This product is sloppily made with welding drip marks on both sides of the bomb where as pictured, there are none. I also measured it at 3.5' tall. It is NOT 4' which they described it as. Is it cute? Yes. Worth purchasing? Not so much.

      This was a gift for my boss. It took him 5 years to drop the F Bomb in front of me so it was very appropriate as a gift to commemorate the event, but also a useful gift for his desk!

          Purchased as a gift for a foul mouthed co-worker. She loved it! Made well, not flimsy, very heavy and pretty solid all the way around. Would definitely recommend.

            This is a really fun paperweight. Adult humor aside, it works well to keep paper organized and it's a nice heavy weight too. Great for any office where the Wolf of Wall Street would be proud of the interdepartmental lingo. ;)

                    Exactly th size and weight expected. Disappointed that it came a bit rusty and leaves a mark on paper and rusty smudge on hands whenever handled. I cleaned it and applied some furniture wax - hope that solved the rust and dirt problem.
