“My boss phoned to ask how large my coffee mug is. It was a big weigh cup call”

"Wake-up call” sounds a little bit like “weigh cup call,” so there are puns. “My GP rang to say that checking the heaviness of my coffee mug might solve the mystery of my shoulder pains. It was a real weigh cup call” was posted on Twitter by Paul Saxton on March 12, 2011. “Trying to sell a mug, someone just phoned asking how heavy it is. That was a real weigh cup call #pun” was posted on Twitter by Pablo Egglescobar on March 22, 2011.

My Doctor phoned to warn me that if I continue to use heavy coffee mugs it could be detrimental to my health. Bit of a weigh cup call that.

I was following an American recipe and made the mistake of using UK “cup” quantities instead of the US version. Lesson learned: Always measure by weight.
That was a weigh cup call.
