Drinking Beer Through a Straw?

There are many problems with this St. Patrick's Day cup that I found at Walgreens.

Much like this product, the shape does not lend itself to proper punctuation, so we're missing an apostrophe and a period. Even stranger, it appears that this cup is intended for beer, yet it has a straw. That's just wrong.

It took me some time to realise what you meant when you said that it was missing a period, since in British English the period is dropped off anyway.

Yeah the vertical wordage is hard to punctuate... Especially when you've been drinking beer from a straw.
