Update: Teapot-Blowing Contest — Pictures

Yesterday I asked you, dear readers, to send pictures of yourself blowing into a teapot. I could not have imagined such a great response–the number of submissions was fantastic. And even though I offered $20 to the first three people who sent in their picture (congratulations to Touchcream, TheOrangeSquirrel, and Keaton Pepper), most of you told me the prize didn’t really matter because I gave them a good reason to have fun.

Some of you did it at home, and others, at work. And while some did a splendid and controlled execution of the feat, others let all hell loose and just blew in the thing as hard as they could. This probably had something to do with the type of teapot they were using, though.

Anyway, here are the results of our teapot-blowing contest, for your viewing pleasure.

  1. Lol, it's funny to see that everyone realized that such task would turn out to be really messy. Either they used simple towels or decided to do it in front of the toilet (that was very funny).

    Oh yeah, and it was nice to see some geek gals on the pics :)

  2. That was cool. Who knew that that original picture of the tea pot and stuff was real? And who knew a teapot could bring so many people so much joy! But now I am bored and going to go eat a pancake.

  4. I only see comment explosions like this on Microsoft/Apple posts. I sense a great idea for a regular feature. Some will get burnt out on it, but others will come.
    Now I’ve got that “I’m a little teapot” song stuck in my head. Thanks ever so much!

  7. Makes me wonder why nobody actually tried this with his/her MJ water pipe.

    Not advocating for drug use here though, but it’d look funny between all the teapots! :)

    Nice pics

  11. You can get tea-pots cheaply from second hand shops, for all those who don’t have one and want to try this out. I think I might be getting a few more so I don’t break the good one when I use this technique to have water fights in the bath!!

  15. Wow! Assuming that that is really, near-scalding tea in the pot, you have something that is
    1)unhygenic,
    2)dangerous to your lips, face and eyes,
    3)dangerous to those stupid enough to be around you, and 4)an almost guaranteed mess to clean up!

    If the trip to the emergency room was a bit more in the “definite” column, I would give it two stars. As it is, only 1.

    You’ve got a long way to go to beat Naked Flaming Porcupine Juggling…

  17. Heh, not something I would try, but I gotta admit, with cold liquid looks like it could be fun.

    BTW, Mortican, you’ve got the same tea set as me! lol! (Actually looks like it might spill *less* poured this way – that short spout is the bane of me!)

  19. Dutch Poem about Tea Pot Blowing:

    De nieuwste overgewaaide Britse rage
    Leuker als Mary Poppins nu op het internet en op BBC I TV

    heeft u dadelijk in deze December dagen familie en vrienden op bezoek en nemen ze u vaak in deze periode onverwachts te grazen

    Pak ze terug en begin een game Tea Pot blazen…

    voor spel regels kijk op google Tea Pot Blowing succes verzekerd en voor de eindeloos lijkende en aankomende “feestdagen” een grandioos idee !!!
