Would anyone like to buy an Anna Raccoon mug to support the site?
There’s a bit of a story here – the first experiment in an idle moment was with a mug using the slogan “Phil Woolarse MP”, after an article published here late last year.
[Update: I have been summarily corrected in the comments, and suitably grovel in apology, it was actually *this* article by Daedalus X Parrot which coined “Phil Woolarse MP”, and inspired the original thought. My pathetic excuse is that “Woolarse” did not come up in an archive search.]
We experimented with a mug from Spreadshirt, who are a European company, but the Phil Woolarse MP slogan was refused (my account of that is here) on the basis that it might offend somebody. Amongst others, Fleet Street Fox uses Spreadshirt.
Calling MPs arses from time to time is a necessary, honourable and public-spirited activity in any democracy; therefore we are now with Zazzle.
The cost of the mug pictured is Â£12.80 plus p&p, but ‘classic white mugs’ (not dissimilar to Starbucks mugs if you’ve seen those in the past) are currently Â£11.30. On a mug you get not one, but two Raccoon logos.
And if you are so inclined, you can apply the design to everything from a teeshirt to a mousemat.
This mugs can be purchased here, and any suggestions, comments, ideas or raspberries can be made or blown in the comments.
We also have a version without the slogan:
There is also the original Phil Woolas mug at the site, but that is now part of history.
