we have all been caught on occasion, out of the office and needing to shred a small document.

with this ingenious device, you just pop the paper in your pocket and the little mashing gears go straight into action. the throb of the machinery feels rather pleasant as does the warmth generated. quite nice on a cold day and not uncomfortable even in summer.

dispose of the evidence, I mean the residual waste by shaking the bottom of your trouser leg over the cats litter tray or any nearby paper bin.

       Um, if I could have it leave from my pants behind me, you have a deal. That way I could back up to a trash can.

       i'll give this a croissant, but usually if i had to dispose of small amounts of paper on the move i'd just eat it. anything up to 50 sheets anyway.

       "What happened to your hands??"   

       "Well, I was playing pocket pool, and I...scratched."

       And I thought this would be a way to repel pocket turtles.

       you say that as if it might be the slightest bit interesting.   

       OP, you must remember to keep your hands in the right pocket, or is that the left pocket? whoops.   

       UB, I just do not believe you. what happened to all my blackmail messages? heh? heh? remember the pictures? heh?
po, Aug 03 2003
  

       did they need a laugh?
po, Aug 03 2003
  

       Oh dear, I thought this would be a device for shredding pockets and was about to ask why anyone would need to perform such a task.
