I don't know but I read an old thread where Neily had found some very odd colored staples from Ebay.. He was so enthusiastic, maybe he is knowledgeable in the stapler trivia department!

Anyways, after a bit of reserch( ;D),
I found that the first stapler in history was in 18th century, France. It was made for King Louis XV.

→Staples for the fastener were manufactured by the P.N. Mfg Co. in several sizes: 3/16 inches, inches, 3/8 inches, and inches.

The stapler as we use it today was invented by John Munford in the mid 20th century, an Englishman who sold it to his employer for a small profit and was never officially recognized for his creation.

I thought that was the funniest thing...can you imaging clicking a pic for ebay to sell a table and not realizing you have inadvertantly caught your own naked image in a mirror on the wall behind he table!  Definitely a man selling the table, or at least taking the picture.
Very very funny! made me laugh so hard!!!
