THINGS COULD BE WORSE

Mug - robotEaster is a truly inconvenient time for a worship pastor to lose his voice. So of course, last Easter, I was sick and (you guessed it) lost my voice.

As I was trying to nurse my voice back, I drank a lot of Throat Coat Tea, and I found it comforting to drink from my favorite mug. It’s an elegant work of art with remarkable craftsmanship that rewards close examination.

In fact, if you look closely, you’ll notice things like 1) Flying Saucers attacking a quaint village, 2) a Giant Robot, 3) an angry Sea Monster, 4) Pterodactyls, 5) Bigfoot (I think), 6) a Giant Frog, 7) an approaching Pirate Ship, and my personal favorite 8) a Zombie Poodle. In fact, if you take the time to look, you’ll find many more threats carefully hidden throughout the artwork.

According to Don Moyer (the artist who designed them) they’re called “Things Could Be Worse” Mugs. He says, “No matter how bad your day is going, [these mugs] graciously remind you things could be much worse.”

I have to say that I admire both his craftsmanship and his sense of humor.

    Where do I get one of these? This would be perfect for my dad for Father’s Day!

    Hey Terri, I got mine via a Kickstarter campaign, but the mugs (and many other fun and weirdly creative items) are available on Don Moyer’s website: http://calamityware.com/

    And no, I’m not getting any kickback for referring people to his stuff. I just really, really like his work. 🙂

    I can’t find the zombie poodle. I want to see the zombie poodle.

    Hey Sandy, you can just barely see it on the right side (kind of under the handle). Go to his website (see my earlier comment) for a better look…
