The house is on fire.You've loaded the photo albums and the cat(or dog)into the car and have only enough time to grab four mugs.One under each arm and one in each hand.What do you take?What are your four most favourite mugs in your collection?I'm more interested in your favourite design.It can have sentimental meaning,but not because it cost you a lot or because it has good re-sale value.

I was originally thinking of top three but that was too hard and figured you can carry four at once.

Here's my four;

Augie Colon by Gecko


Leaky Ku by Vantiki


Martin by The Pizz


MonkeyBrains by Munktiki

If your house was on fire I would take VanTiki's also...actually where do you live? I will come by to get it as a preventative measure.

My absolute favorite--Munktiki's King Tubby


Munktiki's Monkey Brains


Babalu's Drum


Rum Demon's Banana Diablo

In a fire I'd be more worried about my carvings and such but here are a few mugs



Red White and Blue mug from The Tikis, good in this country and France or England too.



Ku & Coconut shell, two great styles that taste great together



This Handsome blue bowl because if I'm going to lose it all in a fire I'll need a bowl with a large alcohol capacity to drown the sorrows.

Wait a minute. Aren't mugs fired? Wouldn't they survive a house fire? Save the rum!

Bosko's cook island, and 3 Munktiki Kustomas. That's a tough one.

That makes sense.Although you could just keep re-filling a smaller one.

ooOoo I always have a "the house is on fire, what do I save" plan. I'd just start chucking stuff out the windows into the bushes. I don't have a fabulous mug collection but I've got an incredible vintage furniture collection. I would try to save as many art books as possible, what about records.. aahhhh and what if the house was on fire in the middle of the night and you were naked! AAAHHH!!!

I would mix myself a Mai Tai and go down in flames with my mugs in a display of self immolation.

If the above happened I'd probably take the following...

Mauna Loa Drum Mug


Mauna Loa Cauldron Mug


Disney's Polynesian Resort Mug


and last but not least, Tiki Bob. He's not rare, but I just couldn't leave his happy face behind
