Caffeine is the drug of choice for many people and I myself am more than partial to a nice cup of tea. And if my beverage comes in a hilarious coffee mug, then my morning instantly goes from good to great. I can function without caffeine but TBH, I’d rather not have to go without it. Last week I ran out of tea bags and I decided to see how long I could go without breaking. I lasted a day.
As an English gal, I adore tea and could sip this heavenly brown liquid morning, noon, or night. My caffeine addiction began relatively late (in my teens) compared to some of my friends who had been sipping Earl Grey since the days of our childhood slumber parties. My mom noticed my adverse reaction to Coca-Cola when I was little and limited my intake of it, along with crazy colored sweets, which also sent me into a hyperactive frenzy. Thus, I will never know if my slight sensitivity to caffeine stemmed from my lack of the wondrous stuff as a kid, or if that’s just the way I’m wired. Either way — to this day I limit myself to two cups of tea per day and although I love coffee, I sadly can’t go near the stuff for fear of having a comedown involving palpitations and anxiety.
So whether you’re a coffee lover, a tea connoisseur like me, or a decaf queen, here are some comedic mugs to make you smile.
