Original YTMND:
I believe you have my stapler?

Worthy Spinoffs:

The “stapler” fad was one of the earliest and most popular YTMND fads. It was started in April of 2004 by the user evers. The original YTMND shows a picture of the character Milton Waddams of "Office Space" fame, looking out from his cubicle desk, with a sound clip of his famous line, “I believe you have my stapler?”

Early fad sites usually had the stapler in the original picture replaced with another object; the sound clip was altered so instead of “stapler,” the item was said. This was the basic format which was popular in 2004, but not as much in the years to come.

Some sites involve inserting Milton's quote into songs. One such site, called “spread my stapler and fly away”, became popular and was inducted into the Hall of Fame. The site added the words “You have my stapler” into R. Kelly's hit song "I Believe I Can Fly", along with a photoedit of R.Kelly as Milton. The song was later included for YTMND Soundtrack Volume 10.

Most stapler sites today play around with the scene, usually incorporated into other fads (e.g. I want Stapler, a play on the Butterfingers Fad). Milton will very often be included in conglomerate sites.
