    “That’s nice, but I was concerned about you pouring tea before it was properly steeped.”

    Good morning™, everyone!

    Okay, here’s the answer to “how they did it,” although anyone reading the comments here already knew this. We have two days left to wrap everything up. This is the problem with publishing a “solve the mystery” story in daily installments.

    ~ Good morning™, Shocking Uncoveries !

    Someone “let the cat right outa the baaag !”  I bet Palmer’s palms are clammy while he sweats rivers. “This is so embarrasking !”  Now the hard copy only readers get what happened.

    Aha! The old multiple hole trick! He must be a distant relative of Arnold Palmer!

    Okay, so ALL the teapots they gave the deli had poison in them? And he just left the poison in them for the police to find? All the action – and logic – as the X. Libris case. Waiter, check please.

    Looks like Palmer has a reservation at the nearby maximum security penal institution……

    Congratulations to @Darth Thespian for spotting the Assassin’s Teapot first. 3 days ago, I might add.

    Nice illustration in panel 3 as to how it works..

    What’s more egregious; This story or the handling of Shelley’s retirement by TCA?

    Oh it suuuure works well in this restaurant scene because you is knows which hole which random customer is going to closes while pouring tea. What a utterribly preposteridiculudicrous plot with humonginormenormous plot holes.

    1-DT: What say we have a Teapot Race?

    2-…I read about it in a Detectives Guide from 1928. It’s a bit out of date what with its recommendation to first arrest anyone whose name ends in a vowel and second, to make sure they’re not carrying a Tommy Gun. Anyway…

    3-…The first one to fill their teacup wins. PERPSKI: Wins what? DT: Uh…a cup of tea I guess. A book about crime isn’t going to promote gambling ya know. SAM: I’LL PLAY!

    Tomorrow, Palmer screams “You’ll never take me alive!!”, and swallows his poison-coated monocle

    The guy is a little flaky. They just left the chamber full of poison? Sam’s dad didn’t rinse it out before he used it?

    With the double spout wouldn’t there be a risk of some poisoned tea getting into the non-poisoned beverage? Does the perpetrator wait to pour the poison after the others (non-targeted people) have been served?

    These days I believe cesium is the poison of choice.

    This is, in fact, the mechanism for more than one vintage magic trick. Back when I was still doing stage magic many decades ago, I had a couple of versions of the water lota illusion.
