We use paper clips all the time, without them, you might lose your assignments all the time!

He is very famous for inventing the paper clip. He also has a show named " Parks and Recreation " .

The original paper clip is still the same even after centuries, but you can get different shaped and sized ones too.

Paper clips come in different shapes and sizes.
