In another thread, Doctor Z was just remarking about finding that tell-tale hard-water line in a tiki mug that shows it was used as a planter at some time by a previous owner. I think we've all found them. I always shake my head and say, "Crazy Fools. What were they thinking!?" (or something G-rated like that).

Now I discover that I was wrong all along!?

Did anyone else see this auction:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3255860610&category=29460

Dang! (or something similarly Disney-style), I've been drinking out of a planter all this time! Don't I feel like an idiot.

What if we've got this tiki-mug thing all wrong? What if we've contaminated a perfectly good horticultural-fad and twisted it into a laughable rum-drinking cult? What if the Book-of-Tiki was all a bad guess? I need an affirmation, brethren! If I'm not reassured soon, I'm going to put a seedling in my Frankoma War God while I sip a Mai-Tai from my favorite Bauer Flower Pot.

Wake Me Up From This Bad Dream!!!!

`bu, it gets worse: y'know the giant clamshell we've been using for Scorpions all these years?

Um... it's actually part of a fountain...

Sorry, braddah...

No, no, everyone know those glass monsters are supposed to be candle holders! At least, that's what the lady at the flea market told me. I laughed at her then, but then when I tried, it, DAMN, they DO make good candle holders!!! The face lights up!

I, for one, welcome our new horticultural hobby. Next stop, tiki scrapbooking!

My roommate brought me a mug she found at a thrift store -- we could tell it had been used as a planter because there was still dirt inside and someone had drilled a hole in the bottom! Fortunately, it was only a Harvey's bucket. I'm now using it as aquarium decor.

I have one of those fat goblet style tiki mug/glasses and I use it as a planter for a spider plant. The leaves of the plant are very long and hang down over the tiki's face, making him look like a wild headhunter. Why do I have a feeling that I should feel shame in admitting this...
