Suppose you saw an ad like this:

"World famous sculpture! Miniature, pocket sized copy of a celebrated work of art, seen by thousands of people on a big city college campus!

The gentle curving lines of this well-known wire sculpture, the original of which is over twenty feet tall, can be yours for an unbelievable price! Not only is it beautiful to look at, this device is highly useful in a number of amazing ways!

A special purchase makes this fabulous offer open to you for only $10.99! Buy one for yourself and another for a gift, only $20.00 for two!"

Would you send in your hard-earned money?

If not, why not?



Answer

Don't part with your money for this one! What you will receive is a small envelope containing an ordinary paper clip!

"But wait," you say; "What about the sculpture on the college campus?"
A seven meter high replica of a paper clip was erected at the campus of a college near Oslo, Norway.

And how is it useful? Well, of course, it can hold pieces of paper together. It can also be used to reset certain electronic devices, repair umbrellas, or even hang Christmas ornaments!

But you can buy a whole boxful of these at the dollar store!
