Some background first. We have a policy about coffee mugs at D Magazine. One day, walking through the halls, Wick got sick of seeing so many different mugs that people brought from home. All the logos and colors and shapes and sizes! He would return order to the universe. And so he issued an edit: only official D-logo coffee mugs in the office. The penalty for those who violate the policy? We’re not sure. Because before Wick ever sees an unsanctioned mug, it somehow finds its way to the office of one of our designers, Kelly Murphy. Kelly owns an impressive collection of very butch action figures. They do things to the coffee mugs, unspeakable things, and then leave behind photographs of their exploits, which Kelly e-mails to the company as a warning.
Well, Kelly’s action figures have kidnapped my worthless 2006 Katie. Here are the photos they took last night. Truly shocking. (To enlarge them and be even more shocked, open images in a new window.)
