Not this again, Gary.

Gary Johnson, 48, a renowned paper-clip counter from Chutney on the Fritz has revealed that, as from Monday April 1st, he is looking for a new job.

Johnson, who has professionally counted paperclips into boxes since his teens, feels the need for a change.

'I worked for all of the big companies,' said Johnson. 'Ryman's, WH Smith, Wilkinson, all the big suppliers, moving up and along the line. For a while, I was a drawing pin counter, and then a safety pin counter, but neither had the rush of excitement, the sense of adventure that Paper-clip counting had.'

We wish Johnson luck. He will need it.
