The Case of the Pen

First, let me remind you that pens are our friends.

As Edward Robert Bulwer-Lytton said, “The pen is mightier than the sword.” So consider this; why are all the pens in public places chained down?

Go into a bank and notice that all the pens are chained to a table.

Are we as a society now enslaving our pens? Nothing else at a bank is chained to a tabletop.

What if we decided to chain the tellers down? Wouldn’t OSHA step in? However, it’s perfectly acceptable to chain a pen? Is not a pen a worker of sorts?

What would we do without our favorite Bic or Scripto?

Ever try to borrow a pen from someone? Money you can have but ask for a pen and they hesitate. “Alright, but give it back right away.”

So, how are these bastards getting away with all this chaining?

I say, “Free the pens!”
