Overheard at Starbucks...
Barista 1: Do you know how the Americano was invented? Americans in Italy in WWII were wimps.
Barista 2: You're saying American GIs in WWII were wimps? Really?
Barista 1: [Sheepishly] Well...they were coffee wimps.
(P.S. Pretty sure this tale of coffee drink origin is apocryphal, though.)
