“Coffee! If you’re not shaking, you need another cup”

"Coffee! If you’re not shaking, you need another cup” is a jocular coffee saying that has been printed on many images. “COFFEE! if your not shaking....you need another cup!” was posted on Twitter by Casey Todd on October 7, 2009. The saying probably comes from an image.

A second sign reads, “Coffee! If you’re not shaking, you need another cup.” Who am I to disagree? Time for cup No. 2.

Oct. 09—I knew we were in the right place when I noticed the kitschy sign, above the pie case and the Arco coffeemaker, that says, “Coffee: If you’re not shaking, you need another cup.”
