The country has admitted to ranking the quality of their guests by the standard of mug their hot drink is served in.
Business and work related guests get the top mugs, with potential friends/lovers being next, sliding down to relatives, and then ultimately tradesmen right at the bottom.
Mug psychologist, Peter Thape believes that the strength of a friendship can be measured by the mug being served with your cursory three hobnobs.
‘At the start of a friendship you’re being given the tall, weighty ones with the thick handle,’ said Thape.
‘As your friend tires of you, you’ll get the shitty one that comes with an Easter egg,’ added Thape.
