When you're walled-in by cubicles all day long, anything can be a welcome distraction from your mundane employment. It doesn't matter if it's stupid cat videos, frustrating flash games, or colourful paper clips shaped like Pac-Man characters.
They don't function any differently than regular paper clips, and at $14 for 20 are super expensive, but who cares? They're a distraction, and that's all that matters. Remember when you spent two hours talking about that sprinkled doughnut with Geraldo Rivera's face on it? These have the potential to entertain for two and a half.
