April 1st might be done and over with, but that doesn’t mean you’ll have to put up a sour demeanor for the rest of the year. With this Shocking Pen, you can definitely get a few laughs in as you see curious colleagues pick up a pen that doesn’t belong to them only to receive a shock of their life!
The victim will then pick up the pen, and, without even a nub of conscious motion, their thumb will immediately migrate to depress the top of the pen in hopes of discovering a fine new writing instrument. Instead, as they depress, they will complete a circuit that creates a small magnetic field, which then simulates an alternating current and provides relatively high voltage to the depression point on the thumb. It all happens in a split second, as will the screech and instant profanity, but the office memories will last a lifetime…
It would be cooler if this pen actually contained some ink to write, but nevertheless it is the perfect “welcoming” trick for any new person to the office. $5.99 for some quick laughs (at other people’s expense) sounds like a pretty good bargain.
