Get torqued … on caffeine, that is … with 'Workaholics' K-cups

Are you a member of K-Cup nation? Some take issue with the amount of waste the single-serve coffee pods leave behind, or their general lack of coffee quality, but there's no arguing they're damn convenient — especially in an office setting where no one wants to clean out the damn pot. Still, considering Blake, Ders and Adam's commitment to staying fresh, you gotta think, why a pre-ground coffee product? WELL STOP THINKING, DUMMY. You gotta stay fresh. K-cup manufacturer Keurig has been diligent about seeking out branding partnerships — you can buy Dunkin Donuts K-cups, Starbucks K-cups, Celestial Seasonings, Swiss Miss, even Cinnabon and Kahlùa — but this latest co-branding lunch is their weirdest yet. That's right: The stoner man-children of Comedy Central's Workaholics now offer K-cups in five different flavors, like Take It Sleazy light roast, Let’s Get Weird medium roast, Fully Torqued dark roast, Straight Grizzly honey-vanilla flav  oh, you know what? This is probably/maybe a hoax (I give it 50/50 odds) so I'm not gonna bother to rephrase the press release. Buy it here on Amazon (if you're a trusting sort ["Be the first to review this product!" yeah right]), or just watch new episodes on Comedy Central starting Jan. 22.
