This kissable coffee cup is the most terrifying thing you’ll see all day

Talk about ugly mugs…

Threatening to do for the caffeine guzzling industry what this monstrosity did for the selfie stick world, here’s a coffee cup complete with a kissable pair of lips plonked on the top.

The brainchild of Korean designer Jang Wooseok (and available in a variety of colours), the “kiss” coffee cup lid is aimed at the takeaway market for those who want a smooch on the go while sinking down the good stuff.

Why, you ask? "Take-out coffee is a symbol of city culture and fashion," says Wooseok, adding that the "shape of a lip is a distinctive style, thereby the combination will be fun."

Yeah, fun – until drinking from the cup in front of bemused commuters, suddenly making you feel like Ryan Gosling in Lars and the Real Girl, but at least that plastic significant other had more features and a real sense of style. She was a catch compared this soulless trout pout.

For now, however, it remains a concept that we’re sure one day, thanks to some surprise investor (Mick Jagger? Angelina Jolie?) might become a terrifying reality. 

No Frenching though. The contents may be hot.
