Crop circles or coffee rings?

Crop circles mysteriously appeared near the town of Wilbur in eastern Washington, where the women are strong, the men are above average, and the kids have a lot of time on their hands, if you asked some people. This Seattle Times story, however, quoted sources that said otherwise.

A team from BLT Research Team, a Cambridge, Mass.-based group that investigates crop circles, came away believing it was the "real McCoy," according to a summary of its research on the group's Web site. Among the evidence: bent — not crimped — stalks and cavities blown out of the wheat stalks, interpreted to mean they had been pushed down by a pulse of energy.

To me, they look like coffee rings on a napkin. From left to right, it's so apparent that's an espresso demitasse, a short americano, a tall latte and a french press pot. Am I obsessed with finding a good cuppa coffee or what?
