Because we REALLY LOVE coffee!

I've seen this "inspirational" slogan many times before. And I get it; I really do. But I am a warped brain, and I see something else entirely in this particular presentation of the sentence..

The accompanying pic is of a steaming coffee mug and beans superimposed over "word art" listing all sorts of coffee and coffee-related words. Perhaps we are to associate coffee with "Good Morning."

Or MAYBE... more sinisterly... we are intended to see "coffee, coffee, coffee!" as the thing that gets it all done, that handles all of our problems for us. PERHAPS we are to associate all the java-y goodness with the statement "This is God"! That's right! Rank idolatry! The worship of COFFEE! Bum-bum-Buuuuum!

Naw, probably not. But now, you can't un-see it, so my work here is done.

Someone once said that seeing is believing. Not being one to run with the crowd, I tend to think of it the other way around. Maybe it's more about being about to see what you believe (or, we can hope, un-see what you don't).

May coffee never in your heart be a case for apostasy, Brain friend! We believe it never could with you. :)
