It's all very well having all these arguments about minor issues, e.g ROC of 109K4s and ranges of Spit IXs, but what about the important issues.

Like many I'm currently enjoting a nica cuppa (whilst pretending to work).
I'm drinking from my Hurricane Society mug. A vastly superior mug of fine craftman ship with a nice sepia effect piccie on one side and a little bit a interesting text on the other.

My mug is much better then any lousy Luffie' mug and has a much better sipping angle then any over blown Yankie-doodle-dandy mug.

My mug is the snizzle, yours all suck!!!

Your mug is 'overmodelled', and it probably was purchased from the 'Britain is the centre of the universe' shop.
Maybe a little bit of bias has naturally sipped in there. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I agree entirely old chap. The Luftwaffe mug may be a powerful and efficient angular thing, but I find it completely lacking in grace and fine lines when compared with British cuppas.

The American cup certainly goes a long way, but I can't help but blame the US for every little thing wrong with the world nontheless.

Doth your mug provide a stable sipping platform?

Despite the Spitfire mug getting all the credit, I bet your mug dunked more biscuits during the recent Bun-fight of Britain.

Was this mug made using slave labour from the Evil British Empire/Commonwealth?

I have figures to show that Germany's mug production is at artificially low levels and if it wanted to could trounce your countries Hurricane mug production by flooding the market with cheaper Bf 109 mugs!

(off to falsify some mug prodution propaganda documents - brb!)

I use a P-47 TANKard. It's made out of cast aluminum, weighs five pounds, and holds two pints. It climbs to your mouth slowly but dives to the counter like an Alpine avalanche. It is unbreakable, will attack any Hummel miniature in the room and destroy it remorselessly, and seems to work best handled by people of Polish descent.

Recent astronomical observations suggest that it is entirely possible that Britain is, in fact, at the centre of the universe.

I have a B-17 mug. My B-24 mug holds more tea/coffee/hot chocolate, and keeps it warmer longer, but I'm sure the -17 mug is better.

Several years ago I bought a really slick rig from Falcon Northwest. When I opened the boxes included were not only a black T Shirt with a cool Falcon logo but also a large black coffee mug, also with the logo. PLUS a pound of really good coffee. Now that's customer service.

Please note that while the American mugs were a bit tardy, they held more volume and were filled with a more caffeinated beverage, allowing us to get in the air well before you all took tiffin (whatever the hell tiffin is)!

Plus, they had laminar flow, allowing said highly caffeinated beverage to arrive more efficiently (see: Chug-chug-chug post above).

Let's not forget the American "navalized" cups. These could be toted long-range into your neighbors yard for an animated discussion. Then returned home to be placed on a very small and hard-to-find table. Once there, the cup can be slammed down very hard on the table and still not break!

If you so choose, you can move the table into your neighbor's yard so you won't have to walk so far (with your cup) to have an argument with him.

Plus the cups are richly painted in a deep blue with big white arrows, diamonds, slashes, and lightning bolts. Very charming!

...This was a better alternative to the British navalized cups. They were very attractive and easy to wield, but they weren't originally intended to be slammed down on small tables. They'd often break...

Oh, I get it.

Our tables are smaller than your tables.

Now, back off topic after six-hundred and sixteen tries I've found my dream mug: teh Avro Lancaster Mug, despite its high upkeep it'll carry whatever you want as dam far as you want and no Mohneing.

A place I once worked at had a coffee machine with buttons for the strength of the coffee...
Three button pushes for extra strong...

Then I came to a place which had it on a slider...

Insta strength..!
