Schmuck Of The Week: Coffee Folk Is A Twitter Joke Thief
Recently, members of the Sprudge editorial team were reminiscing on the Schmuck of the Week , a semi-regular feature series from the early days of the site. It was full of articles of people putting foul things in coffee , a barista getting punched in the face for getting an order wrong, and other such schmucky activities, primarily as a vehicle to run increasingly groan-worthy headline puns . We ultimately moved on from the series for a variety of reasons, including: it was all a little mean; it was never very popular; we are older, wiser, better people now; and one time someone complained to us very sincerely about how it was preventing them from seeking gainful employment.
