3D Printed Teeth Tea CUp on Shapeways

On Proper Usage and Inhibited Ingestion:
Why is it that we find the cup so unappetizing? Could it have originated

as a threat of life, a reminder of predator and prey, poison and
contamination?
Is this object then successful in its design to prevent gluttonous
behavior should food and drink only be offered in the cup?

    That has to be a very inconvenient cup to use. I imagine it will cause you to dribble coffee all over yourself.
