What did Ben Franklin do after his kite got struck by lightning? Surely he had to sit down for a cup of tea. Having a little fun with the founder of electricity is this mug, which features a strategically placed notch. Hang your tea bag string in it, and suddenly Ben is flying high again (that's his son next to him). Taken from a Currier & Ives 1876 hand-colored lithograph, the image adds a little science fun to your sipping. Made from stoneware in China.
