My wife is mortified that I am collecting these pint glasses from Newbury Comics featuring “toothface.”
They’ve been making them and giving them out as promotions since the North Dartmouth store opened (possibly before that in other places).
In any case, I have collected every one of the ones they’ve given out here.
You can see my full collection in this Flickr photoset. Plus a couple of glasses that aren’t from Newbury Comics, but rather were gifts from my good friend Chuck!
Yes, I do not want for interesting drinking vessels, including pint glasses. And these are just the Newbury Comics ones.
Although Maggie makes a face every time I bring a new one home, I catch her using them now and again.

Nice glasses, Burkie! I have one Newbury Comics glass myself. They're nice and solid.
Glad to see that you've still got your Plastered Dragon Inn drinking horn. I hope you and Maggie raise your ale on high once in a while and remember days of high adventure. Remember, it spits at you if you don't drink it all in one draught, like a barbarian. ;-)
The Captain's Mug! You know, I'll be honest, I have no recollection of giving that to you. But I'm glad you like it just the same.
Wait, damn, you didn't give the captains mug to me. I screwed that up. Brian gave those out to us at his wedding.
In fact, there was a small crisis, I think, regarding the gifts for the attendant gifts. We were in the D.C. area and I think the gifts had been left behind.
My memory is going. I hope I'm remembering it correctly now.
Now, please don't encourage him.
The only reason I would ever drink from one of these things is because I can't reach anything else. The whole front of the cupboard is filled with them. Ugh.
I pulled out that Thanksgiving thing today, took one look at it, put it back, and drank straight from the faucet.
And, by the way, those are some snazzy glasses, Barry.
I barely need any encouragement.
