I was at the Salvation Army here in Downey Ca. yesterday and I came across this mug. At first I passed it up. But, I couldn't get over the fact that the teeth were very KU like. There are no markings on this mug, but I can't help but wonder .... Is there a Tiki/Beaver connection. I know I might sound stupid. I am super stoked at my unique find. Hell, it was a $1.50 It is a new favorite in my collection of Tiki Mugs. If any of you can offer me any info on it's origins I would be very Happy !!! Thanks

That, my friend, is rumored to be from the Tiki Trapper in Hamilton, Ontario.



It has showed up a few times here on TC.

or, I swear it could be from Babalu's infamous Tiki bunny phase!

The quest for beaver was a very mid century gentleman's club/lounge activity (sans the buckskins and canoe, of course), ergo Tiki.

Good grief. I can't tell if I'm not hip to the joke or if this is a real thing.

I would have thought any shared tiki
Mountweazels would have been somehow owl related.
