    I expect Madame Teapot wanted to make quite sure he was never going to cause her any trouble, and has ensured that he stays forever in china - and I'm not talking about the country.....

  20. #420
    I first met Madame Teapot many years ago with the Four Tops in a Teahouse in China Town. I ordered green tea, but was green enough myself not to know that it should not be drunk with sugar. When at my request a bowl of sugar cubes was brought, Madam Teapot ran out of the teahouse screaming. How was I to know she had a terror of the tongs?

  21. #421

    As long as you're with westgrand & I you will never achieve adult status

  37. #437
    Arr&bee, I believe even the barges float upside down in that particular part of the Thames.....

    Have no worries about the health of 144man, or indeed myself. Our provisions and preserves are obtained from the same company renowned as purveyors to HM and her family, by appointment. ('by appointment' means never before 10am, and never after 5pm).

    Ms Moe (Superstar), stay right where you are. This new polaroid classic of Arr&bee is beginning to sound too much like a Keystone Cops movie - as, no doubt, will his next - a new asteroid classic, set on the Milky Way. It is supposed to be a drama, but 'horror' would be a far more appropriate description, especially for the Players involved in the production.
