My Mug Collection

Filed under: Music,Ooga-Mooga,Tiki — Humuhumu @ 5:09 pm

Two items:

First off, a dear friend of mine, pablus, has written a lovely little ditty in tribute to tiki mugs and tiki drinks (keep your ears perked for the Tiki Bob anti-tribute). My Mug Collection is an infectious tune, it’s on heavy rotation in the Humuhumu household.

Secondly, I’d like to take a moment to show off my own mug collection, which naturally is on display at Ooga-Mooga.

Come see the rest of my collection on Ooga-Mooga

I’ve currently got 33 mugs in my personal collection on Ooga-Mooga (I’ve got a couple more here & there around the house that I have to add still), 28 of them are unique (I’ve got some duplicates, mostly coconut mugs). The most common mug in my collection, by Ooga-Mooga terms, is the Disneyland Pele Mug, which is in 16 other Ooga-Mooga collections. The total capacity of my collection is at least 2.3 gallons, the largest being my Trader Dick’s Hula Bowl (26 fl. oz.), and the smallest being a Dinky Tiki Shot (2 fl. oz.). The best bargain in my collection, according to Ooga-Mooga? My Trader Vic’s Coconut Mug, which I got for .50, 9% of the going rate of $5.50.

Hmmm… it’s 5 o’clock, maybe it’s time to fix myself a Fog Cutter, which at 7.5 fl. oz. Ooga-Mooga tells me will fit perfectly in my new mug from the Lucky Tiki!
