Why buy this?

In a world where laughter was as valued as gold, two cows, Spots and Sunny, became unexpected heroes. They were not just any cows; they had a flair for the dramatic and a sense of humor that could make even the grumpiest bull chuckle. Spots, with her splotchy black and white pattern, and Sunny, with her bright brown and white coat, were known for their quirky antics around the farm.

One day, as dark clouds loomed ominously overhead, Spots had a bright idea. “Let’s create a series of ‘Funny Mugs,’ each with a silly spelling mistake that’ll have the whole farm cackling!” she mooed. Sunny, always game for a bit of fun, agreed immediately.

Together, they crafted a collection of mugs, each with a comically misspelled phrase. But the masterpiece of them all was a mug that boldly stated, “THS IS NOT A DRILL.” The missing ‘I’ was no accident; it was a clever nod to the playful nature of language and a statement about not sweating the small stuff—even in times of urgency.

“Why ‘THS IS NOT A DRILL’?” curious onlookers would ask. Spots would laugh, her bell jingling merrily, “Because it’s a reminder to look twice and laugh once!” Indeed, the mug became a symbol of the farm’s resilience and humor. Even as the storm clouds threatened, the cows held the sign high, a beacon of lighthearted defiance.

The Funny Mugs became legendary, not just for their humor but for their ability to bring a smile during trying times. Each mug, with its intentional misspelling, served as a prompt to find joy in imperfection and to remember that even when the skies are grey, we can choose to see the color.

And so, Spots and Sunny stood, with their sign and their mugs, reminding all that even when life seems serious and full of challenges, it’s important to take a moment to enjoy the whimsical, the imperfect, and the funny. For it’s in these moments that we often find our greatest strength and unity—and that’s no mistake.

Basically to ensure safety of your data. We delete your orders and information every six months. We do not store payment details, other than the order number. 

Using shops like Redbubble does work to some extend, but after trying it for a while it does not seem to work for us. So we created our own. We do use print on demand services and have no stock, this reduces our wastage footprint. 

Basically for “shits and giggles”, it helps us to pay for the running cost and other expenses. A misconception is that we make money with the Dayboro Lions Business Directory and/or the Events Calendar. This is NOT true, all those services are paid for by us (RDS.ink and HELP4BIS.com). 

Dayboro.au fully relies on donations and sponsorship. No income is generated by the directory or events calendar.
