Once again, the mighty paper clip has come to the rescue – this time for a hobbled alien robot motorcycle. As I was putting this poor fella back together from his horribly dismembered state, I realized that one of the pieces was held into place by a metal pin. Not seeing the pin, I assumed the worst – it had been lost in battle.

I was just about to resign myself to notify his next of kin regarding his lifelong limp when I remembered my friend Clippy. Maybe he could help this poor chap out. I ran to the super secret Clippy cave (drawer in the office) and sought an audience with the mighty paper clip superhero.

He graciously granted me time where I pleaded for the injured sentient two-wheeler. After a few moments of dramatic pause, Sir Clippy agreed to help and the rest is history.


The post-op procedures involved some wire cutters and a piece of tape to hold the repair in place – a small price to pay for full mobility.
