I saw this over-sized mug in the Harriet Carter catalog, and decided I had to have it for my "Mugs I'll Never Use" collection. It's a monument to poor taste. I almost made a cup of tea in it this morning, but couldn't bring myself to drink what I like to call "The Other Brown Drink" out of something that looks like a potty.
As I tried to think of what I could say about this toilet mug, I realized that Harriet Carter had already beat me to some of the best lines in her amazing catalog entry. I even think she was using the word "gag" without irony.
This monstrosity is over-sized as a mug, as you can see from the second photograph. As size goes, it's really more of a stew bowl. However, since Harriet Carter advertises it as a mug, and I don't want to start a new category ("Stew Bowls I'll Never Use"), I'm parking this example here.
Although I refuse to use this even once, there is a member of my household who is not so picky, as can be seen by this video.
