There. I said it. All of you who can't handle coffee without dairy products and sweetener can go ahead and hate me now.

OK. I'll admit ignorance. In what way am I PWNED???

I won't concede that dairy products or sugar belong in my most beloved and sacred beverage.

you are "pwned" due to Oscar pointing out that it is YOU who are the old lady with your baking habits.

Pwned!

Oh, then I don't feel bad, since I'm not the least ashamed of baking. A slab of apple pie to go with a cup of black coffee? Mmmmm....

I actually thought that "says the baker" was some obscure literary or pop culture allusion. I googled it for hours. Well, I googled it once. Just found some dumb fairy tale about a mouse with it's tail bitten off. Sigh. Maybe I'm pwned after all.

I don't know if there is a connection, but there is a Hebrew proverb that goes somewhat like "The baker shouldn't comment on his dough".
