It's all in how you define the term teapot.  You spill your tea into your
keyboard; that keyboard now both contains tea and heats it, since there are
electronics in there.  So your keyboard has become a teapot (assuming a very

who is in the mood for a little silliness on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon in

how lucky we are to have been born so late in human history.
