Mug Shots Hiatus

4 May

 The team at Mug Shots has been bogged down by so-called “real work” and needs to take a little coffee break. Sorry for the sudden shutdown, but we plan to come back better than ever in the coming months. Thanks for reading and feel free to continue submitting your mugs to us while we’re down. We’ll be happy to display them for all to see very soon. Cheers!


Submitting to Mug Shots – Read All About It!

23 Apr

 1. It begins with a caffeine addiction.

2. A camera device captures your mug.

3. An internet device sends us your mug.

4. It ends with a picture of your mug emailed to us and posted in all it’s glory for the world to see!

By golly, old chap. It’s about as easy as enjoying the morning news with your favorite cup of Joe.

Send your images to:

While we enjoy scouring old movies and tv shows for great mug shots, we want to see some more real world personality!

We are open to see your mugs however you choose to display them, we’d like to list a few category ideas to keep the ball rolling. Looking for images in these categories:

Family Mug Shot – The Parkers

20 Apr

 A Mug Shots first – the family mug shot! Meet (just a few) members of the Parker clan. They’ve thoughtfully displayed their mismatched mugs for us at Granny’s Kitchen in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Some of the family members got together to reconnect and spend the weekend with one another. Here they enjoyed a breakfast treat and a few conversation inspiring mugs to get their day started. We hope the family had a great time and made the most of their visit. Cheers!

Felix Mug – Layla

16 Apr

 Meet Layla, former black and white kitchen rocker, turned not-so-much. At one time she not only had an addiction to caffeine, but one to Felix the Cat. She had coffee mugs, salt and pepper shakers, yo-yos and figurines; all to compliment her black and white eatery. Most of the items now live in storage, but her Felix mug lives free and is her go-to office coffee charmer. How could you not have a great start to your day when that wide-eyed goofy face looks right back at you?!

Energizer® Mug – New Employee “145934”

9 Apr

 Proud new Energizer® employee “145934” (and we call him that so the old kids don’t beat up the new kid) has quickly adjusted to his new corporate digs. Naturally his florescent lit cubicle is outfitted with a plush signature pink bunny (in flip flops!) and a mug that employee “239867” and “835679” mistakenly took home on their first day, never to be seen again. A few photos of the wifey and maybe a nice plant and employee “145934” will fit right in with everyone else. Good luck on the new gig and to the many corporate coffee refills in your future!

Ode to the Coffee Mug – A Dramatic Reading

23 Mar

A moment of silence to take in the fragrance steaming from the cup.
The ceramic vessel of warmth spreads from the hands into the arms and letting the muscles liberate.
Anticipation of the sharp bite of caffeine grows. Ultimately cooled by sugar; sweetening the blow.
To halt and let blank thoughts flood the mind. Colors start to come alive. Black and white mornings become vivid days.
Settled. Recharged. Contemplating not moving. Just letting things go.

Another Broken Egg Cafe Mug

16 Mar

One more breakfast joint that does breakfast like breakfast is supposed to be. Another Broken Egg Cafe has set up shop in the Southern U.S. in states like Texas, Louisiana and (this mug from) Mississippi. After reading the menu, the Mug Shots team only wishes there were a closer location! Some omelettes we wouldn’t mind digging into:

The Floridian
Our cream cheese filled omelette is topped with fresh crabmeat sautéed in our special house-made garlic butter and finished with melted Jack cheese and a touch of scallions.

The Farm Fresh
Our garden fresh selection of broccoli, mushrooms, onions, tomatoes & melted combo cheese.

Bacado Omelette
Our baked crisp bacon & avocado slices are finished off with melted Monterey Jack cheese, with homemade salsa.

Through community coffee they have been awarded “gold cup” status. Brought to the customer by carefully monitoring & metering the quality of their coffee & water. Line us up a few of those omelettes and a mug of that quality brew and paint us a picture of a wonderful morning!

A Giant Cup – Erica (Our 100th Post!)

14 Mar

Meet Erica’s Giant Cup of Shut the F*©# Up. We decided to feature Erica’s mug in our 100th post for several reasons. We like it’s simplicity. We love it’s brashness. We appreciate her ability to tell it like it is. Honesty really is the best policy. Erica saves her sugar for sweetening her black gold and the rest speaks for itself. Thanks for sharing, Erica!

Star Trek: The Original Series Mug – Dave

12 Mar

Meet Dave’s Star Trek: The Original Series Mug. As far as mugs go and as far as Star Trek goes, this piece of ceramic is pretty swell. We Googled all that we could to try to find another mug that matched this, but we were left with no reward. Having said that, we’d guess that Dave has a pretty prized possession in his grasp. Remember Dave: Boldly go where no man has gone before and keep both hands on that mug. Especially when you battle aliens, megalomanical computers, time paradoxes, psychotic murderers and even Genghis Khan!

Sufferin’ Succotash Mug

9 Mar

Sufferin’ succotash, we wish we were on that deck, on that lake, on a warm, late summer day. Damnit winter, be gone. Guess a few warm sips of coffee or tea will do….
