Office Toys

Office toys have been around forever. Recently, grown men have started placing dolls in their offices. These are often Star Wars figures, or oddball pieces like the Kubrick collection. And I am no exception. My wife bought me a Sigmund Freud action figure, and he has gone proudly on display in my new office. Account teams come in with problems, Sigmund lies there in his blister-pack, listening. He's an excellent listener.

I have something that (I think) is a toy, having bought it in Norway years ago. It is a furry seal's penis: it looks like a slinky silvery sausage and it's creepily thrilling to have the women of the agency stroke it, saying "aaaah, it's so cute - what is it?"
