Diesel Sweeties "Fucking Coffee" mug

R. Stevens of Diesel Sweeties sent me one of these coffee mugs. When I finally stopped laughing, like 6 hours later, I poured some coffee into it and it was officially christened as my favorite coffee mug ever of my entire life. Tons more wonderful stuff, perfect for holiday gift giving, in the Diesel Sweeties online store. [instagram link]

  1. I walked into the kitchen just now, and my lovely wife was hunched over the coffeemaker, brandishing a knife.

  2. Noticing the two Ls in the all caps bottom sentence are lower case…

    [EDIT]

    Dean beat me to it…

  3. You shouldn’t be proud of being addicted to coffee. In doing so you join ranks with the people who think they’re special because they can withstand the various pains of eating really spicy food. And children who eat worms.

  4. You know, there are people in this world with chronic ailments, which, though relatively “minor” compared to, say, cancer, also deny those people various luxuries of “normal” life. Like coffee. Posting things like this ruthlessly teases those people to no end.

    Just saying.

    Also, I don’t get the joke.

    1. Oh I agree, Boing Boing shouldn’t post a photo of a coffee mug with humorous text on it, because it is really offensive to people that can’t drink coffee. They should also never cover stories about gadgets that some people may not be able to afford, because that’s just rubbing their face in their poverty. Also stories about events in places where people can’t get to, that always upsets me because I’d like to be at those events.

      Oh and I don’t want to see any more stories on people that are sensitive to mundane stuff like slogans on coffee cups because it makes me feel bad about how I judge those people as overly sensitive.

          1. No. See the issue here, is that sitting down and reading a book are not mutually exclusive actions. However both shutting up, and explaining the joke are as you can see, at odds as the direction of the first prohibits the second.

    2. why you choose to take everything so serious? its not like she is going into hospitals and telling that joke to patients of cancer. just chill man.

  5. I was just reading Henry Rollins “Get In The Van”, his diary of 5 years on tour with Black Flag, and you can pinpoint where and when he became a “coffee achiever”: he’s in a coffee shop in Madison WI, and is amazed that the shop only serves coffee, and fancy tasty coffee at that (“Man this coffee is righteous!” he exclaims.)  A year later when the Flag tours through Wisconsin again he hits up the same shop, orders a whole pot of coffee and when the waitress asks “How many cups with that?” he says “one”. . . she gives him a look and replies “have fun.”

  6. Because nothing says “imaginatively cute and clever” like printing profanity on a T-shirt or coffee mug.

    1. Well, when a person and coffee really love each other, and they decide that they want to show their love in a physical way…

    2. It is common for protesters in the U.S. to do a chant like this–
      Leader: What do we want?
      Protesters: Justice! (or Equality, or whatever that protest is about)
      Leader: When do we want it?
      Protesters: Now!

      This mug makes a joke about people who love coffee so much that they are violent without it.
      Leader: What do we want?
      Protesters: Coffee!
      Leader: When do we want it?
      Protesters (wanting coffee NOW! No time for chanting!): I’ll fucking cut/stab/kill you!

      I hope that helps. :)

  7. The call and response part of this interests me. Since I have been a fan of ‘Buckaroo Bansai…’ and have friends who are as well, the related “Where are we going?” followed by “When are we going?” got a lot of milage.

    But, seeing the same ‘straight answer’ then ‘humorous answer’, makes me wonder how far back does this go?  What are some other examples of it?

    Any happy mutants in the know on this one?
