Have you ever kissed a loved one and wished that hot coffee would come pouring out of their mouth and into yours?
Probably not. But one Korean designer wants to simulate that weird fantasy.
As Mashable writes:
Created by designer Jang Woo-Seok, the custom lid gives the illusion that you're drinking piping-hot coffee poured through the lips of another person. And who doesn't want that?
Woo-Seok thought up the design after noticing that existing coffee lids lacked flair of any kind. In an email with Mashable, Woo-Seok explained that while coffee can be obtained every day, you aren't always guaranteed a kiss. This lid aims to solve that problem.
"So I created it for my sexual desire. Just kidding," Woo-Seok added, aware of the design's peculiar nature.
That's not a very funny joke.
Woo-Seok describes it further on his Behance site:
Different from the other coffee lids which have a usual hole to put a straw or to drink directly, Take 'Kiss' Out looks like a human face. Therefore, a coffee drinker experiences a visually funny and emotionally different coffee-drinking when drinking.
Take-out coffee is a symbol of city culture and fashion.
Shape of a lip is a distinctive style, thereby the combination will be fun.
Yeesh. If you say so.
Say goodbye to the "hot pizza burn" -- researchers at the University of New Mexico (a city known for chemistry) have created a dissolving oral strip that gives immediate relief and healing to a scalded mouth.
Coffee, tea, pizza, or Hot Pocket, let no temperature stand in your way ever again. These need to come out ASAP.
