Staplers Card
Where Have All the Staplers Gone? is the Silly Song from Pistachio: The Little Boy that Woodn't and is sung by Larry the Cucumber & Petunia Rhubarb. In the song, presented as "Obscure Broadway Show Tunes with Larry", Larry and Petunia lament the misplacement of various office supplies and reminisce about the time when they were plentiful in this parody of the folk song Where Have All the Flowers Gone?. At the end, the narrator promotes Act 2, "Revenge of the Staplers".


Announcer: And now it's time for Obscure Broadway Show Tunes with Larry. The part of the show where Larry comes out and sings an obscure broadway show tune.

Without further ado, from the unknown musical Office Supplies, the heart trending love sing, Where Have All the Staplers Gone?

Larry: We don't have much time before the big meeting.

Petunia: No, no we don't.

Larry: Have you seen the sisscors, miss?

Petunia: They're in the bottom drawer.

Larry: I tried that drawer, but they're there no more.

Petunia: That's odd.

Larry: I know I thought for sure.

Petunia: Have you seen the masking tape?

Larry: It's right next to the phone.

Petunia: (sighs) That's what I thought, but now it's now it's not.

Larry: Hmm.

Petunia: I guess I should have known.

Both: Ohhhhh, where have have all the staplers gone?

What happened to our paper clips?

Petunia: The ballpoints pens are gone again.

Larry: They're gone again.

Both: The stick-it pads have lost they're stick.

Do you remember when....
