“I like my women how I like my laptop. On my lap, turned on and virus free”

"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.

“I like my women like I like my laptop; thin, sleek and on my lap.  with no viruses”—the same form as the coffee meme, but without coffee—was posted on Twitter on March 27, 2011. “I like my women like I like my new ThinkPad… On my lap, turned on and without any viruses” was posted on Twitter on August 1, 2012.  The one-line “laptop/computer” saying has been printed on several images.

“I like my coffee like I like my women” joke variations include “I like my coffee like my women. Without a penis,” “I like my coffee like I like my women. I don’t like coffee,” “I like my women like I like my coffee. Ground up and in the freezer,” “I like my coffee like I like my women. In a plastic cup” and “I like my women like I like my coffee. Hot and on my lap.”


29 July 1944, New York (NY) Amsterdam News, “Belittling Jokes Choke Minorities” by Abe Hill, pg. 8B, col. 1:
A Negro comedian pulled this one: “I like my coffee strong and black—the same way I like my women.”

12 May 1973, Journal and Guide (Norfolk, VA), “I Like My Coffee Like I Like My Women...,” pg. 10, col. 5:
“Madam,’ he said, ‘our coffee is cold. I like my coffee like I like my women—Hot!’

“‘Yes Sir,’ she replied with a grin. ‘And Black, too?’”

Part of the coffee ritual is forcing oneself to become inured to comments like: “Coffee, tea, or you7 “ or “I like my coffee like my women - hot and sweet.”
