"World War II was won by superior American staples. We're not saying that just because we make and sell them."

The personal bonus: Bostitch is a company from my home state of Rhode Island.

What about the mighty paper clip? Surely no supply order could have survived intact without one?

Staples are fine, but in my travels I have found getting a reliable stapler is more difficult.

I've heard that complain many a time over the decades, Patty, and found that in 99.7% of the time the people complaining have never been properly trained on the use of the staplers they've been using. 😜

Operator error, oh no!

Staplers should be registered and limited to officially designated, trained personnel only, because untrained, unregistered staple-operators could, you know, put someone's eye out with that thing.

"Office"-ially designated. SWIDT? :/

Half-a-million googlits for "stapler accidents" ... o geez, "Accident w/ Pneumatic air Stapler"!...
