Bad Coffee Joke

November 25, 2010 at 3:35 PM (Musings) (, , )

Happy Thanksgiving!  On to something much more important: my hit-and-miss sense of humour.

While I’m home for the holiday, Mom was great enough to save some Starbucks coffee for me.  What I didn’t realise was that this actually an accomplishment for her: the Colombian coffee, a medium roast, was too strong for her. Starbucks Kenya coffee label elephant For her to palate the stuff, she had to cut it with Maxwell House.  I know, I shed a tear when I heard it, too.  My response?

“Mom, be happy you didn’t get Kenya [a bold coffee]: that stuff so strong it can wake up the elephant on the bag!”

Per usual, I thought it was a hit, but everyone else seemed to miss it.
