Supersize your arachnid drinkware

arachnid coffee mug, large

Note quite what I wanted to give you…

What I REALLY wanted was to have a mug that was blank on the outside, or had some innocuous print like flowers or Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Starry Night that would lull people into a false sense of security.

Then on the inside of the mug, I’d print a photo of a funnel web spider as large as I possibly could. I think the best place would be right on the very bottom. People would buy the mug to scare their friends.

So these cool people would give their dorky guests this harmless-looking yet secretly-sinister mug to drink from. Everything would be hunky dory until they get the end of their cuppa. The cool people would have to be all calm and not let on that something is wrong.

Then when the dorkmeisters are taking their last sip and the cup is really close to their face, they’ll see the creepy spider in the bottom of their mug, ready to pounce on their face. They’ll freak out and drop the cup, breaking it into a thousand little pieces. And their cool friend will laugh at them because it was just a joke. And the freaked out geekfest will be all apologetic that they broke the mug and will promise to replace it and I will make more money.

But I couldn’t get one of those. So instead you’ll just have to make do with this mug. A supersize mug for the true caffeine addicts.
