Overheard in Brigid's Truck:

Brigid dropped by and she and Bobbi and I went out for lunch and shopping and suchlike...
RX: "...and there under that dome is where they rule the world!"

B: "What's that place called? 'Café du...'"

RX: "The signage looks like they want to be Starbucks."

B: "'Café du... du M-something'. I can't quite make it out."

Me: "Café du Merde?"

I heard the coffee tastes like *(@& though.

Made it home safely. Thanks for a fun day!

"I heard the coffee tastes like *(@& though."

That's called "truth in advertising" right there. ;)

The cut the grounds with chicory. It works about as well as that practical joke the Greeks play with alcoholic beverages and pine tar.

Ha Ha, the joke's on the Hellenes. Some of us Norwegiany types actually like Retsina and buy it on purpose, then drink it.

...We also tried "Cafe du Meh" on for size. Didn't have a strong feeling one way or the other about it.

I suspect it works better in its original habitat (where it works quite well indeed).

That's Cafe du Meemo up in Allisonville. It looks like a Starbucks because it used to be one.

Everytime I pass that weird dome with the word Meemo under it, I can't help but think it's a flying saucer and I expect to see Mork come out and say "Nannoo Nannoo"!

Cafe du Merde would be quite appropriate for a place that served Civet Coffee.
