How about a matching set.

I wonder if that second seller is throwing in the flag. Very patriotic. And it's nice to see that regardless of what you enter as your search criteria, their description line covers JUST about any possible matches....

Frightening. Just frightening.

To quote the description...

"GREAT big balls and a teeny tiny penis. (gay interest)"

Yes. Because anything with a visible penis, even a 'teeny tiny' one, becomes "Gay interest" on Ebay.

As much as I love Ebay-- its a very twisted world.

ok, i think this may actually qualify as the ugliest TIKI mug ever...







clearly an amateur cast made from a mold of an al harrington mug - this thing weighs over a pound! the walls of the mug are about 1/2" thick...

Haha, the mugs in the background look they are saying (deep voice, tom tom sound):

"He ugly! Not one of us! He is cast out from the tribe!"



Poor guy! He sure is an ugly duckling!

Looks like it would be useful as a hammer, though. That's the THICKEST mug I've ever seen!

perhaps it would be useful for drinking-based aerobic workouts?

I'm pretty sure I have everyone beat, IF we are not competing with Party City mass produced garbage....If we are talking "Real Custom/One-of-a-kind mugs,(you know why when you see them!) I ask you....Who thinks they can beat a Moai mug in which someone thought it would be cute to cover in a "seagull shit white" over brown glaze? and the same maker decided on a Leper Moai, tan color with "open sore red" as its underlying color?.....Soo ugly, that i bought these hobbyist "brother" mugs just to win the non-existent "Fugly Mugly" contests!

All hail king birdshitoai!

Not bad, not bad at all there Tom.

Birdshitoai has a nice ring to it!

I actually like that look - I will call it the 'weathered' look. It reminds me of a fallen tree that has been lying on the forest floor, and has all sorts of fungi, decomposing leaves, and other growth on it. Or an old sunken pirate ship, with all sorts of barnacles that may eventually threaten to overwhelm it.

For me, it captures the look-and-feel between the 'perfection' when a mug is newly made, and the final destructive 'dust-to-dust' moment when it is finally broken into small pieces of clay - but right now, it maintains its recognizable Moai form.

In that sense, it reminds me of an old googie space-age sign that sits rusted, somewhat neglected, over a storefront that has been empty for 20 years. A sign that had a glorious past, but yet holds on, not ready to give in and collapse just yet. Some people see it and think "tear that ugly thing down', while others may shout 'Restore it to its previous glory', and others just kind of secretly admire it as it is now.

The animal being referred to is a Tanuki, a real Japanese raccoon-like critter. In Japanese mythology, male tanuki have huge, magical balls. Really. Check out the anime film "Pom Poko", where you'll see tanuki doing things with 'em. Surprisingly, Disney did no censoring when releasing the dubbed version. I didn't see the mug, so I'll take your word that it was ugly; however, I highly doubt anything can beat "Moai with open sores". He's pretty revolting; if there's ever an Ugly Mugly contest, Tom Slick, you'll win paws-down. "Moai with bird droppings" is funny; some craft websites sell fairly realistic feathered birds with bendable talons, and I say you buy a raven or other avian critter and perch it atop the mug, as though it's been perched there a while. I'm reminded of the 70s mugs by a potter named Jim Rumph; my father's got two of these, and one is shaped like a knotty tree with a gruff-looking bird perched on the rim. Inside, in the bottom, sits a little troll making a "Mr. Yuk" face, with a white mess on his head. Google Rumph and you'll find photos, it's apparently called the "Splatter Bird" tankard. Not Tiki, but funny, and not even his best work, from what I've seen.
