David Rees starts new venture sharpening pencils

Get Your War On clip-art cartoonist David Rees has launched a new venture: sharpening pencils.

From The National Post:

The business plan is simple: just send him a No. 2 pencil in need of a good sharpening, and for the low, low price of $12.50 he?ll sharpen it, mail it back to you, and include a small plastic baggy containing the shavings, which you may save for posterity, or your children. In addition, each pencil is returned with a signed and dated certificate ?authenticating that it is now a dangerous object.? If you don?t happen to own a pencil, you can buy one from Rees for $15.

There is even a Facebook campaign to get him on the David Letterman show to demonstrate pencil-sharpening.

  1. Genius idea…wish I’d thought of it first. BTW, I’ll sharpen your pencils for $7.99. And it doesn’t have to be a no. 2, either. Anything from 5H to 5B, baby! HB’s & F’s too.
