Women of Britain: You no longer have a reason to be caught offside!

The famous Britain-wide “pub joke” about women’s lack of understanding about the off-side rule has finally been addressed by the Royal Mint.

That is a sentence I probably never thought I’d say, but I am pleased to publicise the fact that as part of their London 2012 collection that the Royal Mint have released a 50 pence piece explaining the offside rule.

I don’t think a coin has ever amused me before now, but this is brilliant. Who knew they had such a sense of humour…
