People, People! We must stop this craziness of putting stupid stuff in our morning coffee. The latest "dumb thing" - avocado lattes.

According to an article in USA Today, there's a coffee shop in Australia that's now offering its customers an avocado latte.

My question is what caused society to cross that imaginary line and mess with our sacred cup of morning Java? When did having a cup of plain black coffee not become enough?

I actually blame the dairy industry for starting all this craziness (not really, but for the sake of the article I'm going to lay blame at their feet).

What started out as putting a simple shot of cream or milk in your cup has since turned into the creation of names of coffees that I can't even pronounce.

And my wife and daughter have bought in hook-line-and-sinker. Whenever we go out for coffee I just have to laugh. I don't even think they know what they're ordering.

And then it comes time for me to place my order - I'll have one large dark roast coffee please. No sugar, no cream - straight black.

The only time I'll mix anything with my coffee is when I'm a guest at a Lutheran Church. Ever heard of Lutheran Church Basement Egg Coffee? That's the only time.

I wonder what the next "big thing" will be. Bacon?

Actually, now that I think about it, a few crumbles of crispy bacon may actually taste good in coffee.

I'll get back to you and let you know how it tastes.
