That is gonna look so cool on a shelf and will really contrast the shapes of other mugs. Diversity rules! Thanks for giving us more of it, Chongolio!

I knew you had it.
Not also thanking the judges, but for Hanford and Munktiki for havin' the coconuts to do such a piece of art.
An instant classic.

yeeeaaaah. Great, I'm happy it won. Congratulations, and thanks to Hanford and Munktiki. This is gonna be a great piece of art. And that way, Shecky will remain the TC mug, this new design will be the bowl.

I'm gonna start savin' now, so when it does start comin' off da line, it won't be "too expensive" for this people! Great "outside of da box/mug" thinkin', Randy!

I got a call from Chongolio last night telling me that he won. This is awesome news. His design was, hands down, the winner from the beginning. Cheers to Randy for thinking "outside the box".

Speaking as one of the 3000 judges, I can truly say that this design caught my eye because of one thing...
So there you have it, Chongo.
Pandering does have its rewards.
It was one of my choices but I thought it might be too difficult to produce.
Many other great designs, as well - The Lemoai MUST be made.
It just must.

The unique and innovative design of your entry certainly caught my attention. It was fun being a judge for this contest, and I do hope that at least several of the many other mug designs will someday come to full 3-D life.
So, is someone going to design little tiny figurines of various Tiki Central Members? Then we could fill the Ohana Hut with good rum, and create a scale-sized Ohana Hut rum swimming pool for all of us to immerse ourselves in.
