A Mug's Game.

Many moons ago I worked for a newspaper chain. Myself and two colleagues with a similarly absurd sense of humour instated a G5 Power Mac (at the time a state of the art machine) for the sole purpose of keeping a record of all the drinking vessels in the department. The types of mugs you find in workplaces made us laugh. In the interests of irrelevancy, said document will now be archived in this repository.
