For a taste of your whiskey, I'll give you some advice…

One of the drawbacks with working in a one-man office is that the Melbourne Cup sweepstakes are a bit of a dud. I mean, on the plus side, I got every single horse in the office sweepstakes! Hurrah! I even got the winner and for a moderate $100, I’ll even let you know who it is*.
On the minus side, the thrill of the race is somewhat subdued. More irritatingly, after administrative expenses, I end up winning less money than I put in.
Bah. Humbug.
Stupid equines, only good for eating. Given the amount of steroids in the average racing nag, they’re probably not even good for that.
