Mugs I'll Never Use
Here are some particularly ugly mugs I've acquired in my travels.
Pistol Dawn mug - It's an old mug, and an even older joke: "Member of the Pistol Club - Drink Till Midnight, Pistol Dawn." >> more
Mug - I almost made a cup of tea in it this morning, but couldn't
bring myself to drink what I like to call "The Other Brown Drink"
out of something that looks like a potty.>> more
Mug - Words udderly fail me here, and that's not a common occurrence.
I can't even call it a four-legged mug, because, well, the mug isn't
being supported by legs. >> more
Mug - This mug has a certain glow about it. It's also the
first mug in my collection for which I had the immediate reaction, "I'm
not drinking out of that!" >> more
a Mug - The main thing to remember is that the nostrils on
this pot are open, so it's not a mug. Really. It's actually an egg separator.
It's not a mug. Guess where the egg whites come out? >> more
Up Mug - What a lovely mug this is! I can't imagine what kind
of person would get any sort of titillation out of a mug that has a
person's rear end swinging from a metal hinge. >> more
Chum Charmers Mug - What the heck does that mean?
When I walked up to the counter to pay for this mug, I told the man
behind the counter, "I searched your entire store to find the most
tasteless thing you have, and I do believe that I have found it."
Shot Mug - What would you do if you were in Moscow in the coldest
months of the year? (Cue up the music to "Dr. Zhivago".) This
mug, possibly from the 1970s, may hold the answer. >> more
Beer Stein - This mug seems to embody the true spirit of Oktoberfest,
unbridled drunkenness. It depicts a man in lederhosen, still clutching
his beer stein, being hauled off by a wrecker. >> more
to Pee Beer Mug - This poorly made mug tries too hard to be
funny. The one gag "Went to P leave this drink alone" fails
because it's meaningless when its owner is actually drinking out of
it. >> more
Beer Mug - This is one of those head-scratching objects that
is made even more funny by the inscription on the bottom. You have to
wonder about the relationship between Connie and her "darling husband"
for this to be considered an appropriate gift. >> more
Beach One-Legged Man Mug - This one's icky times two. Or three
or four. The leg as a mug handle is pure kitsch. Like I want to grab
some strange guy's leg and put it near my mouth. Icky. >> more
Mug - What else can I say about this mug, except that I'm
really never going to drink out of this one. >> more
Got Smashed in Washington, D.C. Mug - Actually, according to
the label on the bottom, this mug was smashed in China. >> more
Up Mug - This must be a follow-up to the "Bottoms Up"
mug featured earlier in this presentation. I call it "Tops Up."
Breast Mug - I know what you're thinking. It's another tacky
breast mug. I think I have enough already, and yet I couldn't pass this
one up for three reasons. >> more
