The funny mug — everyone has at least one in their collection. There are the wordy ones, branded with clever, witty puns. The "collector's items" and souvenir mugs, and of course those silly ones decorated with cartoons. And let's not forget the gag gifts, shaped as something that definitely doesn't look like it should hold a drink. You're almost too embarassed to let anyone else use it, and yet you've had it forever, oddly and inexplicably attached to it.
Mine was a bright pink Disney princess mug (my best friend had one in the shape of the popular 1980s TV character, ALF). So forget the fancy china and expensive crystal, and raise a glass to kitsch.
