The Pink Teapot Rooms


There’s a new policy at the Pink Teapot Rooms. You can only gain admittance by membership of an affiliated society. Jasfoup takes his afternoon tea there daily. He has a membership in every party from the American Liberation Front to Zebra Pattern Recognition Guild and is aware that some of his associations are contradictory, such as the Laverstone Ladies’ Knitting and Satanist Society and the St Pity’s Prayers for Pulpits Fund. It doesn’t matter to him, for there are sinners in each of them, even Gay Pride, the pass her uses for the tea room. There’s a member in the Laverstone branch that isn’t gay at all but uses the affiliation to get discounts at Gap. There’s a sin, if ever there was one.

Shopping at Gap.

Definitely a sin. Naughty old Jasfoup. Hasn't he heard of ethical shopping? ;-)

Indeed!

He's referring to that report last October about Gap using sweat shop labour.
