A coaster, or beermat, is a mat used to rest glasses of beer (or other beverages) upon. Public houses usually will have them spread out across the tables. They are used not just to protect the surface of the table, but, as they are usually made out of paper, they can also be used to absorb condensation dripping along the glass or serve as an ad-hoc notepad. Beermats are often branded with alcohol advertising.

Czech President Vaclav Klaus is going viral on the Internet after making a not-so-smooth move during his visit to Chile. A video taken on 4 April shows Klaus slipping a ceremonial pen into his pocket during a news conference with his host, President Sebastian Pinera.
Czech television broadcast the video with red circles and arrows highlighting the pen. A spokesman for Klaus on Tuesday dismissed the media storm caused by the video, saying the pen was “a common pen with a logo of the state or office, which presidents and members of their delegation receive during state visits”. In fact, the pens are encrusted with semi-precious Chilean lapiz lazuili stones. However, a Pinera spokeswoman said the president’s guests were free to take them.
I think he didn't steal anything, may be, he just collects pens!?
