What Is This Thing?

I feel like I stumbled upon some artifact from feudal China or some shit. This relic was dropped on my desk with a sticky note that said, "Can you fix this for me?" You might as well leave a sticky asking me to go ahead and fix a Boeing jet. Are you kidding me with this thing? The bottom right says, "oil occasionally." It's 2011, we shouldn't have to consider oiling anything. If it's in bad enough shape that it needs oil, it's in bad enough shape to get tossed in the trash. Also, what are we talking here? Goya Vegetable oil or some of that Valvoline NASCAR stuff? Either way, there's no chance I'm fucking with this thing. Looks like a 500% chance I'll cut/smush/maim my fingers the moment I even consider "fixing" it.

Even if this was you who left me the sticky note hot temp worker, it's simply not worth the risk. No way I'm going toe to toe with the prototype-beta version of a 3-hole punch.

    Maybe it's a test your boss has decided to put you through, since your last office-like post was about your boss seeing you struggle with a staple remover?
