Staplermofo: Another stapler question inspired by Shazzoir's 08:08:43 photograph...

Just what the heck is the "stapler spreader" setting used for on your standard desk stapler?

Everyone in the office knew how the deathmatch would end...

It's so you can pull the staple out easily.

I find staplers to be the most erotic of all office supplies.

Thanks to Mariser for suggesting it. I had planned on a love scene but left my medium stapler at work.

BTW, I hosted this on flickr.com. Under the TOS, I am supposed to href to flickr on the pictures. I am too lazy but here's their free advertising.

It too is a stapler remover. It actually works as good, if not better than the traditional pincher kind...it's less damaging to the paper.

It's made by Swingline (who else). Pretty spiffy.

/sorry....long day at work, just now checking back, lots more to do too.

In many years, the Japanese will wonder how stapler pron came to displace their tentacles...
