Heard: Staple v. Paperclip

Let me set the scene. A Legislative Assistant, a Deputy Chief of Staff, and a Chief of Staff go into the Chief’s office for a closed-door meeting on an important topic. In the middle of this very important meeting, the door opens, without a knock, and in comes an intern. “Does (Congressman’s FIRST name) like his speeches stapled or paper-clipped?”

I’ve never to this day seen three hill staffers at a complete loss for words.
