Fence Sitters

16.  Cuprinol Trade

Sitting on a fence is a man who looks up to his guardian
Sitting on a fence is a man who swings from poll to poll
Sitting on a fence is a man who sees both sides of both sides
Sitting on a fence is a man who…. is all things to all men

(Copyright: (mostly) Paul Heaton, The Housemartins: 1984)

But if that fence were treated with Cuprinol, at least he wouldn’t get splinters in his you-know-where….


Mugspotters brings you more genre-busting action shot entirely live & on location in your typical works kitchenette/beverage bay.
For your consideration, we give you – The Travel Mug.
Abandoned, alone and looking quite tame, our intrepid photographer thankfully managed to shoot this before its owner returned and before we had to face any embarrassing questions.
It’s a rare to spot such an exciting & exotic specimen in captivity. Initially we thought it was finished in a mottled green rainforest effect but upon closer inspection It turned out to be condensation on the mugs darkly tinted innards. (a bit like a busted double glazing unit)

Note: The mottling effect
