Tranquilizer Coffee

When visiting your favorite coffee bar, you have one of these after every few regular coffees. It doesn't actually counteract the caffeine---that would defeat the purpose of drinking coffee in the first place---but it does slow you down enough so that you can pay for subsequent coffees without scattering your change all over the floor.

       What, like a Prozacachinno?

       Or a Zoloft Latte.   

       How about a Wellbrutinspresso (aka Zybanspresso) for those who usually have a cigarette with their coffee but are seriously trying to quit?   

       (Don't knock it, egnor- tranqs and antidepressants can have similar effects.)

       Tranquilizers and antidepressants are different things...

       Then why not go natural - a valerian and chamomile latte may just do the trick - the only drawback would be a yellowish tint to the milk (yuck)

       From the movie 'L.A. Story'   

       "I'll have a half double decaffeinated half-caf, with a twist of lemon."   

       I just lifted this quote from imdb.com....Not sure if this is accurate or not, but it was something like that.

       Two Sanka Lattes, please. Tip of the Day: Ask for a Sanka Latte and watch the utterly befuddled expression, beligerence, arrogance and confusion in no certain order. I've done it on my annual Coffee At A Price visit for years. Remember to duck, that stuff's hot.

       Decaf coffee is like chat-room sex. Or maybe it's the other way around. (At any rate, I can't understand how those people can type well enough with one hand to keep a conversation going.)

       Presumably they put the coffee down when they type.

       You could call the product Slow Joe.
