Cliff Hanger Mug

The Cliff Hanger Mug replaces traditional coffee mug handles with the synthetic boulders rock climbers use for indoor honing of finger strength. Not to state the obvious, but, that's funny. And apropos. Because coffee drinking, rock climbing, they're both fitfully precarious endeavors. For example, when rock climbing, the following tragedies can strike:

  • Severe lacerations
  • Crushed bones
  • Death

And when drinking coffee:

  • Scalded tongue
  • Acid reflux
  • Jitters
  • Caffeine headache
  • Sudden, pressing urge to poo

Yep. Rock climbing and coffee drinking: two highways to the danger zone, now joined together into a Meta statement of adventure and hardness of core. Do you dare drink from the Cliff Hanger?

How about while wearing a white shirt?

And typing on a brand new MacBook?

With your new girlfriend's Louis Vuitton purse in your lap?

And her 6-month old Maltese's head sticking out of the purse?
