What sense does it make when you have the list price of the coffee mug toilet @ $10.97, but Amazon has it at $18.99? What a freakin' deal.

Haha! The toilet mug is indeed, not only a cool cup, but also an awesome gag gift idea. Thanks for stopping by!

Yes, the Fisticup truly packs a punch, doesn't it? The metal handle makes it one arrogant and mean looking coffee cup.

The toilet mug is a real cracker! It was hard to stop giggling while doing this review.

CorningWare never seems to go out of vogue, does it? The CorningWare cups serve as coffee cups and can be used to store or heat small meals. They score top marks for utility in my books along with the ThermoServ mugs.
