Guest from Atlanta, Georgia about  Freudian Slippers:
Title: Freudian Slippers
I really love my Freudian Slippers. As far as slippers go, I wouldn't want a mother pair; I mean another pair.

Guest from Portland Oregon about  Buddha Little Thinker:
Title: Buddha
I used to buy three of these guys at a time and give them away as gifts. I even got the little guy tattooed on my ankle. The serene, contented little face makes everyone smile. But, I am sad to say that the last three I ordered were terrible. They don't look the same anymore at all. The proportions on the face are different and they are just not cute to me at all. I sent them back to you guys and then you sent me three more that looked just as un-cute. You have definitely changed something about the manufacture of the Buddha and I don't like the new ones. If you look at your records, you'll see I've probably ordered 20 Buddhas from you in the past, but have stopped because I am not satisfied with the new ones. I hope you make them look like they use to!

May from Regina CA about  Disappearing Cheshire Cat Mug:
Title: neat but.....
Apr 29, 2012
LOVED this mug. Such a nice design. Used once, noticed some letters were missing after wash (followed directions). Was hesitant to use it again, as I love it. The second time I used it, I washed in cool water with minimal soap, no cloth on the outside, but when I rinsed, lost half of the pattern. So good mug I guess if you never use it.
I was pretty dissatisfied.

     UPG RESPONSE: If you don't soak the mug for a long time it really does last for years. call us and we'll send you a new one.

Guest from California about  Freudian Slippers:
Title: Freudian Slippers
It was the great Emanuel Kant - or was it Paris Hilton? - who said, warm feet, warm heart. This axiom holds true today as it did in days of yore. These Freudian slippers got the good laugh we were hoping and were so attractive that all our other slippers were left with their tongues hanging out. These slippers may be for the feint of heart, but not for the Jung at heart.

Guest from US about  Disappearing Cheshire Cat Mug:
Title: Cheshire Cat Mug
I loved this mug...bought it at Alice's store in Oxford UK. I did catch the 'don't put in dishwasher', but even rinsing with the least bit of hot water melts the design :""( I can recommend it with the caveat to wash in cool water.

Joe Sullivan about  Relativity Watch:
Brilliant watch. Just received it in the mail. I love it, very, very cool! Oh yea and one other thing, By Unknown from Rotterdam: I think your mathematical mind is over thinking the problem. Did you consider the, e in place of the 8 is because the WORD for 8 starts with an 'e'ight?? eight

Amanda from Shaker Heights, OH about  Disappearing Cheshire Cat Mug:
Title: Disappearing Cheshire Cat Mug
Jul 3, 2012
I never put my mug in the dishwasher. I really loved it, but I did leave it overnight in a basin of cold dish water, which caused everything but the cat to float away the next morning. Why don't you tell people not to leave it in water of any kind?

     UPG RESPONSE: Our mugs are not dishwasher safe, and also can't be soaked in water. (Not holding up to soaking in water is why they're not dishwasher safe.) We state this clearly on each mug box and in a piece of paper inserted into every mug.

Guest from USA about  TARDIS Mug:
Title: watch the tardis peel away
Although it is an amazing gift for your avid doc who fan there is a malfunction to the cup that made me sad, when prior I was all smiles while drinking my morning coffee from it. The lovely design on the cup can easily peel off if left in hot water for more than a minute. It is very unfortunate that my gorgeous tardis filled sky is slowly falling off my cup.

Guest from 3801 about  Sisyphus Watch:
Title: Rock Extol
This watch is a subtle reminder to not let the grind get to you. I mean, jeez, i could have had my liver eaten by an eagle every day. We Sisyphusians have it good comparatively.

Guest from cambridge, uk about  Math Mug:
Title: Wrong Formula
The representation of Einstein's general theory of relativity formula on the mug is wrong. It should be either G=8piT when using geometrized units or G=(8piG/c^4)T.

Dave Marulli from Rochester, NY about  Wonderland Watch:
Title: Great Customer Service Related To This Watch
Jun 12, 2012
We live in Western NY, on the shores of Lake Ontario. My college aged daughter, a huge Alice In Wonderland fan, purchased the Wonderland Watch at a store in California.

A little over a year later, the clasp on the band cracked and she could no longer wear the watch.

I contacted the Unemployed Philosophers Guild’s Customer Service department to see if I could get a replacement band. Paul told me "I have one right here…I'll send it out today."

