Thrift Store Find!

I found this little guy a few weeks ago:
I loved the image, and immediately recognized vintage milk glass. The back says this:
!!! What?! It is so random, so funny, so cryptic! After I got it home, I did a quick search on the interwebs. It turns out this was a promotional product manufactured by a company called "Federal" for different corporations in the 50's. I even found a yellow one! I cannot imagine what the motivation for giving these out would be. Rewards for the worst idea? The "baddest guy?" Either way, there are a lot of them out there, so keep your eyes peeled, and maybe you too could own your own "I had a bad idea" mug.
