the paperclip

“Never, btw (which, unlike ‘poststructuralism,’ is a word in Word
spellcheck), ask that androgynous paper clip anything. S/he is
just a stooge for management, leading you down more rabbit holes
of options for things called Wizards, Macros, Templates, and
Cascading Style Sheets.”

– Louis Menand, commenting on Microsoft Word, in the New Yorker
article “The End Matter” (October 6, 2003).
