That'sa, biga, reda, paper-clip, huh?
Measurements were taken on the spot for the Guinness World Record bid, and Kipling is now home to a red paperclip that is:
15 feet, 2 inches long
39 inches wide
Is constructed of 5 inch diameter solid steel
Weighs just shy of 4000 pounds
And holds paper! (And mounties.)
Word on the street is that Dubai was home to the previous world's largest paperclip. I think it's probably a good idea for Kipling to instigate a paperclip-off with Dubai, seeing that Kipling could also one day turn into a burgeoning trading metropolis overseen by billionaires hellbent on breaking every standing world record ever created. One day. Maybe.
So, I guess I need to say, bring it on Dubai!
Kipling's giant red paperclip is located just behind 503 Main Street in Bell Park, and can be enjoyed by children of all ages. (And Mounties) So swing on by!
