    Default Camp Coffee

    Who remembers Camp Coffee?

    It's still available

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    My mother used to have some "to settle her stomach" after an evening meal - she couldn't put up with all this filter or Nescafe stuff, and she never drunk "the proper stuff" unless she was in a café somewhere in Skegness or Blackpool.

    I have this feeling that my thread about Crown Cup Coffee might have inspired this one...
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    There was some controversy a few years back that Asian shopkeepers refused to put it on their shelves because of the picture on the bottle's label - something that had been traditional for many years until then. It shown the Indian person as a servant, and some people thought it was racist, so they changed it to the design that you can see in the picture above.

    I saw a photoshopped one a few years ago, with one of them sitting on the other's lap, and called "Very Camp Coffee"! Can't find it now though.

    Thing is Claire, the original definition of the word 'Camp' was to go camping with a tent or caravan

    Similarly the word "Gay; the definition of 'Gay' is to be happy

    Haven't had it for years. I quite like it, because it's a different flavour.
    Bloke I used to work with liked it, and he'd ask me if I wanted a cup occasionally.
    Funnily enough we were only talking about it here a week or so ago.
