Turns out it was my gift from fullfact.org, for supporting them. Furthermore, unlike many such gifts, it was something fun and useful.
First the mug. Pretty standard fare for a supporter’s gift, but actually quite a nice mug, not a cheap and nasty one.
Second a set of stickers. Presumably these are to stick on anything you consider suspect: “Disproven zombie claim”, “Please show your working”, “Citation Needed” and – my favourite – “That stat doesn’t mean what you think it means”.
Finally, a small stick of rock; which is exactly what I needed for my mid-morning sugar slump. But even that was witty, with a legend “Sugar coated information is hard to swallow”. But not the rock – nom nom nom.
All in all, this little package made my morning, and just goes to show that fact checking can be fun, too!
