I'm sick of this CAT mug my missus makes me use

Every day my other half forces me to drink from her CAT mug :roll: I don't want the world to think I have nothing in my life other than pussy cats with pink ribbons! I want a new mug to say I am part of the best Atari ST community? I want to say thanks. Anyone have ideas for designs for the Exxos mug?
