ASK the LEAGUE with CRACKITUS POTTS

(music: scratchy old recording)

(fire crackling)

Good evening. Crackitus Potts here with the League of S.T.E.A.M.

And today's letter...

comes from Miss Emily Claire, from Paris!

Texas.

She writes: Dear Mr. Potts:

I like playing tea party with my dolly Clementine

and my horsie, Mr. Burns.

Sometimes we even pretend you and the League

are our special guests.

My goldfish is J.R., my dolly is you,

and my stuffed giraffe is Professor Jager.

I make my little brother play Zombie and serve us tea.

I like tea. Do you like tea, Mr. Potts?

What is your favorite tea?

Your faithful junior leaguer, Emily Claire, age 6.

Well, Emily, that's a fantastic question.

I love tea, and there's all sorts of teas!

Why, there's fine green teas from the Orient.

In fact, there's a really good yerba mate from Argentina, I believe.

Mrs. Potts thinks it tastes like horse manure, but I like it.

But I think my favorite tea

is the good old classic standby, Earl Grey.

But not just any Earl Grey.

No, a special Earl Grey.

The Earl Grey how Zombie makes it.

I don't know what he does, I don't know how he does it,

but-- ah, thank you, Zombie. It's excellent.

(fire crackles)

Mmm. That's a good tea.

(stamp sound)
