Tue Feb 9, 2010 11:32am EST
BERLIN (Reuters) – A thief in the German town of Hamelin robbed an amusement arcade by threatening the attendant with a cup of coffee, authorities said on Tuesday.
“He wasn’t going to pour coffee over her, he was going to hit her with the cup,” a spokesman for local police said.
Brandishing the steaming cup he had just ordered, the thief forced the 26-year-old to open the till and fled with cash.
Police would not say how much money he had taken from the attendant, who had been alone in the arcade. “We don’t want to encourage others to try this,” the spokesman said.

This is really funny. Mad TV presents “Coffee twins” Hope you enjoy it and have a laugh.
I love this cartoon. Its so true to life. Enjoy!
Starbucks is testing out alcoholic beverages, just not at its coffee shops. The company is testing out beer and wine along with live music in some stores in Seattle, that are not under the Starbucks brand. They are also hosting book and poetry readings. They are trying to get back to their roots.
Although the company that owns Starbucks will also own these stores, they will not bear the Starbucks name or logo. Just a neighborhood-inspired name that will appear also on bags of Starbucks coffee sold at the stores, though the bags will reportedly contain the same coffee as traditional Starbucks, according to the Seattle Times.
I found this video and thought it was hilarious. It deals with the addiction to coffee that we all have in only a way that “Scrubs” can do it. Make sure you watch the whole thing. The last part is the best. I hope this little laugh brightens up your Monday morning. Enjoy!
