We're Scraping The Bottom Now

Heard of monkey coffee? How about cat coffee?

Maybe this has gone on for centuries, but how can a planet that lets stuff like this happen survive?

People are feeding monkeys, or cats, coffee beans, letting the beans become digested, and then, upon exit, extracting the beans to make their coffee with. And big fools buy it for hundreds of dollars a pound.

I love the quotes...
"It smells a bit musty, but it roasts up real nice."
"Our coffee has a strong taste and an even stronger aroma."
"It has a strong coffee smell, but different. There is a distinct odor and flavor."

Yeah, I'll bet.


How tasty.

How does such an idea get started anyway? And what else are these same people working on now? I bet they know the infamous Russian Scientists.





"Ewwwww, that's disguuussssssstiiinnnnggg!"


This story reminds me of this classic Hollywood Squares exchange:

"Peter Marshall: What are "dual purpose"cattle good for that other cattle aren't?
Paul Lynde: They give milk and cookies...but I don't recommend the cookies!"

For more Hollywood Squares fun, click here. The Paul Lynde quotes are voluminous and hysterical, but be forewarned, a little adult. However, you'll be spraying the computer screen from laughter, I guarantee it, and therefore they're not advisable to view while eating lunch or drinking.
