Coffee lovers understand there is something wonderful, and something rather silly, about their coffee-love. Which perhaps explains why funny coffee memes are so popular online.
Let’s face it, even before the inter-web and it’s meme-scene, there were already funny coffee mugs and t-shirts doing the same thing. But in that case you had to actually find and buy and use an actual physical mug, and invite your friends round for a coffee to share the joke. In those days, everything was far more long-winded.
But now, with everything, including our kettles and coffee-makers, connected to the web, all you need is a digital picture of a funny coffee mug and you can share it with the world whilst sitting at home, alone, drinking out of a tupperware container — how wonderful is that?
Not that I’ve ever done that, of course…
Possibly, the feeling of having over-caffeinated oneself with multiple tupperwares of strong coffee, is the impetus behind many coffee jokes and memes. There is frequently something just a little overwrought about the humor, as if, like the coffee drinker, it might just tip over into madness. But that’s the beauty of them too.
We’ve put together a list of some of the best coffee memes we found on the interweb. Although we had been drinking coffee so we might have accidentally posted a bunch of monkeys on unicycles instead. In the coffee-zone, boundaries frequently blur.
Think I’m being ridiculous? Drink an extra coffee this morning and tell me if you don’t think that unicycling monkey was hopped up on caffeine…
