With Wimbledon all finished and done with, we’re all back to being obsessed with football and The World Cup in particular.. and who can blame us? With many more people on the screen at one time, there’s much more chance that someone will lose their bap and give us some good old fashioned agro to watch.
So to fly in the face of more regular football commentaries and in an attempt to ’stick to what we know’ (that and we don’t want to be putting Adrian Chiles out of a job), we have chosen to discuss an alternative World Cup. “The World Cup of Tea” is therefore a purely fictional discussion on how various celebrities might or might not take their tea…it’s seriously high-brew stuff!
Milky milky – what sort of a person might drink this insipid slosh? – probably Amanda Holden or someone else from the wrong side of the judging table.
No Milk, No Sugar – the type of drink that only someone with real backbone could stomach – potentially and arguably the finest James Bond in the last 20 years – Daniel Craig?
Golden, White with one Sugar – a well-balanced decent sort of tea for a well-balanced, decent sort of person – definitely the post-ghurka triumphant Joanna Lumley
Builders’ Tea – the sort drunk by only the hardest of hard men– Ross Kemp grrr!
Organic Herbal Alternative – a sensitive drink for a sensitive chap – perhaps David Mitchell relaxing in Stephen Fry’s library after a Sunday afternoon spent escorting a group of elderly ladies around the Tate Modern.
