    Tipping off rounds?

    If you had something round that you wanted to make tippy, how would you go about that? I'm inspired to ask based on recent threads.

    Actually, if you think about it, round things are already pretty tippy. I mean, balls are always rolling all over the place, and when a ball rolls, it's basically tipping over again and again in an endless cycle.

    Woah, that blows my mind.

    define 'tippy?' You talking lopsided? Weeble-wobble but don't fall down? I'd stick some chewing gum on it

    I get my boss tipsy on our monthly staff meeting (mimosas FTW) She's also kind of round. Does that count?

    I can make my boss tipped off pretty easily ... I just explain how to do something more efficiently. But it's generally not a good idea to tip off the boss, and that's my tip for you.

    I like it when the bartender tops off our round of shots.

    I think I might just get a bit tippy and run round the block saying absurd things
