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.

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.

      I thought this would be larger, like the size of a softball. But it's about the size of a golf ball. Doesn't really matter, as it's solid metal and heavy, will still work great as a paperweight.

            Great paperweight for your office...small in size so it fits in any space...but a good weight at the same time to keep those papers down. Just a really clever concept!
