Someone out there has a dirtier mind than I do...

...and he designs paperclips for a living.

For a little fun present, I got Mr. RK a set of airplane paperclips from the nifty Paperchase section at Borders for his birthday. (Don't worry - that wasn't the only present. He also got an ipod touch, a set of rollers so he can ride his bike indoors, and other things I can't mention here.)

During one of the birthday weekend events, our mutual friend Darth Weasel came over and saw the clips and did a double take.

Me: "What?"
Darth: "Um...where did you buy those? Because they kind of look like..."

We clipped one to a piece of paper, and it's true.

And I thought Borders was a family store...

¡Ay, Maria Santísima! That's too funny, Chica! I'd think you'd find something like that at a place like "Caiente" (a local sex shop I know little about ;) )...but Borders?? Wow! Hilarious!! :D

PS - That should've read "Caliente" as in HOT!! :)

Why, that paperclip looks like a thingee.

And by thingee, I mean penis.

I was going to write a knob for a knob but that would be rude right? Or is it British slang that means nothing to you?

No I must go and start bending a few paper clips...

Would those be "mile high" paper clips?

L: I totally want to visit that store!
H: Good point ;)
Lynn: I know, I totally missed it!
WIGSF: Yeah, I didn't see it until we clipped something, but it's obvious now.
S: Go for it!
MZ: I certainly thought so. I'd like to see what else they come up with.
Joey: That would be hilarious! And your last line cracked me up!
Libby: Maybe if the designer was Italian? :)
