“Just call me the little engine that said, ‘OK, but I need some coffee first‘“

"Just call me the little engine that said, ‘OK, but I need some coffee first’” is a jocular work saying that has been printed on many images. The Little Engine That Could is an American folktale to teach children the value of optimism and hard work.

Real life, however, sometimes requires coffee. “Just call me the little engine that said ‘ok, but I need some coffee first’” was posted on Twitter by Bruno Pieroni on May 29, 2014.


Wikipedia: The Little Engine That Could
The Little Engine That Could is an American folktale (existing in the form of several illustrated children’s books and films) that became widely known in the United States after publication in 1930 by Platt & Munk. The story is used to teach children the value of optimism and hard work. Based on a 2007 online poll, the National Education Association listed the book as one of its “Teachers’ Top 100 Books for Children”. A 1949 recording of the story was inducted to the National Recording Registry in 2009.
