Staple No More ?

Postby Bwis53 » Fri Oct 31, 2008 9:31 am

I didn't really notice, as I hurriedly grabbed my Isthmus, off Sentry's stack. Didn't even notice as I flipped over to ads.

Then, this morning, as I sat in the bathroom, it fell apart in my lap and started sliding onto the floor.

I like the staples. They help keep messy life neater.

You must have picked up a bad one.
The copy I have here is stapled nice and neat.

Honey If you need to read in the bathroom, it is time for more fiber.

No, if it was the New York Times, then I'd need more fiber. We had a thread some time ago, on what reading matter do you bring into the bathroom?

(I'll happily jump in front of this threadjack)

The copy I picked up was staple-free, too.

Mine was staple-less, or stapless for short.

That's my one contention with the Onion, shit always slides apart without the staples. I'll be reading an Isthmus on the bike or the treadmill and its all good, switch over to the Onion and its likely to cause a gym accident.

And who doesn't read in the bathroom? Wtf.

It I try to read in the bathroom my dog barks at me and my cat tries to get in my lap. Forget it.

That's not the point, and you're not chastising this time honored tradition! Animals in the bathroom are a whole separate issue.

Glad to hear from so many regular readers. ;p

There was an issue at the printer, and part of the Isthmus print run was moved to a press without stitching capability. Sadly. Should be fixed this week. Stay tuned.
