This sort of goes hand in hand with the "Instant Coffee" thread. Post a pic of your favorite (Ugly) mugs!

Here's mine. Goes with us everywhere on the boat.

This is what happens when you don’t have a favorite. Over forty years ago I came home from a trip with a sailboat mug. That one mug has grown to just under 100 mugs. This is a small sample.

The word "Mug" was introduced to English by the Normans (1066 and all that) from Norman French..........we needed a name for the Anglos

Anglo-Norman language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

We have no word for Aussies though. Only a hand gesture derived from the Bible. Onan

In the civilised parts of the world these are used:-



For our colonial members, the large item is a teapot and the frisbee shaped things are saucers
