Well done Andytug...the CST is on its way, as long as that provided by Sgt Mercy is not strained.

"Proof that the Army provides a koala tea service."


Just remember to support your right to arm bears!

The original pun (probably) came many years ago in the radio program "My Word". The end of each program consisted of a Frank Muir or Dennis Norden shaggy dog story based upon a famous saying or quote. I believe that Dennis Norden came up with a story about orphaned Koala bears that refused to drink a special eucalyptus tea prepared by Sister Mercy who was one of the nuns who were helping. Apparently they checked the recipe and found that it had not been prepared properly and "The Koala Tea of Mercy was not strained".

Thank you Wensleydale for taking the time to explain

Normally I can follow the tenuous links but this one baffled me

Ah yes! The Muir/Norden play on words made a wonderful radio programme.

Do you remember "You cannot have your kayak and heat it?" The improbable story was about an eskimo who lit a fire in the bottom of his canoe to get warm.

And the very long Pygmalion-like story which ended with the young lady not liking opera "which shows you can take a whore to culture but you can't make her think"


[IIRC the task was to use the word "horticulture"]
