Sunday Funday: Don't Drink Racist Coffee

When it comes to coffee, I'm pretty much a newb. I'm fifteen - what can I say?

As an example of my newb-ness, recently I went to the coffee shop with my dad, planning to get a moccachino. But when I got there, I found that was something like five different moccachinos. And so, because I didn't want to look like one of those kids on the old McDonalds ads who took forever to decide what they wanted, I just picked the first one I saw - even though it was late in the afternoon and this one had a double shot.

Me, later that night: Oh, that's OK. I didn't want to sleep tonight anyway.

But, anyway, I figure that coffee's somehow important to the creative process. I mean, I don't think I follow a single writer on twitter who doesn't have the words "coffee addict" somewhere on their profile.* Retailers sell coffee mugs with the word "writer" them - yet I have never seen one bearing words such as "accountant" or "real estate agent" or "President of the United States." Something tells me it's part of the writer stereotype. Plus, there's even a coffee on the NaNoWriMo logo. Need I say more?

I also figure that I like it.

And for these two reasons, I drink it.

Now, the reason for this post is because I became aware of something rather important in terms of coffee a while back, and I thought I should let you all know what it is. I was introduced, first, to the comedian Julian Smith's youtube channel, then to the video that I'm about to show you.

So sit back, relax, enjoy. And remember: don't drink that racist coffee.

* May or may not be strictly accurate.


  1. I like how coffee smells, but I actually don't like the taste of it. If I want a hot drink, I'll go for chocolate. But I think it's more of a caffeine thing for writers, because it's also a stereotype that we think something genius, must write it down, and stay up all night to work on it. In that case, I'll take a Dr. Pepper, because caffeine=awesome.

  2. Aah i guess u r right coffee n writers compliment each other....n outta this love i too wrote a tribute to the same on my blog

    MY CUP OF it in in ur leisure time as m sure u gonna like it...


  3. I don't think coffee is necessary to the creative process. You were creative before having coffee, right? I think it's more a product of how the older you get, the less sleep you get and the more artificial energy you need (caffeine).

    And btw, I loved that video. I think I'll just stick to tea, lol.

  4. That is funny stuff.

    I don't drink coffee, though. I'm pretty sensitive to the caffeine. When I was a teacher, I was the only non-coffee drinker on staff.

  5. Oh my gosh, that's really funny, lol :)

    I like coffee a lot!! I'm not sure if it's in the creative process, but it certainly is associated with writing. That might be why I like it haha.

  6. All drinks ARE created free and equal! I call myself a writer and only rarely have a coffee - not because I don't want to, but I really don't need the caffeine right now. Love Julian Smith - whenever anyone thinks there's something wrong with you, just say I ate a jellyfish!

  7. Hahahaha this is hilarious.

    I actually don't like coffee, which is strange, because I'm both a writer and a freshman in college. However, I'm absolutely in love with soy chai lattes. That's how I get my daily caffeine fix :).

    Good to meet you!

  8. haha!

    I never drink coffee. I have done so but the taste is quite strong so I'm not a regular drinker. I'll happily sniff the stuff though!
