Hey, Lets' Get Together - Over Some of That 'Coffee' Everybody's Talking About

One of a trove of bizarre greeting cards etc I stumbled on at Yue Hwa, the Chinese dept. store in Mongkok. Seems there’s this refreshing brewed beverage called ‘coffee’, which is made from roasting coffee ‘beans’, grinding them into ‘grounds’ (obvious enough), and forcing boiling water through them in a newfangled contraption such as that pitcher-shaped device below (leave it to those Italians - such a clever people when they put their minds to it). Coffee is purported to have almost magical rejuvenating powers, and is quite the social lubricant. It’ll give us the perfect excuse to catch up! Honestly would you want to ‘get together’ with anyone who handed you this card? Or would you smile woodenly and slowly back away...
