Phew, no follow up post from Smithers about how he's looking for a vein for his concoction.

The intervention seems to have worked, and this crisis has bean squashed.
You saved him. He's in the custody of the Pumpkin Police now. No more Pumpkin Latte's for Smithy....

4 bucks for a few dozen cups worth of flavouring to my at home coffee. As good as the "real thing" from Starbucks? No. But good enough and definitely a better value s̶t̶o̶c̶k̶ coffee.

Smithers, here's my most recent morning go-to:

1 scoop whey (ON double chocolate)
1 heaping spoon of instant coffee (Aldi)
1 Splenda
1 TBL cream

Heat up the water maybe half as long as you usually would for a piping hot mug of coffee, or else the whey will clot up and be gross. This will be a lukewarm mug of delicious cafe mocha except that it has protein so your muscles don't fall off.
I hated all the things I had toiled for under the sun, because I must leave them to the one who comes after me. Who knows whether that person will be wise or foolish? Yet they will have control over all the fruit of my toil into which I have poured my effort and skill under the sun. . . Nothing is better for a man than to eat and drink and enjoy his work.

I like coffee. Why ruin a good cup o joe with whey? I mix my collagen protein (thanks Mark Leavy!) into my morning Metamucil (sugar free Kirkland). Since they both are kinda nasty, it all goes down fast and I can enjoy my coffee hot and delicious.

Lol if that was the actual flavour I'd be doubly enticed!

Reminds me of Richard Hammond's story about disappointing a little boy at the airport when he had to admit he wasn't Iron Man.

Smith, your favorite animal is featured on the homepage of wikipedia today. The U.S. page, anyway.
