    Maybe you can lead a horse to decaf but you can’t make him drink it? I don’t get it either.

    Is decaf like drinking from a mud puddle?

    I feel like Horace sees the difference between caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee quite extreme: decaf is like drinking out of a puddle.

    Oh, I thought Samson was just saying that decaf tasted like mud. (And other coffee doesn’t?)

    For many (except me, a tea drinker) coffee is that pick me up, like an oasis in the desert, hence the 2nd panel). Like hope or an oasis, in the “desert” of a long, drawn out day (forgive the pun, please….). So, if you’re searching for coffee for that lift, the fact that it won’t give that
    “pep” AND the taste of non-caffeinated coffee…it’s like winning the publisher’s clearinghouse prize of….. 25 cents….. the anti-climactic ending, if you will….
    … or it’s llike hoping that the sound of the ringing phone means that it’s that hottie calling to say they like you, but finding out it’s “just” uncle Fred…. a real letdown of hope….

    At least you get to control your own colors, unlike other strips on this site.

    On a side note, I actually know of someone who’s allergic to caffeine, INCLUDING chocolate… whenever they go shopping, they are the first to notice when stuff comes in a flavor that they can’t have, unless they want what almost seems to be an endless headache….

    Old joke:

    Husband: “This coffee tastes like mud!”

    Wife: “That’s strange; it was ground just this morning.”
