Paradox Paperweight

Not available for purchase.

223 votes 32 comments

PRODUCT STORY
The text featured on this paperweight is an example of "vicious circularity", a logical paradox or contradiction. The shape of the paperweight itself is also illogical, as the pewter arrows are pointing neither above nor below. For anyone who finds themselves receiving contradictory instructions or feedback in the office, this paperweight should fit right in on their desk. Made in Rhode Island.
MATERIALS
lead-free pewter

I don't get it. Furthermore, how many paperweights does someone need? I feel like I keep seeing paperweights everywhere on the site.

It's clever; an office conversation starter. Not sure that it will sell for that price, however; a bit high.

Price is too high and I have a postcard with the arrow the same way but with "this way" like the postcard better.

I like it but I'm not paying $35 for something to hold papers down on my desk. I can put a coffee cup on them.

What's with all the paperweights? Give me something functional and inspirational and I'll consider it.

What I think of this paperweight cannot be put into print because I don't use the language that I'm thinking of to describe this piece of trash.
