Description

We've all been party to overlong teas, with tiresome guests who simply won't take a hint and crawl back under the palatial sod from which they emerged. You know the sort, Field Marshall Wotwttington of the Royal Aether Lancers who seems unable to discuss anything but his jolly, adventures with pernicious buffle ear during the fourteenth Bore War*.

Or there's the sanity sapping litanies of the Duchess Spokesnagglesmythe who is obliged to go on about any topic as long as it involves jumble sales, inspiring vicars of Hull, and gilt nose snoods. All the while they are soiling your linens,and devastating your supplies of Earl Grey and Jammy Dodgers.

"Please Mr. Tinplate, do you know of a legal and non-lethal way to pry these high society barnacles from my parlor furniture?" you ask in desperation.

Well, well, well! You've come to the right fellow! I can solve all of your problems with one little anomalous organism. What you need is the Travesty in a Teacup!

'But I generally don't allow Travesties in my parlor..." you say with a hint of trepidation in your voice, "...or Organisms!"

Pish Posh! The travesty is the last word in teatime vampire elimination. Just have the help replace the Duchess' tea with a travesty while she is lecturing on the Lower Bellington snood incident of 1862, and the fatal dangers of swine pearling. She'll be so caught up in her reveries that she won't notice the Homo cephalos waving at her from her cup until it's too late!

The resultant contagious panic will bring no end of fiendish glee to your heart as the stuffy sophisticates leap from their chairs, and leap for the door like startled gazelles. Who knew that a woman in 50lbs of petticoats, and a man with pernicious buffle ear could move so quickly! Jolly good!

Each travesty is a Homo cephalos anomaly bathing happily in its own china teacup. We'll even provide a matching saucer at no additional cost!

Each teacup is a unique piece of reclaimed fine china, so yours will be different from the one pictured here...but just as lovely.
