Always wondered why it does not spill.

Surface tension (how strong the molecules of the liquid stay together) and viscosity are what dictate how a liquiq moves. If the opening is small enough and the liquid has enough surface tension/viscosity, it cannot go through the opening, unless another force is applied to break it.
