Grumpy baby coffee advertisement by German bakery

A grumpy baby adorns a wall of a bakery in Oberammergau, Germany, enticing customers with the establishment’s promise of a tasty cup of joe. The poster reads: “Still tired? Here, you’ll find really good coffee.”

A happy Monday to all!

    • How can one resist with such great advertising? We sent this bakery streetscape to our friends, who are new parents and probably needing some coffee to get through sleepy days. :)

  1. Good humor always gets the best results! Walking and looking for funny things in life is my favorite way to photograph, as it is spontaneous.

      • I can relate. There are rumors that I can occasionally be less then pleasant in the morning before my coffee infusion. But they are of course only rumors. :-)

      • Thanks to my reader, Fotoeins, I just learned a new German word that might describe your rumored self, if ever in a foul morning mood – ‘Stinksauer.’ :)

    • That doesn’t surprise me since Oberammergau is such a small spot! I’m constantly amazed by how we bump into the same people here in a given day. Everyone knows everyone – just like a sitcom.

  2. My German side/voice immediately went: Gibt’s auch Stinkcaffee? Ich bin doch schon wach! (Is there also stinky coffee? I’m awake! I’m awake!)

    Great photo catch! :-)

    • Thank you, Fotoeins. I must confess, I don’t get the reference to stinky coffee. That’s likely because I’m out of touch with American or German pop culture. :) Please elaborate!

      • The look on the baby’s face can be described in German as “Stinksauer”. The adjective can also be applied to someone in a foul mood, and one can describe them as being “stinksauer”. That brought me to what I wrote above: can a special kind of coffee put one in a foul mood? :)
