What is the point of all these toys that give you an electric shock? I just don't get it. I remember licking batteries and getting your friend to touch an electric fence but why have a toy that does it?
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... Please note, this pen does not actually write as it contains no ink nor an appropriate tip to dispense said ink. So, I suppose we should have called it a 'Shocking Mock Pen' instead of a 'Shocking Pen' - but, oh well - you'll forgive us, right? To make you feel better we'll tell you that it's about 5.5 inches tall. Oh, and it's not for children. This is an adult novelty toy.
