NSFW? What were they thinking?
I went to a presentation about using FedEx in our purchasing system. They handed out containers of cute little paper clips, shaped like airplanes. How clever! How darling! And how phallic they look when they're actually being used!

I've never heard of a CLIP-on.

Somewhere, in some promotional materials design firm, there's a couple of queens chuckling to each other, "Hey, I bet we can get FedEx to give away clip-on penises..."

Oh, that CAN'T really be quite an accident.

The paperclips themselves look like airplanes with penises! :-)

For a less phallic look, put the, ah, phallic bit behind the paper.

Perhaps a new way of sending signals to others ...

Yeah, I was thinking that I usually put paperclips in by pushing the inner loop back. These would of course look much less... unprofessional ;-)... the other way round!
