ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Brett's Paperclip Weapons
mmm just the thing for a mighty mouse methinks.
Definitely a Redwall-sized armory or something to outfit the Mouse Guard.
So much for my plans for in-flight paper organizing; how long ’til paper clips make the TSA ban-list?
Yeah, big deal. You give me any paper clip, I can make a rectangle with rounded corners.
The tiny weapon that looks like an eggbeater…what is that one, and how would you maim and kill with it?
A mace. Here is the real deal: http://armor.com/pole193.html
Ahso. I was thinking it could be used to froth Mexican hot chocolate.
Well, I’m a little bit in love with him for making these, so it seems they work!
Could use these to leave in mice cages in a lab, along with tiny fonted notices of the coming rebellion.
Brain could make something much more deadly out of bits of wire. A nuke, perhaps.
Pinky would bend these back into paperclips and give them names.
should set out bait traps for the Borrowers or hope they aren’t this industrious?
Single? Ya don’t say….?
These are actually quite beautiful~ :o
I want them all. Nao! I have no idea what I’d do with them though, I couldn’t display them anywhere because our horde of cats would probably attempt to eat them.
Oh, this brings me back to when my cousins and I learned how to make bows and arrows from bamboo skewers and fishing line from an uncle of ours. And then later that afternoon my cousin shot me in the foot. Nearly half an inch in penetration meant no more weapons for us.
“And, ladies, he’s single.”
Only important if he makes those weapons with his tongue.
