“I like my women like I like my coffee. Hot and on my lap”

"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 coffee. Hot and on my lap” is a saying that is a jocular take on the 1994 McDonald’s hot coffee spill lawsuit. “I like my women same as I like my coffee...Very hot and on my lap” was posted to the newsgroup alt.slack on January 20, 2001.

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


Wikipedia: Liebeck v. McDonald’s Restaurants
Liebeck v. McDonald’s Restaurants, also known as the McDonald’s coffee case and the hot coffee lawsuit, was a 1994 product liability lawsuit that became a flashpoint in the debate in the United States over tort reform. A New Mexico civil jury awarded $2.86 million to plaintiff Stella Liebeck, a 79-year-old woman who suffered third-degree burns in her pelvic region when she accidentally spilled hot coffee in her lap after purchasing it from a McDonald’s restaurant. Liebeck was hospitalized for eight days while she underwent skin grafting, followed by two years of medical treatment.

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.”
