The Nelson

My father-in-law asked me for a journal that he could give to one of his friends as a holiday gift. He explained that his friend was getting into stand up comedy and that the journal could be useful for writing his material.

Of course, I agreed. As I went through my existing stock, I heard this voice in the back of my head – it sounded something like Barney Stinson saying, “Challenge accepted!

Crap. I was going to make something new. Not only that, but I was going to invent a binding.

I call it The Nelson, after Neslon Muntz from the Simpsons (inspiration):
