Complete with a leak-proof stand. That should punish pen thieves - plus makes them easily identifiable with a big blue stain on their shirt.

       How do you get someone to steal it? I usually use a pen before I steal it, but I wouldn’t steal it if it was leaky. Er, I mean, if I were going to steal a pen, that’s what I would do.

       Sounds like someone's been having their office supplies stolen lately.

       [AO] It would leak slowly - you wouldn't notice until your shirt pocket was in contact with it for a while.

       I see.   

       How about Post-its® with nonunstickable adhesive?

       Ha ha. My son just put one in the wash with his laundry, so I'd call this Baked.   

       Why are we all so freaked out by people stealing our pens when we get them free from the company in the first place?

       Some pens are better than other pens. I have to guard the limited - access nice Uniball pens. You can steal all the crappy ball point Papermates you want.

       Pen that leaks when separated from your bluetooth enabled desk organizer for an extended period of time.

       Missing something. Explosives? High Voltage? Something, can't quite place it, but something. Leaking ink just isn’t a strong enough message for the pen thief.

       (Wondering if Mr Burns has considered the disastrous consequences of someone stealing his desk organiser)

       :-) I'm sure his coworkers would do this constantly for kicks.

       I bolted that bastard down tight.
Mr Burns, Jun 24 2003
  

       You could have a pen with a uranium core, sheathed in a lead desk organizer. Let his own sterility teach that bastard a lesson!
