“The early bird makes the coffee”

“The early bird catches the worm” is a proverb dating from at least the 17th century; it means that whoever does something first has the best chance of success. “The early bird makes the coffee” is a jocular line that has been illustrated.

“The early bird makes the coffee” was cited on Twitter on October 31, 2008.
