Everyone knows that a Death Star tea infuser should really only be used in a Sith mug. This is elementary.
However, this set also came with a TARDIS mug (with a lid!) that might have to come to work with me. I am the tea-drinker in our household.
I’m faced with one of those ultimate nerd questions. Does it defy some sort of interstellar law to use a Death Star teaball in a TARDIS mug? Some geeks say no – that the universes are far enough separated that it will not cause a cosmic cataclysm. Other geeks say simply “Don’t cross the streams!”
I’m still not sure.
We will have to see.
I’m still endlessly amused that the same brilliant gift-givers also gave me a commander’s com-badge, and Brett (in honor of his making paramedic) a medic’s. He can now say “Damn it, I’m a medic not a bricklayer” (or something like that).
