Aliens and Coffee Cups

Today I stumbled upon something. Its a little bit out there but bear with me. I think I have uncovered a deep secret that they don't want you to know about. Don't worry, I have not gone completely Flat Earther. But this is something I feel I have to share.

Have you noticed the ever increasing popularity of Take-Away coffees? It seems like everywhere you go these days increasing numbers of flaccid faced people are conducting their business whilst grimly clutching take away cups of coffee.

In fact the number of people not clinging grimly to a plastic topped cardboard cup is decreasing by the day.

Whats wrong with that? I mean everybody loves a coffee right? I must confess that I too am quite fond of the odd triple shot chocka mocka vente benty latte and find that I cannot begin my day without a good brown dosing.

So, you may ask again, what is wrong with that?

Well, I'm afraid that today I believe I have somewhat accidentally uncovered some kind of conspiracy. In fact a conspiracy which perhaps extends even beyond our sweet blue earth.

Yup, thats right. I have long suspected something was awry with the world and now have the evidence to show that someone or something is attempting to control us somehow via these take-away coffee cups for their own nefarious ends. But who and what led to this franky astounding conclusion?

Well as hard as it is to believe I am afraid that the answer is plain and simple

What? I hear you cry. Are you for real? What evidence do you have?

Well my non-coffee clutching friend. I have irrefutable evidence. Read on if you value the truth.

1495b207779-picsay_20170519185345419.jpg

There I was, in an elevator of a popular department store. There was a suspiciously pale chap with a suit standing beside me holding a coffee cup. As the doors closed he suddenly jolted forward and pressed the button to open them again. Almost as if prearranged, another pale man stepped in holding a similar coffee cup. The second coffee man looked at the first and without a word raised his cup in some kind of strange ritual acknowledgment. No words were exchanged.

Jings?! These two beings were communicating without words??

The elevator stopped and the second man stepped out. As we started to ascend once more I leapt forward and BLATTED the coffee cup from the first creatures hand.

Who are you? I barked. What are you?

He stared at me, eyes wide, mouth working as if trying to capture the sounds of our earthen tongue.

The lift pinged open at the next floor and he fled. I leaned forward and picked up his 'Coffee Cup'

It was empty

There you have it. What's that you say? This evidence is flimsy or circumstantial?

Pah, this is the 21st century sheeple, WAKE UP.

So there it is.

Incontrovertible proof of Aliens and something to do with coffee cups.

The missus says I have to go for a lie down now

Thank you for opening my newborn-kitten eyes about this shocking phenomenon of everyone's favorite brown liquid. Without people like you around, we bleating masses might get hoodwinked more often.

It's so true. I now have it as my life mission to open the eyes of everyone no matter the personal cost! :O)

So does that mean that all of us coffee drinkers are aliens? I wonder, seems like it could be changing ones DNA or something. But nah I still drink good plain old Black Coffee, I don't need all the extra stuff people use to make it taste different!

·

I wondered the very same after my fourth coffee in an hour and I started to feel decidedly odd

·
·
62
  ·  6 days ago

Uh oh, you may need to go and get checked out by your (Alien) doctor, and make sure your still human!

·
·
·
71

I can't go to the doctor anymore, he has shifty eyes!

73

I am glad some people have seen right through to the heart of the origin of the story!

Yes, sometimes the very improbable is the only solution...

So, @meesterboom, you should condense this fine story down to two sentences and enter @prufarchy's contest:

In the US if it's not a coffee cup, it's a water bottle. Adult pacifiers?

Adult pacifiers, you have hit the nail on the head. Darn, that puts paid to my alien theory ;0)

What?! Coffee can be found outside of takeaway cups?! What tomfoolery is this?? And... what are these... words you speak of? You speak as if transmitting them using our mouths is a normal thing haha! Dude, you're too funny haha Our mouth is only used for eating silly.. Sounds cannot be routed through it, that's purely science fiction. Anyway, I just sent you a warm "shoulder tap" thought for the hilarious story. Now I shall drink brown gold from the teat of the espresso machine.

Thank you for posting @meesterboom.

Lovely illustration and story.

bleujay is aware that if life is not bizarre enough we tend to make things up but then sometimes you stumble across news and have to report it and bleujjay is afraid this is case here. Now you have yourself a title the Resident Sleuth........ Congratulations.

Wishing you and yours all the best. Cheers.

I like that title very much. I shall endeavour to live up to it! Cheers @bleujay!

LOL so that's what that is all about. Strange thing here is guys on motorcycles when they are approaching each other, both lower their left arms in a salute. I thought that maybe this was a throwback to medieval times, but now I am SURE it has to do with the bloody aliens as well!!!!!!!!!

·
71

I bet it is, I mean how do they even know to do it!! Lol!

Coffee has caffeine which is not good for the body. Forget decaffeinted coffee.
