Get a zipperhead mug for your coworker Paul.
A quasi-affectionate term used to describe a member of the Royal Canadian Armoured Corps (RCAC).

Derived from the fact that early Armoured soldiers seldom wore protective headgear inside their vehicles and the head injuries resulting from banging off protruberances inside the vehicles, resulted in obvious stitches and scars.
The Infantry was working closely with the Zipperheads in the latest military manoeuvres.

Get a zipperhead mug for your coworker Vivek.
This term was started during the Vietnam conflict to describe a Vietcong tactic.
After killing a GI in combat, the Vietcong split a soldier's head with a machete, then insert a live hand grenade with the pin removed. Replacing the helmet hides the booby trap.
When medics come to recover the dead, moving the body will cause the helmet to fall off and release the grenade, killing or maiming anyone in the immediate area.
Zipperhead describes the mutilation that the Vietcong inflicted on fallen soldiers.
Fuckin Zipperheads got another one of our boys.
