Does A Stapler Really Need To Be Sexy?

This is a black patent leather stiletto. A fuck-me pump. A whore hiker if you will. Or is it?

That's right, reader, it's a friggin stapler! From Staples! Shame on you Staples.

I love office supplies. And I love Staples. But I was shocked to see this in the store the other day.

Isn't it enough that images like this inundate us on a daily basis, in those crap ass magazines and on the red carpet? Women in their micro mini's and corsets that suffocate their boobage, advertising and promoting skankification to little girls saying, "One day Melissa you can look cheap, tawdry and trashy just like we do and then boys will like you."

Can I not go to my local Staples and buy an f'in stapler? A metal, old school stapler, and not a coos-sluttnicky high-heeled stapler? Is there nowhere to run? And to think, I was going to register at Staples, if I ever got married again. Well, you can kiss that shit good-bye. 

It confuses me.

I want to buy my office supplies at Staples and my hooker hikers at a shoe store. Is that so much to ask?

Good point...just another example of the oversexualization of our society. Those of us with daughters must be vigilant!

Holy crack-a-moly, I thought you were kidding! Insane!


Deanna @ The Unnatural Mother said...

I agree 100%!!!

Mamawolfe- That's exactly how I saw it. What were they thinking? That sex sells staplers?!

Oh, I was NOT kidding Sharon. That's the tragedy.

Thanks Deanna.

Now I've seen everything. Yikes!

Omg, hilarious! Who would buy that? I prefer the old school heavy metal swingline myself, something a little retro, no plastic crap.

You should have seen my face when I saw the coffee mug with boobs on it (and very red-pink nipples) in a small store in Tarpon Springs, Florida.

I didn't know about this idiot sexy-shoe-stapler until now. Can you wear it? Maybe it's good for stapling those difficult to staple stacks of paper.

What I want to know is, who DOES think that is awesome? Who went to staples and saw that and said, "That's so fun, I totally want that on my desk!"

thegirlfriendmom said...

Mauishopgirl- I agree. Thanks for stopping by and following.

Sadie- What everyone needs... a boobie mug!

Leah Marie- I DO NOT want to know those people who would want that on their desk. Can you really take that person seriously?

Kathy said...

I too thought you were kidding when I read the title of this! It reminds me of the time a politician was handing out nail files at a grocery store to all the "little women" who were doing their marketing!

thegirlfriendmom said...

That's pathetic... nail files. What is wrong with people?!

SoCal Tess said...

HAHA!! I thought it was a shoe at first. That is insane. Who would actually put that on their desk?! Your blog is awesome. I'm a new BloggyMoms follower and look forward to your future posts!
