Paper Clip vs. Staple

who would win in a fight?

i bet you're thinking it's staple. i mean, the staple is specifically designed to be sharp enough to pierce through a stack of paper. paper clip, on the other hand, just hugs the paper like a scared little girl squeezing her daddy's leg.

here's what you're overlooking though: with a little bit of bending, paper clip has also been known to pick locks. that kind of nefarious activity must have landed paper clip in the clink, where it would have spent years lifting weights and toughening up just to survive. after all of that, would a puny staple even have a chance against the hardened criminal that is paper clip? no way. paper clip wins (and ends up back in prison for assault).

BBQ Trivia

the other day, i learned something really interesting from a radio commercial for syphilis. according to the ad, st. louis consumes more barbeque sauce than any other city in the united states.

you may be asking yourself, "what does that have to do with syphilis?" unfortunately, i can't help you. i don't even know for sure what syphilis is, but apparently it's also very popular in st. louis. i'm not surprised, considering they advertise for it on the radio. they kept saying how easy it is to get, but i couldn't actually figure out where to get it from. as far as i can tell, your best bet is to check for syphilis at the grocery store next to the barbeque sauce.
