“Why did the coffee get in trouble?"/"Because it was not tea.”

"Naughty” sounds like “not tea.” A coffee riddle is:

Q: Why did the coffee get in trouble?
A: Because it was not tea (naughty).


“Why did coffee get into trouble? Cause it was naughty and pretended to be tea” was posted on Twitter on March 4, 2012. “What is the most well behaved drink?"/"Tea because the others are not tea” is a similar riddle.
