“Hakuna Mimosa. It means it’s brunchtime”

"Hakuna Mimosa. It means it’s brunchtime"is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images. “Hakuna matata” is Swahili for “no worries.” The song “Hakuna Matata” was in the Disney animated movie The Lion King (1995).

“Hakuna Mavodka turned into Hakuna Mimosa. Why am I mixing up drink names with Hakuna Matata?” was posted on Twitter by Kidrauhlita on April 25, 2014. “Hakuna Mimosa. It means brunch time” was posted on Twitter by Kelci Lourido on January 31, 2016. “Hakuna #Mimosa. It means it’s #Brunch time” was posted on Twitter by VancouverUrbanWinery on February 6, 2016.

Other “Hakuna matata” jokes include “Hakuna Ma’Coffee. It means no worries. I’ll just drink coffee for the rest of the day,” “Hakuna Ma’Vodka. It means no memories” and “Hakuna Moscato. It means drink wine.” “What did Simba (The Lion King) order for brunch?"/"A tuna frittata” is a related joke.


Wikipedia: Hakuna matata
“Hakuna matata” is a Swahili phrase; translated, it roughly means “No worries”. It is formed by the words hakuna (there is not here) and matata (plural form of problem). The phrase has been popularized by its use in The Lion King (in which it is translated as “no worries” in a song named after the phrase), so that it is heard often at resorts, hotels, and other places appealing to the tourist trade. The phrase is in more common use in Zanzibar and Kenya. The phrase is uncommon among native speakers of Swahili in Tanzania, who prefer the phrase “hamna shida” in the north and “hamna tabu” in the south.

Wikipedia: Mimosa (cocktail)
A mimosa cocktail is composed of one part champagne (or other sparkling wine) and one part chilled citrus juice, usually orange juice unless otherwise specified. It is traditionally served in a tall champagne flute at brunch, at weddings, by the pint, or as part of first class service on some passenger railways and airlines.
