business news in context, analysis with attitude

Two new revelations regarding the "Dumb Starbucks" store that has opened in Los Angeles, declaring itself a parody of the national coffee chain.

For one thing, the Los Angeles Times reports that "comedian Nathan Fielder of the Comedy Central show 'Nathan for You' revealed that he's the man behind the faux cafe." The shop seemed to be part of the show's planned second season.

For another, the store apparently isn't open at the moment - it has been shut down by the LA County Department of Public Health for operating without a health permit.
