Satiric radio commentary for the 90s from the man who drained Lake Michigan and filled it with hot chocolate!!!

Paper Clip Puzzle
(1998 Version)

Stan Freberg here with a few thoughts about paper clips. I love paper clips; I mean the silver kind. Yeah, I know, there are multi-colored ones now, but the silver ones mean you're dealing with a serious paper clip. Back in a minute. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg again. As a writer, there's a great satisfaction about opening a new box of jumbo paper clips. Gotta be jumbo, though. Who has time to fool with those itsy-bitsy clips? Those are for accountants, you know. Writers use jumbo clips.

Of course, there's something intimidating about paper clips. It means there must be pages of script that need to be held together with these clips. Pages? Hmm...I'd better get busy writing something to justify the clips.

See what I mean? Just looking at a box of paper clips puts pressure on a writer. All right, I SEE you paper clips! Stop PRESSURING me!

Hmm. Thank goodness. I finished this commentary! Something to clip together!
