Hoowee! That's awful. What is that thing? And why does it have breasts? It looks like something you'd find the the gift shop outside the Country Bear Enchanted Tiki Tiki Jamboree.

It looks like something I would buy.

I am sorry guys, but I have to react to this...
Ugly or not, this is NOT A TIKI MUG! Please do no use the wrong terminology just because e-bay dealers slap Tiki on things like this to get clicks:
Does it look like a Tiki? NO
Was it used in Polynesian Bars? NO (Japanese restaurants)

Yes, it is a theme mug, made by Daga, a Tiki mug manufacturing company, but that alone does not make it a Tiki mug. Tiki mugs are sculpted in the Tiki likeness, very simple.

And than there are Skull mugs, Dr. Funk mugs, Rum Barrels, Hula girl mugs, etc. that because they were made for and used in Tiki restaurants maybe can be referred to as belonging to the Tiki mug genre, but I draw the line at purely Chinese and other theme mugs.

It's a simple case of BWI. Bidding while intoxicated BigBro. Power and I were at a Elks club Luau earlier that night.

You know what, I just realized that YOU guys actually never called it a TIKI mug in your posts....
My apologies, you are forgiven, I guess it is a touchy issue with me!

Still got to go with Kon-Tiki Ports mug for the homliest thing ever produced, Tiki mug-wise. I am stuck alone in some foreign land, some scary outpost, savages and ne'er do wells abound? That little beast is going with me, just to scare the bad guys away.

Nothing done on a commecial scale, I have seen some home-made mugs make a train jump its track, will eclipse that mug for ugliness. Nothing!

Remember, it's not a matter of 'winning' an ebay bid, but rather a matter of a willingness to pay more than anyone else!

Power said "It will give everyone something to talk and laugh about".

ABSOLUTELY!

I have passed up on about 5 of these on my various thrift store excursions between Columbus and Cincinnati. Now that I realize that there are people out there who will actually buy them, I'm reconsidering.
Wait a minute...how many people DID bid on that item anyway?

Power - more of it to ya!
You gotta have some balls when you can admit to buying an ugly mug with 'em, right!?

ENJOY!

I was the one and only bid. Don't judge what people will by by me. I have a sick sense of humour
