“It Tastes Kind Of … ‘Scuse Me, Gotta Go!”

by Steve Bremner

“[N]ow that Americans are finally getting the opportunity to try [Starbucks coffee with olive oil],
they’re finding that taste isn’t all that they have to worry about. As one customer revealed rather
bluntly on Twitter: ‘Apparently @Starbucks thinks I need help having diarrhea with this
#oleato #coffee.’”

Eat This, Not That

Morningly, dawningly,
Many Americans
Strain to awaken, then
Strain on the pot.

Prone to intestinal
Now you can kill those two
Birds with one shot.
