The Blue Stapler

Since Sundays are usually a little more laid-back in Blogland, I'll post the latest funny Craigslist ad.

If you're new to my blog, you may not know that I live in the Texas Hill Country, near Austin. Austin's Craigslist ad posters are a funny lot, and though I admit to finding great deals on CL, I sometimes read the ads just for fun.

Below are actually two ads posted for the same "Amazing Blue Stapler." First ad:
Amazing Blue Stapler (Austin)

This stapler was given to me at a Ford event a couple of years ago. The nice thing about it is that it is small, light weight and easy to travel with. The dimensions are 2 1/2 inches X 1 inch X 1 1/2 inch.

Also comes with about 25 staples.

I am open to almost anything for a trade. If you need more pictures please let me know. I have plenty!!





Second ad:
Amazing Blue Stapler more pictures...
I had a few emails regarding my post wanting to trade my blue stapler for something else.

The main request was to see the stapler in action so here it is. As you can see this stapler can easily slice through at least 3 pieces of paper.

What do you have to trade? please send a picture as well.





Could you show me how to work that stapler again? And I didn't quite catch the color.

I can see how this little blue stapler can become this year's red paperclip. I have a whole bunch of junk in my garage. Wonder what I could trade?

That is just about the funniest thing I have ever seen, heard of, or read. Did you ever hear Jeff Foxworthy's song a few years back called, "Where's your sign"?
'Nough said. : )

P.S. I'll bet that was suppose to be ('nough said). So by now you're probably thinking, "Where's YOUR sign?"

Don't worry...it's on my desk at home. : )

That's hysterical. You're so right about it being the next red paperclip.

Hello from Canada! What colour is the stapler remover? Is it super charged as well? Is it as cute? Your blog is fab.

Once again I say: Only in Austin! LOL

Now if that had been a Longhorn Orange stapler, I'm sure it'd been grabbed up immediately...
