USAGE

Simply require and use from your rackup file (e.g. config.ru):

require 'rubygems'
require 'teapot'

Your Rack application will now serve English Breakfast and respond with a 418 I'm a teapot if it receives any BREW or application/coffee-pot-command requests.

Hater of English Breakfast? You're in luck—just pass in your preferred brew.
