Once upon a time, a Navy Diver was sitting around on a stage without much to do but sit, wait, and think about the meaning of life and other deep things like that.
His mind wandered with the bubbles and his thoughts quickly turned to what he was going to do that evening. He was getting bored going out to the same old bars and drinking out of the same old regular glasses.
On top of that, the sweet logo on his coffee mug had worn off ages ago, not to mention the pathetically small capacity. On light days where he only drank one pot meant at least 8 trips up from his desk.
Sure they got the job done, but where was the style?
Then one day, he had an idea. A wonderful, new, impossible idea. What if he could not only work in a diving helmet but drink out of one as well! With determination in his eyes, he set off to make the first of it's kind.
It would be a cup worthy of divers the world over who wanted to drink the world under.
After months of planning and designing, it was ready! The first sighting of the Deep Six Mug - the mug to end all mugs!
Proud of the accomplishment, he showed the designs off to all of his diver friends and the response was extraordinary. They wanted to know how it worked, so he showed them how you could drink out of the helmet's 16oz capacity or place all three parts together in an 8" tall monument to the divers of old.
They couldn't wait to have a mug of their very own and neither could he! But wait they must, because Poseidon wasn't done forging them in his dark furnace right here in America.
He told all of them that if they wished to be of the very first to claim one of their own, they could donate to the project and he would gladly reward them, give them updates on the project, answer their questions, and let them know as soon as the mugs had left bottom and were ready to be delivered!
