Coffeehouse observation No. 283 — A little off-color humor

As past visitors will recall, I have worked in the past as a writer and editor for. Some of the things said in a newsroom are pretty off color. Funny, but off color. So, on Facebook I clicked “Like” for Overheard in the Newsroom, which distributes some funny and off-the-wall things said in the newsroom. This one happened to include a reference to coffee.

Multimedia editor: “Iced coffee is like sex with a condom.”
