Pino the Cork Voodoo Doll
Sometimes you have to just stick it...to the man or to the to-do pile. Pino serves both purposes. As a freestanding memo board, it's a place to post your to-do list or any other must-do note. Strike back at those tasks with each stick pin! Or exorcise your work and home grief with some voodoo-style payback.
