“I like my coffee like my women. Without a penis” (anti-joke)

"I like my women like I like my coffee” is a meme that has been used on many images. “A Negro comedian pulled this one: ‘I like my coffee strong and black—the same way I like my women’” was cited in the New York (NY) Amsterdam News in July 1944. “Hot..and black, too” was an answer in 1973. “Hot and sweet” was cited in 1974. “Hot, sweet and black” was cited in 1994.

A sexual anti-joke was added in the 2000s. “Now call me crazy, but I like my coffee the same way I like my women—with no penis involved” was cited in January 2008. “I like my women like I like my coffee - with no penis” was posted on Twitter on March 15, 2009.

“I like my coffee like I like my women” joke variations include “I like my coffee like I like my women. I don’t like coffee,” “I like my coffee like I like my women. In a plastic cup.” “I like my women like I like my coffee. Ground up and in the freezer,” “I like my women like I like my coffee. Hot and on my lap” and “I like my women how I like my laptop. On my lap, turned on and virus free.”
