(a tinnie=) a game in which a group of people jump on top of each other to form a pile

That's also a nice one, if you just think of the Canon-fanbois and the Nikon-fanbois in this forum doing something like that :lol: :lol: :lol:

Oh and btw:If you use [offtopic] in the off-topic forum, that means off-off-topic, so your're actually on-topic?! Or is this not a recursive definition :?:

Tinnies are cans of beer. It's an Australian expression, not Scots. Here we'd probably refer to a carry-oot, lol.
