Decaf is disgusting.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and suggest this guy has some problems that go beyond a suspicion of Juan Valdez.

That's almost as good as the woman from my home town who tried to kill her husband with a frozen squirrel (no link sorry it happened in the early 80's)

Well, miss-lapin, you have moved me to actually do a Google search for the terms "frozen squirrel murder." More disturbingly, it came up with plenty of hits. Here's something I found in a thing called The_Mouth(you'll have to scroll down):

"In an unusual wife-battering case, Mr. Kao Khae Saeo-han, 26, of Sacramento, California, became hysterical and
repeatedly struck his wife with a frozen squirrel."
(Spectator, 1992)

(Hey, it's also "documented" in the Flummery Digest!)

I bet he beat her with the frozen squirrel because he too felt his coffee was "disgusting".

Yes, I'd like a large Caffe Disgustoso, hold the squirrel, please.

We've replaced the fine coffee this 84-year-old man usually drinks with Folger's Crystals.

Let's see if he can tell the difference.

Oh. Oh dear.

Looks like he could tell the difference.

On a Not Even Mildly Related Note:

What was the theme music to the widely-broadcast coffee commercials of a few years back? Not for a particular brand, but just for Colombian Coffee. It was the commercial with the waterfall, the somber narration, etc.

I swear this is a classical piece, but I can't place it. Want me to hum it? :)

I'm posting this before my Common Sense Kicks In.

ebarker: it was Ennio Morricone's soundtrack to The Mission. I only know that because it annoyed me that they used it in a commercial...

Man kills wife with hammer = Tragic case of domestic abuse.

Man kills wife with hammer over a disgusting cup of coffee = hil-LARE-i-ous.

(Sorry. Don't mean to get all "more-sensitive-than-thou" on y'all, here. But really: c'mon.)

Actually, I'm sure I could make jokes about it anyway.

Remember, tragedy happening to someone else = comedy.

In the words of George Carlin "More for me!!"
