Thirteen Inch Ruler (Feb, 1965)
ROTFL!!! I have never seen anything so funny in my life. I mean, it looks like a normal ruler right? But instead of 12 inches, it has 13!!! Hilarious!
And that “everyone can use an extra inch” line is just classic. I’m going to make that my new catch-phrase.
A GIFT THAT STAYS ON EVERYONE’S DESK!
EVERYONE WANTS THE RULER WITH THE BUILT-IN LAUGHS
And it really has 13 inches. (Everyone can use an extra inch.)
