A FLAWLESS cup of tea has made further tea-making redundant, it has been claimed.
Forklift driver Roy Hobbs was reduced to tears after making the hot drink that delivered on all levels.
He said: “As soon as it touched my lips I was struck by the revelation that true beauty can exist in an imperfect world.
“I cannot recall doing anything different to normal – cup, bag, milk, water, sugar. But somehow I just did it all that vital fraction better.”
Scientist Susan Traherne said: “Unfortunately Roy drank most of the tea before alerting authorities, however tests on the cold dregs have revealed they are like the brown milky tears of Christ.
“It may prove Plato’s theory of Perfect Forms, where the absolute ideal of everything has the potential to exist.
“As an accompaniment to the perfect form of a brew we will need the perfect form for Hob Nobs which I’ve long suspected are, in fact, Hob Nobs.”
Office worker Joanne Kramer said: “Another dream crushed, now I have to switch to coffee which gives me a rash.”
