Photo du Jour: Coffee Crybaby – Oberammergau, Germany

A bakery storefront in Oberammergau, Germany

An image of a grumpy baby adorns the 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!

      1. 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. :-)

      1. Well my start of work day could be any day, and I’m normally pretty excited to be going.

    1. 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.

  1. 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! :-)

      1. 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? :)
