“Decaf only works if you throw it on people”

Many coffee drinkers despise decaf. “Decaf only works if you throw it on people (for amusement)” is a jocular one-line saying that has been printed on many images. The saying was posted on Twitter on July 4, 2013.


Wikipedia: Decaffeination
Decaffeination is the removal of caffeine from coffee beans, cocoa, tea leaves, and other caffeine-containing materials. While soft drinks which do not use caffeine as an ingredient are sometimes described as “decaffeinated”, they are better termed “non-caffeinated” because decaffeinated implies that there was caffeine present at one point in time. Decaffeinated drinks contain typically 1–2% of the original caffeine content, and sometimes as much as 20%. Decaffeinated products are commonly termed decaf.
