Kraken's Toast Tiki Mug
A note from the designer, Brian Kesinger about this mug:
Legend speaks of a monstrous creature who lurks in the depths of the sea. For centuries this beast has haunted many a sailor’s nightmares but we now know that it's just been misunderstood. The ocean can be a solitary place and the Mighty Kraken just wants somebody to share a drink with! The problem is; it’s a little clingy. His quest for companionship is often misconstrued as nothing more than vicious attacks.
With many a shipwreck in its wake, it’s your turn to raise a glass...or a barrel...to your new unfathomable friend!
