Spartacus." Then, one by one, everyone in the shop stood up and yelled, "I am Spartacus!"

As Hannibal would say, "I love it when a plan comes together."

I’m Spartacus, and so is my wife!

Wondering how many of the younger generation understand the reference.

I met Sparticus, he was getting coffee... he was a little "full of himself".
The coffee was OK, I came for the wi-fi but it was hard to focus on the deviance on my screen with everyone saying they too were Spartacus.

I doubt that some of them were even Spartacus.
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.

Oh, man. That's a terrific story! Thanks.

Multiplying Spartacuses (or would that be Spartaci?)

It could be a new trick...
