    One good thing about the new version of Microsoft Office: The "helpful" animated paper clip is consigned to history.

    When I saw the thread title, I thought the LA Clippers' mascot had been killed in an unfortunate accident. Glad it was just a cyber-character. The Clippers are having a hard season as it is.

    Burn in hell, Clippy. I'll write my own fucking letter. If you come back as undead Clippy, we're going Van Helsing on your ass.

    The little dog that searches through files is kind of cute, though.

    When I hit a lull writing papers in college, I'd bring up Clippy and cycle through all the different animations for him. Then, inspired, I'd get him off my screen and continue hammering away at whatever insipid report I was typing that week.
