Uh, coffee is disgusting - if I had some, I'd actually pay others to drink it instead of killing them.

I could do with a mug like that that says 'tea', but then again here in the UK we're too polite to threaten violence. We'd probably just be mildly irritated and make ourselves another cup.
Umm... Tea is serious business. I would be surprised if the British didn't start a war over tea at some point. Very surprised.

Come to think of it, wasn't tea what the British wanted in the opium wars?

Among other things (e.g. silk), yes. And then there is this one, minor historic occurrence our American friends on here might be familiar with - Boston Tea Party?

I consciously avoided that one And the tea wasn't the main object of that skirmish...

That's right! If you want to start something, hit em where it hurts! Tossing the King George bobble heads just wouldn't have had the same effect!

The back of the recently announced Pentax KS-2 shows a maaassive Pentax slogan, no other brand name is to be found on the body. Is that the end of the hociR?! Or just another step in their sinister plan?

The Pentax logo will likely fall off after light use to reveal the hociR beneath!

When you turn it on, the splash screen is a large hociR logo that displays for a minimum of 30 seconds.

You bet it's another sinister step in their sinister plan! Take a look at that diagram showing all the weather seals... No seal on that logo. It'll turn into the mark of the hociR at the first sight of most air! Sinister indeed!

If the Pentax logo is replaced, (and I doubt it - the Hocir executives will have taken notice of this thread!) it will be a simple matter of always having the articulated screen turned outwards.

Seems to me that the massive pentax logo on the back is an apology for the K-3 mess up. Hopefully, they've really learned their lesson, and the evil hociR won't appear on the magical unicorn either.
