Logical Wigs of Tea

Wigs to keep your tea-pot warm

A good cup of tea needs to brew in a good tea-pot.

A good tea-pot needs to be kept warm.

Hair keeps the head warm.

Therefore a good tea-pot needs to wear a wig.

Fairly similar idea that has been about for a little while, a knitted garment that keeps pots cosy! [FussyPedant, Mar 21 2007]

This lady looks like she just put the Tea-Wig on by accident. [theleopard, Mar 21 2007]

       Teafro earns you a bun.

       Tea Cosy does not equal wig.   

       A wig can be combed, permed and styled.   

       A good tea-pot can have ears, and a nose to complement.   

       Therefore a good tea-pot needs a wig. Q.E.D.

       Personally, I would not trust the Quebec English Dictionary on such a matter.

       "logical wigs of tea". It has the rhythm of a nursery rhyme verse.

       How do you counter infestations?

       ddt of course

       Tea-cosies are widely known to exist (in the UK). Particularly fine example linked.
hippo, Mar 21 2007
  

       [hippo] everyone knows cosies are knitted, not plaited.
AbsintheWithoutLeave, Mar 21 2007
  

       ok then [hippo] find me one made of hair that looks like a wig.... waits while tea stews
xenzag, Mar 21 2007
  

       By the same token shouldn't we all be wearing tea cosies on our heads? QED etc.
theleopard, Mar 21 2007
  

       OK [xenzag] - mfd withdrawn
[AWL] That one *is* knitted!
hippo, Mar 21 2007
  

       [hippo] precisely my point - a hair cosy would be plaited, so the "widely known to exist" is not true and the now retracted [m-f-d] was bogus.
QED, bitch.

Maybe legal logical wigs of tea, made from horsehair, and reserved for members of the Bar?
AbsintheWithoutLeave, Mar 21 2007
  

       //QED, bitch// ...[AWL] always wondered why he was kicked out of the debating society...
hippo, Mar 21 2007
  

       Hell, [hippo]. That teacosy really *is* posh. It buttons up the back!   

       Tea and buns for the name.+   

       One problem I see with the actual idea is that wigs have a gap at the front for looking out of. Therefore, although bewigged on the back, top and sides, my teapot's face will be naked leading to untimely tea cooling.

       // By the same token shouldn't we all be wearing tea cosies on our heads? QED etc.   

       We do, they're called hats, though perhaps we should call them "head cosies" in this context. Although, once the tea is in our mouths, the hat might be argued to be cosying the tea too. The need for hats suggests that hair (at least human hair) is not that effective at insulating at a temperature difference of 70 degrees celsius plus. I would be more won over with "The logical sheepskin of tea"...   

       Nonetheless, a bun for the mental picture of a tea-pot for Cousin Itt
