Kidnapped Stapler

I was just telling Ang about the mystery of the kidnapped stapler that we encountered at work last year and she pointed out I should probably post it here. So... a bit of background. Decent staplers can be a much sought after resource in the office sometimes. On the 4th floor there was a stapler that was very good at its job, but so reliable that whenever Chad wanted to use it, it appeared to be missing. It became quite common to find a message in your inbox from Chad asking if anyone knew where the stapler was, and would they return it to the 4th floor main room.

One day Chad posted his usual missive and the response that came back pointed at this url:
http://www.geocities.com/kidnappedstapler

Chad was later overhead in the lifts muttering about how it wasn't funny and he had better things to do with his time than follow up childish pranks. It's believed he went out and bought a stapler.

If the mystery kidnapper was ever revealed then nobody told me about it.
