    "Ponce's best" made me giggle. I like the title too >> http://youtu.be/yDvuLJk9Sjc

      I had to check the OED to figure out why you'd giggle at Ponce's Best. I wasn't even aware of that meaning. I have, however, considered making a drawing of the label for the tin, since I've mentioned it several times in the Argos-Fennec stories. I imagine it with an engraved image of a donkey holding a steaming cup in one hoof with the words "Best selling tea for donkey's years now" and another motto: "Guaranteed to contain no stable sweepings."
