Another comic I suspect is drawn absolutely from life. Elvis vs. the teapot – place your bets!
Love the tea cozy!
Elvis is so adorable when he pouts!
Hmm… do I go ahead and add the teapot, or wait ’til it makes another appearance? The cuckoo clock… the fuzzy blanket… the haunted cookie jar…
At least in the Sunday strips Lupin is his old happy self…
I feel the same way about my wife’s teapot! Her Irish granny always insisted that water come to a full, rolling boil for tea, and she follows that tradition.
SUNDAY FUNDAYA place to tell us all some fun thing going on, a joke or story, anything that makes you smile!
That’s not a teapot. That’s a kettle. You boil the water in the kettle. You put tea leaves (or bags, in these degenerate days) into the pot. When the water in the kettle boils, you then pour it into the teapot to brew the tea.
The answer, Elvis, is “As many as The Woman can get hold of.” And that kettle is probably cursed as well.
I really don’t get the obsession with stove top kettles in the U.S.A. Other countries have this thing called ‘electricity’ that’s used for them. Nice to see Sunflower Elvis again.
Elvis looks so bedraggled when his poof is fading! A very dignified bedraggled, of course.
And what was wrong with 1939?
Oh, wait. September.
Is the woman pregnant a again?
Whistling kettles are pretty ingenious, IMO, but I wish there was a way to test them out before buying one. The one we have is very pleasing to the eye — bell-shaped body with a very round, high arched handle, but the whistle is your basic shrill-screamer, which I tolerate … My friend has a kettle whose whistle was designed to sound like a train whistle. The first time I heard it I was surprised at how melodious it was! The downside was its handle would get so hot that it’d give third degree burns to unsuspecting house guests …
I’m a tea drinker. Team Tea!
I think I’m going to quote Elvis in future when something gets on my nerves!
Elvis in full sunflower mode! Lupin being an anchorcat instead of a puke-rampaging idiot! The world is back to normal.
My great-grandmother had a chiming mantle clock. The kind you had to wind once a week, with mechanical chimes. I don’t think her cat ever got used to it.
That is not a teapot, that is a kettle. Who would make tea in a kettle?
I used to have a kettle with an outside painted like a black cat and the whistle was a canary. Loved it.
BTW, I’m a little kettle doesn’t work.
Proof that the earth is round: If it was flat, cats would have knocked everything off it by now.
That’s one smug looking kettle.
Party on, Burt!
Ah, time to drink a relaxing cup of tea while watching British people (fake) murdering each other.
We’re gonna party like it’s 1939! That’s awesome! Kinda the way I like to party (sips tea).
Georgia: The late Mr. Nelson would like a word with you.
Check out today’s 9 Chickweed Lane. Solange even makes an appearance. :-)
A little Gilbert and Sullivan: Titwillow
On the top of the stove a tea kettle did sit,
Singing Tea, oh Tea, oh Tea,
It’s getting uncomfortable on this stove, I admit
Surely the Woman is ready for tea,
But she’s nowhere in sight, oh where could she be?
And Elvis is getting so much madder at me!
Singing Tea, oh Tea, oh Tea.
Now I’m getting impatient as the cuckoo clock
As I sing Tea, oh Tea, oh Tea,
And Puck and Lupin are expressing their shock,
Oh Woman please get here quite soon I implore,
Or a dignified sunflower will happen, I’m sure,
She says it’s so relaxing, as a cup I pour,
Of Tea, oh Tea, oh Tea!
Careful with your swipe, swipes Elvis. You really don’t want to pull that down on yourself.
Elvis, I’d trade the clock that makes noise for the (evil) doll that doesn’t.
“Party! Party! Party!”
But what, if anything, has the Woman done with any of the previous outrages that Elvis has (in Siamese vocal tradition) submitted?
I have one of those too, but I must admit, there are days when I can’t bear the strident whistle of my tea-kettle; I microwave the mug of water instead.
I reiterate my observation on pussycat prima donnas …
Mr. Angry Fussy-Paws is back into form this morning.
Is the Woman pregger’s again?
That looks like a kettle holder in the last panel. I knit some and they are so useful! No as bulky as a pot holder, they fit perfectly around the kettle handle.
Such a beautiful Sunday. The “Sun” is out. There’s a gentle hiss, er breeze and Lupin is his old self, if only for one day.
elvis in the last panel lolololol d:P
I hope everyone is safe and sound after yesterday’s weather, we ended up with just a lot of wind and a few periods of heavy rain.
At least Elvis found something good about it.
Thats like the cat calling the kettle “pot”
This is where deafness is an advantage.
I think this exposes a marketing niche for a teakettle that whistles at frequencies only people can hear. :)
“I have a new outrage to submit”. LOVE it! I just may borrow this for work, ha ha.
That’s our household, except we’re in our 70s and not pretty.
If Lupin is deaf, how can he hear the whistle?
Final Update :(
Electric tea kettle – best thing ever.
All my fellow tea drinkers- did you know there is a satirical rap song about tea? I present to you “Cup of Brown Joy”. Like our beverage of choice, please enjoy responsibly. You know, whenever you need a good laugh.
We’ll file it with all the other outrages, Elvis.
Elvis, please wait till the relaxing cup of tea has been consumed. Outrages are easier to submit once this has happened.
Considering all the modern things that make noise, I’ll take the “old timey” things and their noise.
I like the expression on the tea pot when it whistles ‘tea’, very cute.
Just when I think Georgia cannot get any funnier, she does! Robin is correct when he says the “teapot” is really a kettle…trust an Aussie to point that out! We Yanks don’t really notice the difference.
good to see a happy Lupin for a change, but tomorrow is another day. Pucky looks a little concerned in panel 3, then there is Elvis all puffy, but he better be careful about swatting the teapot .
I can hardly stand loud noises.
☕️ wait is this emoji tea or coffee?
Looks like Elvis and the kettle are having a tearific fight.
It’s a kettle with a very cute little face.
OT: I am going to change my name to Mx Crazy Cat Person. So if you see that person commenting, you will know it is from me.
I have officially caught up with the comics and comment section! Woo hoo!!
Lol, I somehow became in charge of tea (and cocoa or cider for my dad) for myself, my mom, and my sister in the evenings, and I don’t let the water get all the way to a full, rolling boil for two reasons: 1) so it doesn’t make a horrible shriek, and 2) so it doesn’t take away the beneficial nutrients in the raw honey I use in our tea =)
Get with the 21st century! For years now I’ve made my tea by putting the teabags in the electric kettle, when it boils and switches itself off the tea is ready to pour. Simples!
