This new addition to my collection is my comment to the younger generations. Fortunately, my nieces and nephews and their children have all been exposed to Elvis's music simply because they live in this family. Some aren't so lucky. This mug is smaller than most of my Elvis mugs, but still quite suitable for coffee or tea. It's a new and "in your face" message, though, and I like it!! It's microwave safe, but don't put it in your dishwasher unless you want the '68 Special photo to be damaged. Viva Elvis!
