WHEN THE FUCK DID PAUL BECOME THE FUNNIEST MEMBER OF THIS BAND?

Studley said...

Disappointed by the lack of saucer etiquette - where am I supposed to put your biscuity reward?

Morphy Richards must DIE!!! said...

Ha, we have exactly the same kettle.

It's terrible. Who thought putting the lid directly over the handle would be a good idea?! The lid is just awful, very hard to get off. Also after boiling, when pouring it spurts and goes everywhere. 'Tis for skilled kettle users only.

Also Paul, if you haven't had that kettle for very long, be warned. The filling meter is broken and after a while of use it starts to severly overboil. Ours vaporises about half it's water content before turning itself off. The overboiling may start occuring after several months of use (maybe more, as we use it very frequently)

DAMN YOU MORPHY RICHARDS AND YOUR CRAPPY QUALITY KETTLES WHICH ARE POORLY DESIGNED AND ALSO HAVE RELIABILITY ISSUES

PAUL NAYKROYD said...

Hahahah... it's my mum and dad's kettle. I'm hanging out down here for a while. But you're right about the lid, it's a pain in the cock.

(STUDLEY, NO SAUCER REQUIRED.)

JBJ said...

haha "naw thats bullshit"

eden! said...

where the fuck is the sugar?

Sarah said...

Sugar is a must.

Now we need to know how the rest of you like your tea. Along with biscuit preferences.

MYSELF:
i like earl grey, prepared exactly the same way as paul.

sugar? i'm sweet enough, thanks.

i just made a cup of tea in this fashion and it was severely below par. i mean really, paul, you should be ashamed of yourself.

in other news, we also have that kettle. except ours used to make a really annoying high pitched noise (out of the base) when it boiled, presumably to imitate a real stove-top kettle. that was until i discovered the switch underneath the base to turn it off.

paul, Morphy Richards must DIE!!!, do your kettles sport the same pointless function? please report back ASAP.

Lucy said...

You talk sense sir! I always say 'Builder's Brew' but now its definitely going to be 'American Tan'.

Also, 'Tender and unselfish' is exactly the way to treat a tea bag! (that had me pissing myself laughing)

Morphy Richards must DIE! had not said...

No our kettle doesn't do that. Ours is model no. 43139 (says on the kettle base).

Also "not too big, not too small"?
That mug is BLOODY HERRRRUUUUUGE. If it was any bigger it would be classified as a bucket. Do these supermugs/buckets really exist or are they just a figment of your imagination?

I have to side with Paul that this is the best way to prepare tea (but with 2 sugars)

Dale said...

No, no, no, no, no!

Milk goes in first! It's so much easier... you can use the cup to judge how much is the correct amount, then in with the water. Then, slosh the tea bag around until it's brown enough.

What if you've removed the tea bag, and go to pour the milk in, and get a bit overenthusiastic with it? The tea is pale & weak! Ruined.

Milk first Paul. try it.

Morphy Richards must DIE!!! angrily said...

Dale look, its really not that hard to pour milk into a mug slowly.The trick is to keep the angle between the vertical plane of the milk bottle and the x-axis as large as possible yet keeping the angle just below the critical angle where milk trickles out. The more milk in the milk bottle the larger the critical angle. It's as simple as that.

Sarah said...

Milk first, milk last... whatever. Makes no different to me.

My mother's kettle is like a rocket, literally. The sound effect pisses me off highly.

fi said...

my kettle doesn't make weird noises, but my toaster does. it emits a series of high pitched beeps when the toast is ready, it then proceeds to slowerly push the toast up, no pop. very annoying.

If he fell down at the end it would of been more funny.
