Some British earl who lived in the end of XXVIII century was very famous of his game of chance liking.
He could play cards for several days without stop.

The name of earl was Sandwich.
When Dmitriy Shostakovich was at a party hosted by British Queen, there was served up a tea with lemon.
After a composer had a tea, he took out a lemon from the cup with the spoon and ate it.
The court was shocked, but not Queen. She imperturbably took her lemon from the cup and ate too.
The incident became a precedent.
Since that an etiquette allows to eat a lemon taken from the tea.
