Not to sound like a broken record... but you should write this song! :)

Maybe. :) This one doesn't "sing" to me like the last one did, though. (I've actually already started working on the "military alphabet" song.)

No, I suppose it's not as good of a song. I mean, yeah there's that song about the coffee bean, and I guess Tea doesn't quite have the same following. Well, good puns though! :)

Some of those sounds like they could be Adagio collections...

I'll have to look at their website, then. They sound fun. ;-)

Adagio lets their tea blenders name their blends, and they can get very silly. I particularly like the one who names all her teas after Tori Amos songs.

Thank you for a delightful series of groaners. (seriously. I do like bad puns!)

See, you could probably submit these to OPI Nail Polish as names, and there's a good chance they'd want them too.

Because they name their polishes things like I'm Not Really A Waitress, Yoga-ta Get This Blue, My Other Dog Sled Is A Hybrid, Don't Bossa-Nova Me Around, Eurso Euro, Taupe-less Beach, and Pink Before You Leap.

Those are pretty awesome. Do they pay anything?

I am unsure, but inquiring with them about it certainly wouldn't be a bad idea. I can already imagine that Mr. Green in the Dining Room with a Teapot would be a lovely shade of green with a touch of olive to it and possibly a very faint grey shimmer. And it would look great as a satin finish instead of a shiny one.

Er.

No, no I don't think about this sort of thing often. No. Not at all.
