    Coffee Snobs New Mascot

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    From an unrelated Forum forum i hang around on/US based/Gunboards

    OT: Its Going To Be A Long Night
    I just got home from school. Walked in the door to find the dog on the couch, teeth chattering loudly. An empty coffee wrapper was on the floor,`part of a shipment destined for a friend in Iraq. Just a few tiny bits of coffee remained. More packages of coffee were scattered nearby.
    The dog has eaten enough dry coffee to make 10 cups. Irish creme flavor. Since shes a Belgian Malinois, she already had a personality like a Border Collie on methamphetamine BEFORE she ate the coffee. And she weighs close to 80 pounds.
    The emergency vet said (between spasms of laughter) that shell be up all night. He said hes pretty sure I will be, too.
    All prayers will be appreciated.

    Does a half siamese cat count? She is nicknamed the labracat retriever as she will eat anything she can and will play fetch for hours on end.

    The other cats think she is mad.

    Only entire pets, not portions thereof should be considered for mascot status.

    I had to take a second read when I first read Lucindas half siamese cat post. But wouldnt half a siamese still be one whole one? ;)

    Two years ago I lived with my family working as a boarding master in a boys boarding school. My wife also happened to be the school nurse so she had to deal with this one... ::)

    Two 14 year olds were bored late one Saturday night so they thought they would see what would happen if they drank a brew of instant with over 20 teaspoons each! :o A small foam cup almost full of Nescrape mixed to a sort of goo then, god knows how, they drank one each.

    Like the dog owner at the top, we found out a lot about excessive caffeine use that night.

    The boys just did not know what they had done. Besides the racing heartbeat (up near 200!), profuse sweating and shakes, they got the runs in the worst kind of way ;D (Well it seems funny now)

    They were sent off to hospital where it was all taken very seriously and after stabilising, they were given a stern lecture by a doctor.

    Ive probably told this one before but when my daughter made me her first cup of coffee it tasted a bit strong.

    So I asked how many spoons of coffee shed used.
    I think the answer was 5.

    She figured if 5 was good enough for Milo in her milk then 5 must be right to make me a coffee.

    Lucky the dog in the OP was large in size.

    If it was an already-nervous little "battery-dog" it would most likely have bounced off the walls for an hour or so at high speed (like Flubber) and then EXPLODED :)

    I quite like that line but I dont think it is entirely true... have you tried instant lately? I dont think that makes you stronger ;)

    It does make you stronger - instant gives you the strength to say "no" next time someone offers it. ;D

    Re: Coffee Snobs New Mascot

    I had an overnight stay in hospital recently.
    Well 3am on anyway.

    Brekkie came along and on my tray there was some hot water and a choice of a teabag or a Nes43 sachet.

    I decided on the "coffee".

    It didnt kill me (tasted like ****).

    Vivianes right.
    I dont think Ill be doing that again.

    Yes thanks.
    Just a niggly pain in a spot you should be careful about (chest).
    Probably was just muscular or a cartilage tear.
