In an impressive display of utter contempt for Perth’s world class specialty coffee scene, a BAR100 tutor was seen today getting a coffee from a vending machine not ten metres from Bang Bang Specialty Coffee Vendors.
Local garbage person and all-round human disaster, Brian Fleming, was taking a break from grading the most pointless unit the world has ever seen when he offended public decency.
Experts have suggested several possible explanations for Fleming’s disgusting caffeine habits.
Sociologist Amanda Jones suggested cultural differences; ‘It could be that he’s from Geraldton – good coffee is a socialised response to mornings. What else could you expect? His hometown only has one entry on Beanhunter!’
Biologist Ashley Thomas favours the bin chicken theory: ‘I think it’s more likely that he has some White Ibis in his ancestry. His beverage choices could be a throwback to the family’s bin juice drinking days.
Charlie, Bang Bang’s regular barista, displayed his characteristic chillness about the whole shit sandwich. Not even this blatant insult could harsh his vibe.
‘To be honest it was kind of impressive; everyone could see and they were judging. You gotta admire the balls on the guy.’
When asked why Murdoch even has coffee vending machines, a spokesperson for the university suggested the machines are actually bait.
‘There’s an assumption that we’re providing more options, but we’re actually just allowing for natural selection to take it’s course.’
‘If someone’s not willing to wait in line for proper coffee, let them have their turd smoothie. They don’t deserve Bang Bang and they don’t deserve happiness.’
When asked for comment, Bang Bang’s owner had this to offer;
‘Look to be honest I think you all just need to chill out. I don’t often say this, but it’s just coffee.’
Editors note: Geraldton has several excellent cafés, and this article is in no way a reflection on them. Don’t @ me.
