Biblical Proof that Men Should Wash Up and make Tea!

A kind reader from Scotland provided a biblical follow up to my 'On Being a Man' post. It is a biblical proof text that real men should do the washing up!

"I will wipe Jerusalem as [a man] wipeth a dish, wiping [it], and turning [it] upside down."
2 Kings 21:13b (KJV)


Notice that the dish is washed and then placed on the draining board - good biblical principles for life, eh!

Ladies rejoice!

A colleague has also pointed out that it is biblical for men to make the cups of tea. For this we have the testimony of two witnesses
He-Brews, and
Te-man (this is where Edomite men brewed the cuppas)

Perhaps the Bible is more contemporary then we thought!
