Hideous Office Mugs Hold Forth at Weekly Open Thread

Posted By on Fri, Apr 13, 2012 at 5:49 AM

Two long shelves at my office are loaded with mugs. Most are matched sets, but there are a lot of strays, too, including mugs from vendors, or gifts that co-workers brought back from vacations.


This one has a homespun saying on it — someone gave it to your grandparents at their office 35 years ago.

Mugged by fatuous sayings
  • Mugged by fatuous sayings

Next is one that someone might have thought was funny, but I'd be insulted if someone gave it for me. The full text is "You say I'm a bitch like it's a bad thing." Maybe someone bought it for herself.

Who would buy this for someone else?
  • Who would buy this for someone else?

Then there's this one — also someone's idea of funny, I guess:

Ah, such a knee-slapper.
  • Ah, such a knee-slapper.

Not that cute, not that funny. Really, no value at all, except that they do a good job of holding coffee. I guess that's why they were moved to the office cabinet.

Yeah, so that's my ice-breaker for the week. What's yours?
