Gift of Pete Marshall, 2007

Words udderly fail me here, and that's not a common occurrence. I can't even call it a four-legged mug, because, well, the mug isn't being supported by legs. Would one call it four-teated? Can I even say that on the web?

The urge to resort to tacky puns is quite strong in this case, and I have udderly failed to resist. So, I'm going to revel in it instead. Here goes!

This mug is:

  • udderly ridiculous
  • udderly hilarious
  • udderly tacky

Surely, under the circumstances, I can be forgiven.

Addendum: Pete Marshall gave me this second example of a cow udder mug at the Rockbridge Festival in 2007. Cows and kitsch go together like, well, cows and udders!
