YA know BRO,
You are missing a great opportunity here.
you could offer up a "Big Bro approved" sticker
to all 'TIKI' related manufacturers
they summit their products to YOU, and you approve or disapprove.
giving the authority to attach a "B.B. APROVED" sticker to the item.
they,of course, would try harder to produce only quality items set to your standards. thus raising the bar,and in the end saving all of us 'uneducated' collectors the embarrassment of buying crap.
just a thought.

Warning, the following comment is an opinion (apologies to Wayne Coombs and probably many TC members):

Personally, I have a thing against pineapples on Tikis. To me, it's just so ascetically lame, sorry. Pairing that up with a bad rum just makes things worse (for me... not necessarily you).

I have to agree with you there, I like this mug OK, but it would be much cooler if it ditched the pineapple. I really dislike when on a carving the pineapple is painted and that becomes the focal point. This is not to speak badly on the fine juices of the pineapple, which are of course delicious.

I gotta side with Bigbro! On a few levels! Tommy Bahama rum and Tommy Bahama tiki mug kinda goes hand in hand with listening to Jimmy Buffet in your tiki bar. Not everything tiki-ish is done in good taste and should be revered just because a mediocre attempt was made. Being selective on what you choose to patronize and support through your spending dollars can take discipline. Just because you put syrup on it dont make it pancakes and all that glitters aint gold!!!
