I recently received some publication notices, via snail mail, from our European vendor, based in Germany. You know the one. Well, some of you know the one. Anyway.... Binding the slips together was a very interesting paper clip. Below, please find a photo of said item. I enjoy its unusual, albeit phallic, shape and its coppery color. I have never seen it for sale in an office supply store. Perhaps it is an exclusively European model. I find myself lacking the adequate vocabulary to describe it (phrases like "weird European paper clip," or "phallic paper clip" come to mind), so a Google search would be ineffective. If there are any suggestions, or if you find a trip to Europe in your near future, please let me know.
