Come in Spinner

Two-up is a traditional Australian gambling game, involving a designated "Spinner" throwing two coins into the air. Players gamble on whether the coins will fall with both heads up, both tails up, or with one coin a head, and one a tail (known as 'Odds'). The only time it can be legally played in pubs and clubs is on Anzac Day, in memory of the troops who played it during World War I. Bets are laid then as the kip (the piece of wood on which the coins are balanced) is raised and the coins tossed in the air the crowd yells "Come in Spinner".

Lest We Forget

They shall grow not old
as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them
nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun
and in the morning
We will remember them.
LEST WE FORGET.

For your Own Good

Overzealous OH&S has obviously got to one office wit. The newly installed cup rest is too small to fit an average coffee mug.
