duckbill money clip

My friend Tony's money clip venture appears to really be taking off. His negotiations with various corporate customers are starting to pay off.

Playing off the name, the Duck Bill Money Clip, Tony has received his first large order from Aflac. It's a natural fit, given Aflac's humorous duck commercials. Aflac intends to give the money clips away as gifts to employees and customers.

While the initial order is the largest ever for the money clip, there's a hint of even larger orders from Aflac in the future...

And then there's Ducks Unlimited, who is also showing interest in a substantial order. Not to mention the University of Oregon Ducks and the Anaheim Ducks of the NHL. The future looks bright.

The interesting thing about the money clip is how the idea started when Tony was wasting some time, thinking about how he could improve upon the homemade clip he had made to keep the few essential items he carries in his pocket.

Tony recently replaced my original stainless steel money clip with a highly-polished version that includes my name engraved on the back. I receive compliments and questions about it often.

Simply the best money clip ever.

random. arbitrary. completely unnecessary. yet refreshingly therapeutic.
