I have a horrible admission to make. I’m now willing, without intervention, to come out off the shelf and spill my guts on it. I revealed in the Coconaut post my love of Tiki Mugs. But, I must tell you true. I am not only a fan, and a collector, but I am an ADDICT.
Short, tall, colorful, classic, modern, bring them all the heck on! I’d sell my soul for a Volcano Bowl, play the kazoo for a Fugu for Two, or even enter a blind Foosball tournament for one of Rum Demon’s classics. I’ve got a personal collection well over 100, most of which are listed on my Ooga-Mooga account. I even bought about a few dozen mugs from Tiki Farm for folks what came to Tiki Tuesday at Teardrop! but my li’l collection pales in comparison to the man in the video below. That is none other than Duke Carter, author of Tiki Quest, a sort of Collector’s Guide with a LOT of pretty pictures, and not so many of those damnable lists.
Here’s a video interviewing the author and showing off his rather stupendous collection. I’m sure some day I’ll have a collection like his… when I open a new wing of the Galley, maybe… and happen to find a unicorn in a compromising position with Bill Gates… maybe.
Hey there folks,
I just got notice of this courtesy of Dr. Bamboo, and wanted to pass the message.
All profits from each mug purchased will be going towards the Maine Chapter of the Multiple Sclerosis Society. If you’re not aware, MS is a disease in which the body begins to attack its own nervous system. The MS Society is seeking to make life better for those living with the disease, as well as finding a cure. Your $40 donation not only nets you a pretty fantastic mug, but pitches in your good deed for the day. Support your Ohana!
I’ve got mine on the way, get yours today and lets drink to charity!
