If this mug seems familiar, you may have seen it on Channel 4's The IT Crowd
. For, yes, it is indeed Roy & Moss's drinking vessel of choice! Hurrah!
From these two pictures taken from the 360º panoramic view of the IT Crowd set
on Channel 4's site, we can see that Moss favours his mug displayed happy-face out
, whereas Roy takes a more saturnine approach to life, and puts his grrr-face out
When I draw a lovely mug of tea, I always give it a happy face.
This mug has the very happy face I draw, so you can recreate an authentic Laurie Pink mug of tea!
However, because a mug has two sides, and we are complicated and emotional creatures, you can also choose to have grumpy tea, because no one can be a ray of sunshine ALL the time.
This is a LEFT HAND HAPPY
mug, meaning that a right-handed tea drinker will automatically be displaying a gumpy mug to the world.
If you are of a more cheerful disposition, or more often use your left hand to hold your tea mug, may I suggest the RIGHT HAND HAPPY
