text: Texas Democrats are trying to score a few more laughs at Gov. Rick Perry’s expense before the potential presidential candidate leaves office. The state party is selling coffee mugs emblazoned with the outgoing governor’s mug shot—and the message “#mugshot”-- taken in August during Perry’s booking for the charges he faced for abuse of power.

Another option is the cryptic mug available at the National Security Agency’s gift shop. According to the Washington Post, a message scrawled on the side of the cup is deciphered when warm liquid is added to the mug.
