Early Christmas present from my daughter...

She’s my little clone.  We have exactly the same sense of humor and outlook on the world.  Got my gift this morning.  Some will get the significance 🤣

    ... and for the rest of us, you'll have to explain it. I just see a standard stapler.

    My wife says I'm snarky at times. My oldest sister has to have "knock-knock" jokes explained to her. My other sister generally gets it with little explanation. My niece, OTOH...same sense of humor as me. Gets it every time and gives back equally.

    We are both lucky to have someone like that in our life.

    Yes we are.  My son is close but my daughter is a clone.  So is my younger sister.  We joke with each other how easy life would be if we just lived with each other.  It would be like living with myself!

    I digress, but the guy pictured above is a GREAT character actor.  If you don't believe me, just compare his role in the film posted above with the out of control judge in a few episodes of Justified.

    BTW, Enzo, it's good that someone explained it.  It probably would have kept up (at least from my afternoon nap). :smile:

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    He is and his range is huge.  I loved him in Justified, he did a great job in "True Blood" and he was REALLY funny in "News Radio" years ago too.

    Funny thing is that Swingline didn't make red full-size staplers until after that movie got popular.  Otherwise they were all grey or blue.  The way they got a red stapler for the movie was with spray paint.

    That’s true!  And IIRC it kind of revived sales of staplers for them too.

    Swingline did make red staplers decades before that. BUT....they were very small and used mostly in the tailoring trades. My sister still has her early 60's one. But granted, I've never actually seen a full-sized red Swingline.

    Did you catch Stephen Root's performances in the HBO / Tom Hanks Mini-series 'Earth to the Moon' or the movies 'Oh Brother, Where art Thou' or 'DodgeBall'?

    Enzo, the real question is: why do you remind your daughter of Milton Waddams?

    Stephen Root is one hell of an actor and a great comedian as well

    as an aside- I worked in an office across the street from the office that Mike Judge filmed “Office Space” in. Mike Judge got a lot of inspiration for the movie from being an Intern at Motorola at the same time my brother worked there (not in the same area).

    That reminds me of the industrial computer outfit I worked for many years ago. We moved/re-arranged every 6 months whether we needed to or not!
    As for swingline stapelers, I have a white one.

    More information than we need to know, thanks! 

    Never heard anyone refer to it as a 'stapeler' before,  but UBU!
