I also have a collection, of sorts, of mugs but nothing themed, exactly. Boob and a penis, monkey, Cabbage Patch, Star Wars (Vader, Boba, and a Stormtrooper), horoscope, name/personalized, and misc. others.
Wait... what?

I'm not sure what part needs clarifying.

In terms of theme, there's no overarching theme other than "mug."

Great thread idea! I also mostly collect tickets, for memory triggering. Since I'm home, and I just came back from a movie, I'm going through them all now. It's one of my favorite things to do when I'm here. I'd say I've saved like 70% of my tickets since about 2004; there are times that I forget or lose them before I can add them to my box. Also, a lot of St. Louis movie theaters started giving little receipts instead of ticket stubs, and they are ugly and sometimes don't even say the name of the movie, so I don't save those :(. Everything in my box is organized by category in different ziplock baggies. #bragging, I have:

43 movie tickets
32 concerts
17 plays/musicals (I also keep brochures and playbills from these and other things in another box)
16 baseball games (10 Boston Red Sox, 6 St. Louis Cardinals)
7 various UConn sporting events
I also have various museum, amusement park, other sports/teams, college event, and other "cultural" tickets in the same box, those are harder to put into categories.

I have a few of my favorites on my bulletin board, including one Harry Potter movie stub, a World Series ticket (Red Sox/Cardinals, coincidentally), a ticket to the Rose Bowl, and a Packers ticket.

I have tickets from when I've been traveling (including plane/train/etc, and museums/tours/etc.) all organized in different boxes as well...I'm less good about keeping track of those, but I think I'm probably still over 50%.

My closet is a mess with all this stuff...somebody's going to have to call Hoarders on me in a few years when I'm living in a sea of paper memories.

Oh! Well, my grandpa gave my parents the mugs as a gag gift before their wedding. Being divorced and all, my parents couldn't care less about old wedding gifts, so I took them. You can drink from the nipple of the boob mug but, because of the design, you can't drink from the head of the penis. So sad.

Drat. That's where all my favorite beverages come from.

Would you like a picture of my penis (mug), Erica?

I'm having a harder time visualizing the boob. Isn't a nipple too small of an opening to classify it as a mug? Or is it angled such that the big opening is into the boob and the nipple is just where you put your mouth?

Also, it's a good thing I'm feeling too lazy to look up the out of context thread right now...

There is a hole in the tip of the penis but because of the way the mug is, you'd spill all the liquid on yourself trying to angle it correctly. The boob is better designed to handle drinking from the nipple; it has a big enough top part to catch liquid.

(If this is offensive, I can remove the image tags...)

Huh. Those are more realistic than I had imagined. I like that the top of the boob has some slope to it.

The hole in the tip of the penis mug seems pointless. Or are they going for realism?

Yeah, I'm assuming realism because it makes no other sense to me.

Nice mug. I hear there's a larger one but it only comes in black. :wink: :lol:

Pretty happy with my current mug.
