Perhaps "jugs" would be appropriate?

Then you could say, "nice jugs!"

Excuse my ignorance, Woody but who is Bob Dobb?

Cheers,

Arty

Then you could say, "nice jugs." Or maybe, "wow, those jugs are huge!"

Sorry, just couldn't help myself.

Yep, it's that Bob Dobbs, (looking rather old and knackered these days judging by TurboGod's photo) from the Church of the Subgenius. Tiki Bob and "Bob" have the same ever-present, confident smile. Perhaps they are related?

What's the quality of finish on the
Tipsy Bob mugs. I ordered one just before they quickly sold out.
Maybe a review of the Tipsy Bob mug might be in order? Scale of 1-10.

Tipsy Bob review:

First, Bosko Inc. ships quickly and packages their items well. That's something I appreciate, seeing I do a decent amount of Ebay type bid-ness. Shipping costs are kept pretty low too. Kudos.

As already stated, this mug is pretty large, much bigger than we'd expected, yet easy to hold in one hand given the "3-D nooks and crannies" nature of the design. Overall it is right in line with Bosko's past ceramic work. I always considered his stuff more "primitive" in design and structure. This is not to be construed as a negative, not at all.

We got two "TB's". One is a bit lighter and both have a few differences here and there. The mug does have some handmade characteristics, again the "primitive" nature of his ceramics. We're quite pleased with the purchase, it appears to be Michelle's new personal mug. I wish Bosko would do more ceramics; I recall in previous years how much he had to offer.

In conclusion:

Typical Bosko ceramic in quality and design. A nice idea that was well executed, it has grown on me (as I was more partial to his first TB type mug). The price was a bit high, but it is a nice splurge given its limited production.

Christened my Tipsy Bob last night and he held grog like a champ! He made Tiki Bob proud in all his primitive Tiki tipsiness!

This guy will hold about 14 oz. of your favorite drink!

Cheers!

Just got mine in the mail at work today, and have only taken a quick look, but boy are they hefty! Will give more insight when I get them home and inspect more thoroughly. One was #20, don't know the other # yet. What # did everyone else get?

We received numbers 18 & 19, but Bosko mistakenly placed the card for #17 inside of #19. My belief is this error will only increase its value!

Sorta bummed though, we'd hoped for numbers 8 and 22. Those are our favorite Chinese food dishes.

Still cannot fathom Krista picking that lame poetry dude.
