    Sorry about the bad camera phone quality of this photo, but my friend is good buddies with Mike Judge and he sent me this photo last night from Mike's house. It's the clapper and screen used burnt Swingline red stapler from Office Space. I haven't seen a photo of the prop outside of the movie, so I thought I share this one, low quality though it is. I've cropped out my friend's face to protect his anonymity.

    Well, I guess that settles the pinstripe debate.

    Man, what a good friend to have. Did he wash his hands before he touched it?

    He probably had to wash them after holding it. He also sent me a photo of him holding Mike Judge's Emmy. Yeah, it's good to have friends like that!

    Ha! I would be in there sneaking all kinds of photos; me using Mike Judges toilet, me raiding his fridge, farting in his sneakers and so forth. You know, Kodak moments.

    Does he live in Texas?

    See, this is why I couldn't have a friend like Mike Judge. I would NEVER leave him along or stop bugging him with questions, and asking to see stuff.

    So, a debate long ago was whether the Swingline lettering is white or metallic. Can you put that one to rest?

    I could ask my buddy to look next time, or try to remember.

    Sorry for the necropost guys.. I didn't see much sense in creating a new thread for a single question. :p

    Does anybody by any chance know if the stapler had the 'Swingline' logo on both sides, or is it only on the right side??
    They never show the left side in the film as far as I've seen and the photo in the 1st post is the only one outside of the film that I've seen, like Jaintly said as well.

    Plus, I figured I would re-post the photo from the 1st post while I'm at it, since the link is dead. (Thanks PhotoBucket)..:rolleyes
