  • History comes alive with our remarkable Disappearing Wives of Henry VIII Mug. This large mug features images of King Henry and all six of his wives. When you pour in any hot beverage, the poor wives vanish, leaving behind their outlines, names, and the manner in which they departed Henry's company.
  • Anne Boleyn and Kathryn Howard were executed. Catherine of Aragon and Anne of Cleves got divorced. Jane Seymour died. And Katherine Parr was the lucky winner by being widowed. This is one amazing mug, and is sure to fascinate you every time.
  • 10 oz. mug. Heat changing mugs are microwave safe, but not dishwasher safe.
  • From the Unemployed Philosophers Guild. Don't worry. We are employed, just not as philosophers. We're a small, Brooklyn based company specializing in gifts for the sophisticated gift giver. For whatever you need, we have presents of mind.

Product description



Brought to You by The Unemployed Philosophers Guild

The origins of the Unemployed Philosophers Guild are shrouded in mystery. Some accounts trace the Guild's birth to Athens in the latter half of the 4th century BCE. Allegedly, several lesser philosophers grew weary of the endless Socratic dialogue endemic in their trade and turned to crafting household implements and playthings. (Hence the assertions that Socrates quaffed his hemlock poison from a Guild-designed chalice, though vigorous debate surrounds the question of whether it was a "disappearing" chalice.)

Others argue that the UPG dates from the High Middle Ages, when the Philosophers Guild entered the world of commerce by selling bawdy pamphlets to pilgrims facing long lines for the restroom. Business boomed until 1211 when Pope Innocent III condemned the publications. Not surprisingly, this led to increased sales, even as half our membership was burned at the stake.

More recently, revisionist historians have pinpointed the birth of the Guild to the time it was still cool to live in New York City's Lower East Side. Two brothers turned their inner creativity and love of paying rent towards fulfilling the people's needs for finger puppets, warm slippers, coffee cups, and cracking up at stuff.
