Cats and Monkeys

``Never ever grind DARK ROAST on 1, or cats and monkeys will breed together and take over the world.''

Someone just called me to ask what I meant by responding in the comments section below about cats and monkeys. I have no idea the origin of the phrase, but in my mind it's always come to signify "unnatural-ness." Jon Carroll, the venerable columnist from the San Francisco Chronicle, says it better than I can in an
old column I've had clipped for ages (and SFGate is kind enough to have archived.)
