Is that what we think it is?

The Nutcracker featured on Starbucks' new holiday cups shows some very familiar similarities to the Guy Fawkes mask that is often associated with  group Anonymous and Occupy Wall Street protesters.

Was the resemblance to the Guy Fawkes mask intentional? Well, it may be.

As the Gothamist points out, Starbuck's CEO Howard Schultz has recently made some comments about the political and social state of the United States that could be interpreted as support for the protesters.

Supporting the Guy Fawkes cup theory is a recent statement made by none other than Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz. "We've lost something," Schultz said. "We've either lost our conscience, or lost our soul... People want human connection... I thought there would be social unrest in America. I mean violence."
