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!”
