Genius...pure genius...

Now, we've all been using coffee mugs for years. Everyone knows this. But all coffee mugs have had an inherent problem that no one ever talks about. It's the elephant in the room whenever you're drinking coffee. It's like that mom on 20/20 who had no upper lip and no one said anything, but everyone knew about it.

What is the problem with coffee mugs, you ask? Below is a standard mug:

Now, as you can see, the handle curves in. That means, to hold the mug, you either have to have your pinkie finger outside of the handle, or squeeze your little fingie in there and have it be uncomfortable and go numb, possibly getting gangrene or frostbite and then falling off. All because some adwizard couldn't come up with a functional mug, like the one below:

Now, as you can see, the handle curves down, so all fingers can easily fit. It's a dream for coffee drinkers. You have not drank a cup of coffee until you've drank a cup with all your fingers comfortably fitting in the mug handle.

Why is this kind of mug just coming out? Why wasn't this the first handle invented? Seriously? Why??
