Earl Grey

onceupunatimepurplemany people assumed that Earl Grey tea got its name by being a favorite of that English earl.

In truth, the name originated in a small town in New South Wales named Earl Grey, where the citizens were getting concerned about the ability of their mayor to continue in office.

She was first elected in 1972, and she had run unopposed in every election since.

When her age began to hinder her from getting about, her constituents observed, “The Earl Grey mayor, she ain’t what she used to be.”
