Where have all the beer mats gone?

Is it just me or does there seems to be a lack of beer mats around. During the last week I've been in several pubs in town and none of them have beer mats on the tables anymore. Why is this? Is there some new EU Directive banning them? I'm assuming they're gone on hygiene reasons, as they must be covered in germs and bacteria. If anyone knows for certain then please let me know.

It's just not the same, I remember having great fun playing with them: making a 'house of cards', or seeing how many you can put in your mouth, not to mention playing frisbee with them. And how much satisfaction did you get from peeling the top layer off in one complete sheet? Bring back the beer mats, they are sorely missed!

You forgot to mention the potential for putting promotional stickers on the backs of beer-mats. Happy days.

So I did, and I've finally refined the stickers so that they actually fit the beer mats too. No more tearing the corners off; and it was all for nothing!
