Hi Gayle...this thread has been hilarious, but I think your idea is actually
a potential moneymaker! People will pay $ for joke gifts...remember the pet
rock in a box? These would also be for people who have to stop drinking
coffee. Logo: "My Doctor said 'No more coffee'. This is the mug you give
a guest who says "Nothing, thanks", when offered something to drink! I
think people would buy a "Diet Mug". Make a little ledge at the bottom so
it would hold a bottle of water, and display it that way too......thanks for
the laugh! Hey, Clayarters, let's all simultaneusly flood the market....

Ya know, this could be the ultimate bread and butter pot, but since I am an
uppity pottery snob, I am going to have to put my nose in the air and say "
I am not a maker of novelty items"

So anyone want to start a mold-based ceramic production facility? we could
be rich!!!

just kidding
