5 Steps To Making Sure Mugs Don't Threaten Your Home

When asked which obstacle to the progress and prosperity of humankind is greatest, a person may put forth any number of answers. Nukes. Lack of nukes. Big government. Small government. Global warming. Global conspiracy.

Regardless of these dummy answers, there remains one creeping threat, one true hellraiser that is as mundane and invisible as it is lethal. For years it has infiltrated our society right under our noses—both metaphorically and literally—as we press it against our lips every morning. It is…

The mug.

Our world has become overrun by ugly mugs, and I'm not just talking about faces. They're everywhere—in our kitchens, living rooms, offices, schools, gardens, swimming pools, etc. And if we're not careful, we might just find ourselves in a Terminator-style post-apocalypse run by glassware perfect for holding hot beverages. An effective preventative plan has no fewer than these five steps:

1. Stop denying.

Mugs are of the Devil.

They are.

They are!

Good. Glad we're on the same page. They're fat, clunky, and can't even stack up straight—all they do is crowd your cupboards and wait to pounce when you're least expecting. It's a miracle we've survived as long as we have after inviting so many muggy murderers into our homes.

2. Just say no.

The best offense is a good defense, and the best defense is to forswear the use of mugs and drink hot coffee out of your hands. Mugs aren't worth the risk. When you end up drawing a red plaid mug out of a white elephant gift exchange? Throw it in the garbage. When the fifth place prize at your local pie-eating contest is a painstakingly hand-crafted mug? Punt it into the nearest lake. When your grandmother gives you a mug with the prayer of Jabez inscribed on it for your graduation? Smash it in front of her. No mugs mean no problems.

3. Seek professional help.

True, professional mug removal is expensive, but its value cannot be understated. Many victims of mug infestation commonly say things like, "This isn't a problem. I don't have too many mugs," or, "I can stop gathering mugs whenever I want," or, "Why are you in my house looking for mugs?" To which I say, "Don't you know that the fate of the planet rests on exterminating these monsters?" A professional Mug Extractor is equipped not only to help you recognize your mug addiction but also to move all your mugs to a secure location with the necessary tongs and hazmat suit to prevent any further harm.

On a related note, I am the only professional Mug Extractor in the world.

4. Survive.

If, in your hubris, you have ignored steps one through three, you might wake up one day to find mugs tickling your toes, mountains of mugs having swarmed every room in your house in search of fresh blood. In such a situation, there is no need for fear—there is only need for absolute, ineffable terror. To evade the mugs' bloodthirst, you must blend in with the mugs, perhaps assuming an enormous mug costume you had prepared for such an occasion. You must also seek to gather rations and camp quietly among the mugs until someone from the outside world can save you.

5. All-out warfare.

Take a baseball bat and demolish every mug in sight. Leave no survivors.

All this to say... I have a lot of mugs, and I'd like to get rid of them. Contact me if you'd like a free mug.

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
