I'd hope the cost of this one fell below average!

I don't think you can put a price on a good cup of coffee.

I hope she had to assume the ceremonial high-visibility waistcoat and computer voice to deliver this one.

Unless you know or suspect something we don't about the noble Lord, Lord Brabazon, I fear you might be thinking of the wrong Peer.

It was a very womanly answer.

Would a more manly answer have been, "Sorry, I haven't got round to mending it yet"?

Or, "Where have you been hiding my screwdriver, woman?"

Incidentally, is this the same coffee machine that went crazy and killed everyone?

This is a whole other coffee machine. Maybe there has been a spate of "incidents" across the estate.

How strange. I also pictured a woman, but for no reason. Perhaps it was the "Tara" bit.

The "Lord Dykes" bit didn't help either.
