So according to @qikipedia on twitter, "In Britain in 1993, three people needed hospital treatment as a result of an accident with a tea-cosy."

Thinking, I'd respond with the quote in the subject line, I had a quick look on google to see who said it (turns out it was Billy Connelly. It does sound like the sort of thing he'd say.), and found this:



Available from Ringtons - £7.95

Would it be excessive to buy myself a third tea-cosy?

Which begs the question, what accident with a tea cosy would require hospital treatment?!

According to this article from the Scotsman:

Thirty-seven people were injured so seriously by the pot warmers in 1999 that they were admitted to hospital. Most of the injuries were caused by scalding, usually after an attempt to pick up a teapot by its cover rather than the handle, while others followed trips on cosies lying on slippery kitchen tiles or lino.

Death by Tea-Cosy
I was watching QI the other day, online, and it was an episode about dangerous things. It had a number about death by tea cosy, but I can't quite remember . . . hrmmm.

But apparently it IS possible.
