Disappearing Civil Liberties Mug

Give yourself a daily reminder of what rights are at stake with this disappearing civil liberties mug.

$13.95

Sip with a Statement

Think your right to be secure in your person, house, papers, and effects is safe? Think again! Still got the right to assemble and protest? Not for long. This mug is a daily reminder of all those government figures hacking away at our Bill of Rights. When hot liquid is poured into it, some rights stay and others disintegrate before your eyes. Say goodbye to a speedy and public trial, but your right to bear arms is perfectly safe.

The makers of this snarky sipper were inspired by Greek philosopher Thales, who asked fundamental questions about the world. Thales was also one of the few philosophers in history to make money by predicting a prosperous olive season. In the same vein, this mug turns philosophy into something you can actually use. Designed in Brooklyn, New York. Made in China.

      It is a perfect gift for a "thinking" young man BUT ..... it works by putting heated liquid in the mug - and Alex is not a coffee or tea drinker! I'm suggesting he use it for cups of hot soup!

      Funny gift for someone who works in law or who likes to make fun about how personal Constitutional rights are disappearing in the U.S. Can break but basically durable. This gift is to replace one that broke after a few years of use.

          I re packaged this cup and gave it to a co-worker as a gift. She loved the bill of rights on the outside of the cup but was delighted when the writing disappeared! So were my other co-workers who were with her. This really made our break time political debates a lot lighter!

          Great unique gift! It is fun to read the Amendments but sadly it is true that our civil liberties are disappearing.

          I had a problem with the original order. The cup was damaged in production. Uncommon Goods customer service is great. I received my replacement in less than a week.

            Product as pictured and amusing political commentary. It will give the recipient something to laugh about or possibly heartburn, depending on current events. Certainly a unique, dare I say, uncommon gift!

              Comments about UncommonGoods Disappearing Civil Liberties Mug:

              I gave this mug to my boyfriend for a birthday gift, thinking it would be fun for him to have at his office. Unfortunately, the first time he filled it with hot coffee the words immediately began sloughing off! He tried to push them back into place and now it lives on a bookcase, never to be used again. I'm pretty disappointed in this product.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivery was prompt and the product was in good condition on arrival. I'd like to note that I didn't call and complain, but if I had I'm sure that customer service would have been very accomodating. The service from this company is usually great!

                I gave this to my father for christmas. This product is very clever, and we really liked it. However, even when hand washing, the words started to come unstuck and move around. Now, a mere 5 months post Christmas, all the words are gone. Poor quality.
