See, at least I have a good scarf.

Arthur Fishcake from Basingstoke was disappointed to learn that his Spirit Animal is the blob-fish.

The dejected Paper-clip salesman said: 'All my life I imagined that my spirit animal would be a Lion, or a Giraffe, or at least a Panda, something to be feared, and if it was a Panda,that would explain my lack-lustre level of success with the fairer sex, but now I find that my spirit animal is a blob-fish. How depressing is that?'

Paper-clip sales have taken a hit since the growth of both the stapler and the computer.

'I am so dejected by this news' said the appropriately named Mr Fishcake. 'My wife always hoped it would be a Sloth, as that would explain my low level of personal hygiene and laziness.'
