      The picture actually depicts what happened to me a week last Tuesday.

      Well, almost… I was balancing on eight cups of tea not nine, and the 9ft Tea Lady was actually a 3ft greasy spoon waitress from Rotherham.

    • carmen lyra

    • If I’m lucky enough to win this I’ll hang it up above the teapot and create a shrine to the tea goddess Camellia Sinensis!

      A: He drowned in his own tea pee.

      Lovely, would go a treat with my bedroom colour scheme! I’m fairly sure that the tea lady would fall over in real life though – that’s some very large boobies Al :-)

    • What’s the difference between a duck? One of it’s legs are both the same.

    • Fantastic illustration!

    • Deborah

      The brew man is just 10 cups short to bag the trolley dolly who’s just too bit for her boots!

    • Stevo

      “Lovely stuff” – not my words Jon, but the words of Funky Illustrator magazine. Can’t argue with that.
