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 for a daily reminder at work dealing with frustrating situations/co-workers. I may not always be able to verbally drop the F Bomb, and having it on my desk makes the situation a little easier to deal with. Before purchasing I asked my boss for approval...only condition he gave me is to put oursight of new employee and/or auditors!!

            I gave this as a fun "thinking of you" gift to our accountant. Certainly a funny surprise for someone who ends up cursing due to my workload. Great little token gift to the person who has everything...including a sense of humor!

                My coworker has papers all over , plus she tends to drop the "f bomb" , so this was perfect! She was also in the military, so she
                Liked that the artist often uses recycled military helmets in his work

                  I have this one at my office as well. I LOVE this -- I get lots of comments on it and when I'm stressed I can look at is (and the other paperweight by same artist) and chuckle...nobody knows...

                      I knew from reading previous reviews that the item was smaller than it looks in pictures, but it's really just the same size as you would expect a paperweight to be. Sturdy, solid, and heavy - and very well done. Love!
