What the...? Can't Post

So one facet of my day job is searching for promotional products, i.e. trade show giveaways that can be imprinted with a company logo or whatever, and today while searching for 22oz. tumblers for a particular client I came across this:

http://www.bulletline.com/...SM-6670#.UfCXwtLVCSo

And proceeded to laugh myself into a stupor. Whoever named this thing is my new hero... however I can't help but wonder what in the world a promotional item for tasty beverages (hot or cold!) has to do with the Dark Lord... and whether they'll eventually get sued for using his name Laugh

Reminds me of a stand-up comedian's bit [In reply to] Can't Post

on how it is impossible for men to look tough if they are downing their drinks through straws. And I'm imagining Sauron sipping on a straw while overseeing his orc minions. Laugh

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Perhaps while sitting on a lounge chair on the beach of the Sea of Nurnen? [In reply to] Can't Post

Nurn, Nurnen... I can't remember..

"I had forgotten that. It is hard to be sure of anything among so many marvels. The world is all grown strange. Elf and Dwarf in company walk in our daily fields; and folk speak with the Lady of the Wood and yet live; and the Sword comes back to war that was broken in the long ages ere the fathers of our fathers rode into the Mark! How shall a man judge what to do in such times?"

"As he ever has judged. Good and ill have not changed since yesteryear; nor are they one thing among Elves and Dwarves and another among Men. It is a man's part to discern them, as much in the Golden Wood as in his own house."

How come we never get spam like this? [In reply to] Can't Post

No we get kitchens and bikinis. Not anything useful like Sauron sippy cups.

Surprise is that they come in any other color but black, light black and dark black.

I want to get my son a sippy cup... [In reply to] Can't Post

...that says "Stormageddon, Dark Lord of All".

Bonus points to anyone that gets why :)

Hmm, I just might be able to make that happen... [In reply to] Can't Post

The minimum order for these is slightly more than a gross, but I can order "spec samples" where you pay a $25 setup fee + shipping for them to put the imprint of your choice on one cup, ostensibly to demo it to prospective clients... Angelic

What these really need is a little red eyeball on the straw!
