Why Is It Tea/Coffee "NATO" ??

#1
sorry if this is a re-post, had a quick look & found nothing.

does anyone actually know why a tea/coffee white with 2 sugars is known as "NATO" :?: :?: :?: :?:

not requiring the standard answer of "its nato standard". 8O 8O

want to know if there is more to it. :!: :!:

The explaination I heard was that everyone was in it, just like milk two sugars. Everyone has it that way.

I am a Warsaw Pact bloke myself. Tea, milk no sugar.

Not strictly related, but funny anyway. I have worked or had friends who have worked with the special needs folks who are 'independently living' in the community..... :roll: and they generally use sugar lumps instead of normal sugar coz they got sick of them making staff a cuppa with two TABLESPOONS of sugar!!! And because of PC crap they're not allowed to offend them in any way and have to drink it :lol:

Julie Andrews: "I would like no sugar in my milky tea thank you".

I'll get my coat.......

Thats all there was to it . 7.62mm Nato standard. White and two, Nato brew. Not black and stong like my women.

So, the no milk and no sugar has to be a famous black person who is flat-chested or castrated? No, Whoopi Goldberg was the nun in that film (so she's not with sugar). She is black nun/none.

me reckons it was to get rid of bromine so everyone used sugar to conteract the evil drug

I once worked with a bloke who when asked how he liked his brew said he'd have a Douglas. 'A Douglas?' i queried, to which he replied 'Douglas Bader - nay toes!'

Hey Bobos. I expect your "sorry" was directed at the posters in general, but, if you were apologising to ME, well thank you!! Because, as a blonde, female civvy, I don't expect such niceties.

I apologised becuse I forget Woopie Goldberg was a nun, therefore black and none for coffee. I did not apologise because of your sexuality or hair colour, but sorry anyway.

I suppose an adolf hitler was white with one ???????????

'Cos it always used to come from the cookhouse in a ferkin norwegian with the milk and sugar already added, so you had no choice (other than to decline).

Tea from a norgie whilst sat on the range tastes different to any other tea. Is it climatic conditions or the cookhouse 'special ingredient'?

NATO Means N.ice A.nd T.asty O.k usually used prior to smacking sprog about the head for making you brew that amazes how he got so many gnats to p!ss in one cup
But since the dictionary is added to by anyone who wants to it could be just his version.
