Several years ago, my friend Pete was trying to rid his house of some clutter. He was about to throw away this magnificent ape-head pencil sharpener, but asked me first if I wanted it. Of course I leapt at the chance to own a marvellous example of monkey kisch. When you push a pencil into the ape's mouth, its eyes flash and the sharpener emits a horrifying grinding noise. It's one of the most obnoxious office appliances I've ever seen, and I love it.
