Say What?

It's never easy dropping truth bombs in the office. But "f" bombs? Always explosive fun! Fred Conlon's recycled steel sculpture lightens up desk-side chats and tough conversations with a delightfully abstract expletive appropriate for any situation. Handmade in Utah.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

    Purchased this gift for a coworker who let's the swears frequently. We work in cubicles so we all hear it. Very funny gift and perfect for our small spaces. Small but very heavy.

    Awesome product with lousy presentation

    The product itself is great. But the packaging it comes in is awful. A chewed up weak box that can't sustain the weight of th product. Uncommon Goods is so unique, you would expect more clever and thoughtful packaging. But, that being said, the "f bomb" itself was perfect!

      This is a really cool gift and I know the recipients will love it. It seems well-made, too. There's just one issue. When it arrives, it's covered in black stuff that comes off on your hands. Mine were gift wrapped, but fortunately I opened them first to take a look. I used a tissue to wipe them down and that fixed the problem, but I feel that this step should be done before I receive it, especially since it could potentially be sent as-is to someone else without being checked over by the gifter first. It seems like this is a simple step the artist could add before shipping these. Just wipe them down. Would have been 5 stars if not for that!

            I was surprised when I opened it because it is much smaller than it appears in the photo. I kept it because it is such a cute quirky idea but I think it would be better if it were larger.

            Purchased this for my counselor... the referenced word comes up occasionally in sessions! A woman in my process group (w/same counselor) didn't get it at first, but when she figured it out she fell out of her chair laughing. She wanted to know where I got it and so I'm purchasing another one to give her for Christmas!

              very cute and clever; smaller than i expected, but heavy and solidly made. a little bit of smudge came off on my hands when i touched it, so be careful. i think my recipient will think it's hilarious - and so will everyone who comes to his office.

                This was the perfect gift but I was shocked when I got this, the f is crooked does not sit flat, the wick of the bomb is so loose, the welding on this was so poorly done it looks like someone's first project. I am soooo disappointed, this was not cheap , I am really shocked some of the best gifts I have gotten from my friends have been thru this website and the quality has always been excellent.
