I have embedded the image from the patent office below. It's clear from the design that it's more likely to spring off the paper than the original. I can't believe Gary's ego is so needy that he had to go and "invent" an inferior paper clip just to show his girlfriend that he could. I wonder how many more of his inventions are also bogus. Maybe he just likes having a huge number of patents so he can feel like a genius inventor. Maybe he's going for some sort of record. There actually is a list of most prolific inventors. Gary Michelson is not on it.
