If you build it, the guy with the coffee pot will come. If you're wondering how best to attract the attention of caffeine providence, nothing says "water me with coffee!" better than a mug dressed up in Lego bricks, K'nex pieces or, well, whatever was in your cupboard to begin with.
ThinkGeek recently introduced the Build-On Brick Mug to its store, and it looks absolutely rad. Though it's essentially a giant construction set built up to look and function like a coffee mug, it's hard to refute the fact that this will make you a hit at Monday mornings - or a reason for a hit, if you know what I mean.
The $20 mug will not function terribly well with a microwave but is compatible with Lego bricks, PixelBlocks, Mega Bloks, Kre-O and K'nex. It's made out of BPA-free plastic, does not come with a bag of bricks and is not officially endorsed by the people who made the aforementioned products. It just works so very, very well.
