This is a mug shaped the Drooling Bastard (a crude Tiki made of volcanic rock, holding a bowl, with water trickling out of his mouth and into the bowl). It is based on the original fountain sculpture at the Tonga Hut which is the mascot for the Loyal Order of the Drooling Bastard. 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. Previous editions were manufactured by Taboo Island but this was made by Eekum Bookum. Back lettering is slightly different with "Tonga" lettering in horizontal instead of vertical as on previous versions. This edition was available only in Palm Springs from June 29th-July 1st. It has a yellow interior and yellow water in bowl with a fade from bottom to top that goes from dark orange to lighter orange and yellow at top. Part of a Palm Springs Mucho Caliente set for the weekend that features similar fade edition of the August Holland Pearl of Wisdom and the Caliente Tropics mugs. This version of the Drooling Bastard is distinct from the earlier orange edition with blue water.
