Inappropriate Uses for Binder Clips: Masochism

I met up with Michael Dennis and his supporters the night he launched his new book of erotic poetry. "I know something you can do with binder clips," he said. I rolled my eyes because I knew where he was going. And he went there.

I don't know what it is about these erotic poets, because Megan didn't even talk about it; she just did it. She got out her pliers, loosened up a bunch of cute pink binder clips, and then clipped them to her bare flesh for a photo.

I am sorry, but this blog cannot support this binder clip use.

(a) The edge of the metal is sharp, it could cut you.

(b) If you have to loosen the clips, what will you do when you need to hold off the onset of winter or attach reindeer antlers to your cat?

Well, my dear, obviously you need different sets of binder clips. All organized in their own special compartments. I swoon at the thought.

Also, the edges are not too sharp. For the clips to cut, you would have to have them on so tight and keep them on so long that you would suffer fairly severe bruising and probably some nerve damage before they got close to breaking skin.

Luckily, you don't have to do either of those things unless you want severe bruising and nerve damage.
