  1. Steven says:

    Ah, but the toon doth raise a philosophical question: if he brings him a decaf, is he really bringing him coffee?

  2. James Joyner says:

    So true.

  3. Cam says:

    About once a month I’ll get a jonesing for a doublelattemochachino or something else that’s not really coffee.. otherwise I drink a gallon of the stuff black, from styrofoam cups, every morning.

  4. Yeah. The decaf thing bothered me, too. It should have been something simple like “house blend.” But not decaf.

  5. James Joyner says:

    I think the reason for decaf relates to the implied gun threat. The waiter is like, “This guy is crazy. He don’t need no caffeine.”
