Went to Pee Beer Mug




Stupid Beer Stein
ceramic
picked out of the dirt at
Dixon's Furniture Auction,
Crumpton, MD, July 2003

This poorly made mug tries too hard to be funny. The one gag "Went to P leave this drink alone" fails because it's meaningless when its owner is actually drinking out of it. The "Wet your whistle" gag is not much better, however, there actually is a working whistle in the handle of this sad little object. Overall, it's poorly made. The glaze of the lettering has worn off in places, making it hard to read the pathetic little jokes.

I'll never understand why I rescued it from the gaping mouth of the dumpster, except that it's such a good example of poor taste that it was hard to pass up. Plus it was free.
