'Crabbit' Scottish Dialect Mug Description

  • Genuinely funny Scottish dialect mug
  • Quality glazed china finish
  • Dishwasher and microwave safe

Want to make friends laugh over a brew? You'll love our genuinely funny Scottish dialect mugs.

This charming mug is made from glazed china and features the Scottish dialect word 'Crabbit' along with a light-hearted definition and example sentence, which are written on a striking colour background. A second sentence starts inside of the mug and runs vertically down the back and a third sentence sits beside that.

The text on this mug reads:

'CRABBIT - Does this Scottish word derive from a marine crustacean with hard claws which can give you a good nip if it is annoyed? Who knows? It means - jaggy, bad tempered, sharp-tongued, and seriously grumpy.'

'Ye dinnae hae tae hae a face like a nippy sweetie tae be jist plain CRABBIT!”

'I'm no really crabbit'

'Did I get oot the bed the wrang side the day?'

'Crabbit' Scottish Dialect Mug Customer Reviews

This is a great little mug with very clear printing and plenty of writing on it to make it a fun conversation piece! I was really pleased to see the additional writing near the handle (I did not originally notice the second photo), which added even more entertainment value. The overall white coloration is pure with no inconsistencies that I noticed. The mug has a light feel to it that is comfortable to hold.
