Puzzle Description:

grounds keeper

#1: Aurelian Ginkgo (AurelianGinkgo) on Feb 13, 2020 [SPOILER]

So... I see a pot of coffee on the right, but the left is not so clear. Could someone clarify what that is? I guess it's indicating someone keeping the (coffee) grounds?

Emptying them out into a big pile of grounds.

Just keeping his (or her) coffee grounds. :) A strange hobby, indeed.

Ugh, it must stink.

And perhaps a pun as well ... a grounds keeper in this image versus a groundskeeper in a parkland??
#7: Kristen Coolman (kristen) on Feb 15, 2020 [SPOILER]
Yep, it's a literal mis-definition of groundskeeper :)

man, Brian...this coffee tastes like dirt!

"well, yeah...it was just 'ground' this morning" ;)

I love comment #8. Too funny, Kurt.

I do like it, but think it would convey its meaning better if the coffee pot were on the left...

And for some reason, the hand and dropping grounds strongly suggest a partial map/sculpture of Mexico and Southern CA, which would not be as strong. (or is it just me?) if it were flipped so the hand is coming from the right ..
