Madam, thank you, Colonel!


My dear lady, my most humble apologies.

In the hope that it may go some way towards relieving this most grievous and regrettable insult, may I offer a glimpse of my Easter project and most recent racing teapot, the redoubtable Snark Testing, Eradication And Management (Boojums Uncommonly Sighted) - STEAMBUS for short:




We used to have a programme called Robot Wars on UK television in which remote controlled creations were supposed to beat each other into iron fillings; most of them looked far less intimidating than your rather splendid creation...

Yours,
Miranda.

Yes, Miss Miranda; I remember it fondly (with Dave Lister from Red Dwarf, if I'm not mistaken).

Splendid Teapot Racing is much more genteel, and we aim to avoid damage to teapot and audience alike.  Mostly.  And STEAMBUS is nowhere near as fiece as he seems, unless you're a Snark.  Which I don't for a moment wish to suggest.

Teapot Sheepdog Trials looks like it may prove to be a different matter entirely.  It's a remarkable reflection on human nature that when two otherwise civilised people get ontrol of a racing teapot each with the objective of shoving sheep into an enclosure, the gloves really come off.

Steambonjed, welcome to Brass Goggles. We beg that you will share the fruits of your brewing concepts in due course.
