Today is National Coffee Day – Get All Caffeinated and Crazy!

In case you missed it, today is National Coffee Day!  So if you love the roasted bean thing, call it "black gold", or whatever, this is your day!

Head over to your favorite coffee joint, say hi to your barista (I still don't think "barista" is an actual thing), and order your favorite caffeinated drink in whatever language they make you speak in their store.

Ever Wonder Why the Starbucks People Can’t Seem to Spell Your Name?

Every time.  Every Starschmucks.  You place your order, pay way too much for whatever you're going to drink, and wait for the "barista" to boil some water with beans and put it in a cup.

And then you see the name they wrote on your cup, and it looks like it was written by a 3-year-old with only a tenuous grasp of the english language.

This parody video attempts to turn that experience into something intended.  What if the "barista" is really doing it on purpose to mess with you?

Everybody Sounds Insane to Someone Who Doesn’t Drink Coffee

Hi, my name is Johnnie, and I don't like coffee.

(PAUSE FOR ALL THE GASPS TO SUBSIDE)

I never have.  I don't like the flavor, the smell, how it tastes when someone you're kissing drank it...the only bit that's okay is the first 10 second when the bag is opened and you get that initial smell of the beans.  After that, get it away.
