Following on from the Jury Duty and....idea

I thought something a bit less courty might help with divorce cases.

For example, a coffee shop, So Person A's lawyer would suggest that the strange sock under the bed would constitute double-espresso, while Person B's lawyer would say it barely rates an instant coffee, with UHT milk and so on.

Then the judge could contemplate the matter and decide on the grounds for divorce, fine or extra fine like for Turkish coffee.

       Damn, forgot to mention, in the UK, this would also save on barristas' fees.

       A strange sock under a halfbaker's bed has nothing to do with adultery, and everything to do with experimental mycoculture. Not that this is much comfort to the half-baker's other half.

       What pun in the title?   

       If you were to say "minus for the entire thing being contrived so that I could do the pun at the end" that would be more accurate. Do try and keep up.

       Shameless, perhaps; I will let the writers, re-writers, copy editors and poll testers of history decide that. In the mean time, here is a lovely steaming fresh bun for you [+] for an adequately distinctive adaptation of the original idea.   

       Oh and by the way, if the judge wanted to be exceptionally harsh he would decree that the loser has to swill down a grande latte. Damn poor excuse for a coffee product, that. (...This PUNishment, while unduly harsh, would only barely be exceeded by the loser slouching out of the coffee shop and being killed and eaten by the shop owners herd of civet cats. Life is not without it's ironic twists of fate...)
