Perhaps you've found yourself in a high or even low profile job in which you're constantly being bothered with people's petty issues. Place a Grenade Mug on the edge of your desk, and I wonder if you won't get a little more peace and quiet, or at least a few laughs.

This army-esque teacup is shaped like a hand grenade, complete with a striker lever as a handle and a fake pin. The bomb drinking vessel reads "Complaint Department: Please Take a Number," essentially inviting the unsatisfied to pull the pin, detonate the device and blow himself up.

Of course, the Grenade Mug is simply a 12-ounce ceramic coffee cup with attitude, and not an actual weapon. Whether it's interpreted as humor or anger, it depends on the nature of the man who drinks from it. Stats for Explosive Coffee Cups Trending: Older & Average
