Mugs

Tell me the truth now, do you want to buy a Frank Chalk mug to light the fires of revolution in your Staffroom? I need to order at least a hundred from the suppliers, so to protect me from the wrath of Mrs C. perhaps you could let me know if there is any demand first.

I reckon they will be about £6.95 and suggestions about the design are welcome (Probably the book cover, maybe with a catchy slogan if anybody can suggest one.) I'll post a picture of the finished product first if there's enough interest.

Since most staff pinch someone elses mug how about a play on words from your book title. 'It's my mug you're tasting!'

?From memory one of your staffroom irritations was the sight of congealing mugs with pseudo-witty slogans on them littering the table space. I seem to remember "you don't have to be mad to work here but it helps" particularly raising your ire.

How about “It’s the holidays, stupid.”?

My word brother, times must be hard. I'll have a couple.

How about one with a design of congealing coffee dribbles down the side, blue fur on the bottom and a lipstick mark on the rim? That might deter people from borrowing it and never washing it or bringing it back.

Maybe a deluxe version? When lifted from the counter, a message in Mr Creosote tones along the line of "F*ck off and bring your own!" could ring out.

I suppose wiring it up to the mains is illegal.

Two teachers and 3 class room assistants to buy 'Xmas' pressies for, so that's me down for 5 then, in -fact call it 6. I'll treat myself to one.
