"I Believe You Have My Stapler..."

I got a new stapler.

It's a red Swingline 747, the Nicole Kidman of Staplers. Apparently, I'm not the only one excited about having a new red Swingline 747.

My Stapler

Rumor has it, while making The Movie, Mike Judge wanted Milton's stapler to be red. However, Swingline, the Microsoft of stapler manufacturers, did not make a red model. So, Mike took a black one and hand-painted it red himself. Then, after The Movie, Swingline was inundated with demands for a red model. So, they started making them. The Red Swingline has now become the best selling stapler of all time.

Hurray for bandwagons!!
