The main thing to remember is that the nostrils on this pot are open, so it's not a mug. Really. It's actually an egg separator. It's not a mug. Guess where the egg whites come out? As I said it 'snot a mug. Get it? Oh, well, if you don't, just read the instructions:

"Room temperature eggs flow fast. Cold eggs produce long, hanging egg whites which you may find more entertaining or disgusting. For extra fun with a cold egg, tip separator slightly and then return to vertical. Egg will begin to flow and then retract into separator."

Although technically not a mug (I believe I've established this fact quite clearly), I do think it belongs in the "Mugs I Will Never Drink Out Of" collection.
