This kind of looks like a caricature of Albert Einstein if he was in full "tard mode" but why anyone would think that he'd end up with paper clips attached to his head is kind of beyond us. That said, though, if you want to keep your paper clips all in one place, this magnetic holder will definitely get the job done with a big splash of personality. It will hold traditional metal paper clips, and the magnet is strong enough to get through the plastic on coated clips as well. Maybe you need one. Or don't. Honestly, we find this so bizarre that our own personal jury is out on this.
