“Coffee! Because crack isn’t allowed in the workplace!”

"Coffee! Because crack isn’t allowed in the workplace!” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many gift items, such as posters and coffee mugs. The saying appears to have been cited in print since at least 2009.

“Coffee, because crack is bad for you” is a frequent variation that was cited on Twitter on September 20, 2013.
