For the day that’s in it.
Frank O’Dea, of Balla Bán Art Gallery in Westbury Mall, Dublin, writes:
With Prince Charles and Camilla’s arrival to Dublin today, we have decided to mark the occasion with a bit of memorabilia of the man himself in the gallery window – a mug of a younger Prince Charles when he got engaged to Lady Diana. It’s the last of its kind and costs €20.
The inscription reads:
“Whatever beverage brims in this cup
Thank God for PRINCE CHARLES when you pick it up
And as you quaff it, bless that same grand Planner
Who gave him for a bride the fair DIANA.”
Sure, your fancy coffee mug holds coffee. But is it milled from a solid chunk of T6 aluminium? Does it have three Mil-Spec 1913 scope rails for attaching laser sights and night vision? Does it pack a CAA light, AR15 handle and stabilising bipod? No it does not.
The OPMOD Battle Mug has all these things. And it costs $250.
It is very silly indeed.
