From the Tiki Farm website:
"We proudly bring you another radical design by long time Tiki Farm friend and collaborator, Tank Standing Buffalo. Introducing our brand new “Voodoo Goddess” mug, aka “Mama May”. Tank can push the darker end of the design spectrum every now and then and we are very happy to support and promote his creative energies when he does. You probably remember Tank’s super popular “VooDude” mug which sold out very quickly. Do not miss your chance to get your hands on Tank’s newest creation shown here in a Limited Edition of 250 in a glaze variation we’ve named “Dried Blood”. Peek around the design and you’ll see fun added elements such as skulls, flickering Tiki torches, a jug of hooch, a little stuffed animal, dripping candles, and… who do you spy on the back mantle… is it… yes it is… it’s VOODUDE!"
There was also a second edition released in 2021 in "Mardi Gras Green".

To join the order, one must go to the Tonga Hut and drink every drink listed in Beachbum Berry's Grog Log (at your own pace, but within a year's time). Bastard members are rewarded with a plaque to commemorate their achievement and a special "Buck Off" coin that entitles you to a buck off all drinks for life.
