No, Not Bourbon and Coffee. Bourbon Coffee.
I swear that this is exactly what the home page blurb for Caffè Borbone has up in English:
Stranger than the mistakes, intentional and unintentional, is the picture in the ad. I’m not sure that this is really Charles III, the benevolent and capable first king of the Bourbon dynasty. It looks rather like his son, the moronoid Ferdinand—the Lout King, King Big Nose. He stares out at you from the billboard next to the filling station, holds up his cup of Caffè Borbone and asks, “And you?—What do you drink?” Actually, if he were around to see this, he’d get a kick out of it. This was the monarch who used to wander down to the harbor and help the fisherman sell their wares after the morning’s catch. Now he’s selling coffee. If, on the other hand, it really is his father, the dignified and very royal Charles III—well, he would not be amused.
