Double Tea Potting
Imagine my delight when this wonderful statue came to visit last evening. It stands 20 inches high and was found in a dustbin. A genuine 1950's Bugs Bunny statue standing in the classic double teapot stance, hands rolled up and placed on hips.
As a younger monk I was pulled up for double tea potting while trying to get across a point to the head cook. There is also single tea potting, if the point being made is just a minor one. I was completely unaware of this stance and have since wondered if it helps get the point across more forcefully, or not. I have my doubts.
It was too good an opportunity to miss. A practical joke in the rabbit infested garden. Many of us saw the funny side...