A few days later when the package arrived, I was surprised to find not just a band, but a replacement watch!

I couldn’t be happier with the service I received and my daughter couldn’t be happier to know that she has a brand new Wonderland Watch, as well as a spare in case something happens to the new one.

We will surely be keeping the Unemployed Philosophers Guild in mind the next time we need to purchase a gift.

Thanks Paul!

Paul Barger about  Friedrich Nietzsche Watch:
Story: a couple of years ago I purchased this Nietzsche watch. It's cute. It says "eternal return of the same," which also revolves around the face. Kinda clever; good conversation starter. Well, shortly after getting it, I started to notice that it didn't keep time very well. First a few minutes behind, then more, eventually 20-30 minutes behind over a week... bought a new battery, same thing. So it's just sat here on my dresser all of this time, staring back at me with the incorrect time.

The thing is: I'd throw it out except for the fact that it's totally appropriate that it doesn't keep time. What is time to Nietzsche! Dysfunctional watch or meta-clever philosophical device to employ one to confront one's delusions about time itself?! You decide.

Jennifer from Colorado Springs about  TARDIS Mug:
Title: BIGGER ON THE INSIDE
Jan 11, 2013
I received a mug as a gift, but it was cracked inside and leaked water. I contacted customer service and they immediately sent a new one! It arrived today and I immediately made tea and watched the TARDIS disappear on one side, then reappear on the other! Also, the mug LOOKS small, but it's actually BIGGER ON THE INSIDE!!

Guest from Washington State about  Disappearing Liberties:
Title: Personal Opinion
People need to be aware the Patriot Act is still out there and a threat to everyone's civil liberties. This is a great way to start conversations about the need to write your congress person and senator to repeal this most UnAmerican of acts.

Guest from Nebraska, unfortunattely about  Democratic Dream Mug:
Title: Still Hopefu!
As a familly who have been Republicans since the Civil War and who are fiscally conservative and socially liberal, the turning of the Republicans into the old Dixiecrats under the Bushes has made us Democrats. We are still Obamamites.

Guest from Toronto about  Nikola Tesla Finger Puppet:
Title: Teslarific
Tesla is possibly the greatest Croat that ever lived, so who would not love this puppet. Definitely he has the advantage of relative obscurity, at least as compared to Edison. As with all the finger puppets, it is colourful and durable and is a great educational tool.

Guest from Charleston, SC about  Edgar Allan Poe Little Thinker:
Title: Love it!
I teach English 102 (college freshmen), and I bought Little Poe as a way to help them learn more about one of my favorite authors (and a staple on the final exam!). So far, Poe has visited two different English classes, to widely enthusiastic student both times. At first, they eye "Lil' Poe" (as we call him), and are unsure as to why I brought in a stuffed animal of sorts. But then, when we start our discussion and lecture, and I start explaining Poe's biography, they all want to see him. After passing him around, they figure out the raven is detachable, and soon enough, he's won all of them over. As I said, I've been able to use him as a teaching tool in two of my past English classes, and in both of the student reviews I've gotten from those classes, the students have overwhelmingly noted that "Poe Day" was their favorite day in my class...and I know Lil' Poe was a huge contributing factor to the success of Poe Day. Thanks Unemployed Philosophers' Guild for providing an adorable figure that can at once indulged my English nerdiness AND capture the hearts of 50+ rambunctious college freshmen!

Guest from Chicago's North Shore about  Sigmund Freud Finger Puppet:
Title: An Excellent Listener
In a rather Gestalt fashion, I tell Sigmund what's on my mind, and he offers some of the wisest, most common sense understandings, interpretations I could hope for. He does so with a inconsistent Yiddish/German dialect ('Vell...you zee you are overseeing zumpting here'). Has yet to ask for any fees and has yet to keep me vaiting...er waiting. He can be remarkably generous in observing my hard work, and brutally honest when needed. Otherwise, would like to see Freud's face a bit more artfully crafted. The nose isn't right at all. and the hair needs to have some "hair" to it (balding in front & center). Would then offer-up as gifts to neurotic friends! ron.kolman@gmail.com

Guest from Wisconsin about  Democratic Dream Mug:
Title: A Joyous Mug
I got this for my very republican friend because that's the kind of person I am. First reaction was very satisfactory, but then backfired as he now delights in cheering for each state which turns back to red. This being said, a great amount of joy has been had from this and so it was well worth the cost.
