    Bah, humbug. That was in response to a right wing email
    that was going around
    asking people to send tea bags to Pres. Obama to represent a
    modern "Boston Tea
    Party" movement against taxation.

    One of my very conservative friends sent it to me a month or
    so ago.
    I consigned it to the trash.

    teapot....

    I thought the subject was about something else. As I found out, much to
    my surprise, "teabag" is a verb. I can't tell you what it means,
    because this is a family newsgroup.

    I'm betting it's not one with which sf is familiar, even though it's
    probably happening within a quarter-mile of where she is right now.

    Dan...are you sure you are in the right group? I have read comments
    here that would make a 60 year old hooker blush.

    In which dictionary? Oxford says it's a noun, and is written "tea bag" (two
    words).

    Are you saying that a teabag is the little sibling of a douchebag?

    From reading the article, and reading a bit between
    the lines, he apparently sent loose tea, not a tea bag.
    Still there was an over-reaction, but loose tea is
    not as obviously innocuous as a tea bag would be.
    Dried substance in an envelope sent to a member of congress
    is exactly how the anthrax incident occurred.
