The Sydney Sentinel is warning readers to limit themselves to the recommended serving of one cup of Sleepytime herbal tea after our entire team was wiped out by a particularly strong brew on the day of the Melbourne Cup.
“I woke up two weeks later on the kitchen floor,” one Sydney Sentinel reporter said. “For several hours afterwards, I thought I was a bear wearing a nightgown and hat.”
“I also had a dream about a bear in a nightgown and hat, but I’d rather not say anything else about it, other than that sleep was the last thing on his mind,” a picture editor said.
Drinkers of Sleepytime tea are advised to have their teabags lab tested or simply stick to one cup to avoid a two-week coma.
Ed’s note: the Sydney Sentinel may also have consumed alcohol, Valium and Oxycodone, but we are fairly sure the Sleepytime tea was to blame.
