Riddick Bowe rips Starbucks price hikes with colorful Twitter analogy

Mike Tyson isn’t the only former boxing champ who has a way with words. Riddick Bowe also knows how to turn a phrase as he showed with his Thursday morning tweet about the prices at Starbucks.

Riddick Bowe is a regular poet.

Not only is he a poet, but like most Americans, he is deeply concerned about the price of coffee. What is up with Starbucks raising prices like Riddick Bowe raises the wet stuff under a girl’s ding dong? Damn it Starbucks. Pretty soon people will be paying like ten bucks for a small cup of coffee.

I applaud Riddick Bowe for bringing this issue to light. And I further applaud him for having such a beautiful grasp of the English language. His imagery is truly breathtaking.

Seriously, I won’t get that image out of my head probably for the rest of the morning.

Who needs Walt Whitman when you have Riddick Bowe? That stuff should be in a book. People should be reading each other that stuff while lounging beneath spreading oaks. Or something.
