Reckon this guy is one sandwich short of a picnic. Rash vests should be worn on the inside, tea should be drunk back on dry land and paddles should only be used for spanking. Thems the rules innit.

I bet that the experience in Japan was gurt lush. But I can't break a habit of a lifetime, so does that make me a rebel? Oh OK I will, no I've changed my mind again, the mug stays, even if it means that I don't get my prize. Now I'm gutted!!

I seem quite happy to guzzle down stewed coffee from my flask after a couple of hours flailing around in the water, I will even drink that crappy liquid they claim is coffee from vending machines. But a nice cup of tea is not something I am willing to compromise on. I had the rare privilege of sitting in on a traditional tea ceremony in Japan many years ago, now those guys set the bar for proper tea drinking rituals. Imagine how your teabag dunking shenanigans would have gone down there. P.S. I’m holding a mug amnesty for you. Get yourself a nice china cup. The honeys from the W.I. are willing to knit you a crotched doily as a reward to you if you are willing to curb your teabag-dunking-in-a-mug routine.

Oh VP the tears are rolling down my face, tears of laughter that is. I think that I will have to take lessons on the correct proceedure in the art tea making, as I just shove a teabag in a mug and jobs done. But I have to say that you should NEVER dunk anything in your cup as that is bad manners and just plain dirty. I have got this mental image of you sat sedately sat in a circle, with a cup of tea in one hand (china of course) and a biscuit in the other, talking about the next thing you are going to knit at the forthcoming jam and Jerusalem meeting. Oh no the tears are starting again.

P.S. The jury is still out on whether a tea cosy can double up as a hat for comic effect…It didn’t go down too well at the W.I. Coffee Morning but I’ll keep you posted.

Ok Dudette, may be I’m being a bit strict. I am willing to concede that the rash vest and paddle ruling are minor offences and we can put that down to personal choice but tea….oh no….no sir…Tea drinking is a national institution. To some, it is more sacred than Holy communion, and its correct procedure should be adhered too both on land and at sea. I will take it for granted you brew your tea in a pot (my vessel of choice has an ornate floral design). From there it is decanted into a fine china cup (with saucer) and placed on a crocheted doily. It is of course considered bad form to serve a cup of tea without at least a modest selection of biscuits. Digestive or Hobnobs are my preferred tools for dunking (however I find Battenburg cake or fondant fancies add a touch of class when you are entertaining the ladies from the W.I.). So yes, some rules can be broken Dudette, but don’t mess with your cultural heritage, and keep your grubby little fingers off my Ginger Nuts!

Will need to see the sequence to confirm this one. I can only see one lump, but then wetsuits usually give me a bit of partial ‘tuck-back’ in the plums department. Best to give him the benefit of the doubt hey DiDs.

Great shot, don't think that I could ever do that in a month of Sundays. It's even better knowing that the guys are doing it for charity.
