Perky

So I'm at a super-crunchy cafe on the Ithaca Commons yesterday. I get a bowl of vegan chili and a piece of orange cake and a cup of coffee and I head upstairs to sit and eat and drink and finish reading the essay for my writing group, which is meeting later that night. At some point I look over at my cup of coffee and notice that the little cardboard sleeve (that keeps me from burning my hand) looks like this:

If I had had coffee in my mouth, I would have done a great spit take. First thought: "Since when did 'Gentlemen's Clubs' start advertising on coffee cup sleeves!?" [actually, first thought = "nice rack(s)"] Then I turned the cup around and saw this:


"Daily Grind," get it? Get it? Yeah. Cute. I especially love "U.S. Patent Pending." I know that when I'm buying a bra, the first thing I want to know is, "What's the patent status on this baby? Is it pending? 'Cause that's how I like my patents: pending." My boobs, however, should not be pending too much - not if I'm wearing a bra. Or so I imagine.

The bra on the right is cut from the same fabric as the dame's shirt in the previous post....

I so desperately want to comment on this, and yet . . . it leaves me speechless. Just, WTF? Must there be bra-only-clad women everywhere (like that weird hotel ad)? Does this sell bras? Coffee? Stain remover for the spit takes?

They're fully clothed... and then you pour the hot coffee in... and then, boy howdy, the ladies are in their underwear!
