Foodie Fail: A Spotty Tea Potty

Item: A toilet-shaped tea pot.

Spotted in: Selfridges (in London)

Tastes like: Thanks, I’ll have a coffee instead.

This item: Brings new meaning to the term, “a spot of tea.”

The band’s in London for a week, so I took a little stroll around Selfridges to try to find us an affordable coffeemaker. There were no single-cup coffee drips to be found in Selfridges (or anywhere in England I’ve been for that matter), but I sure found this unfortunate little terlet.  I’ve always labored under the impression that afternoon tea is a dignified and polite affair. But despite the fun gold detailing and the fussiness of the design, who wants to drink some warm brown liquid out of a piece of pottery like this one?

Here it is among all its less funny, but more appetizing friends…
