Sylvester Stallone has designed a pen. It's called Chaos. It's by Montegrappa (auto-play music... and oh what music)

I get the feeling he described it to an artist and kept saying "That's good, but way more badass!" and the artist finally was like, "Fine, I'll make it totally over the top just to get him to stop!" And then the artist went to town with the Skulls! And more CHAOS! And when Syl saw it, he said, "Yes, that is totally it!" and the artist went home and drank all night.

The bad-ass-ness of Chuck Norris (lore) is that it's all within Chuck Norris. He doesn't need a stinkin' pen to show off how manly he is.

Or more in line with the Chuck Norris facts meme: Chuck Norris doesn't need a pen to write, he just stares at the paper until his thoughts bleed through. Or something like that.

What I'm saying here is there's lots of jokes to be made about Hollywood and Sylvester Stallone's pen set isn't the biggest one.

If Montegrappa knew what they were doing, they'd offer that tune as a download for 99 cents because I have about eighteen million short film ideas I'd like to make with it as the soundtrack right about now.

The pen is said to be mightier than the sword because the words a pen writes can move the hearts of millions and change the world much more effectively than mere force, as represented by the sword.

It's really not because the pen is encrusted with skulls and chaos and barbed wire and shit until everyone is forced to admit that it is even more badass than the sword.

This item has skulls and snakes on it which makes it intrinsically sweet and worth 5 stars by itself, but once I tried it, that's when the magic happened. After checking to ensure that the pen would actually write, I walked from my trailer to Wal-mart with the pen in my pocket and was immediately approached by women. The women knew from the skulls and snakes on my pen that I am a mysterious loner who knows how to 'write' from time to time (if you catch my drift!). The women that approached me wanted to know if I would be their boyfriend and/or give them money for something they called mehth. I told them no, because they didn't have enough teeth, and frankly a man with a skull and snake pen shouldn't settle for the first thing that comes to him.

Pros: Capable of writing letters and numerals (Roman and Arabic), has skulls and snakes on it, attracts women
Cons: Only one large skull on the pen itself, cannot see skull or snakes when the pen is in your pocket, skull would have been better if it was an actual miniature skull from a small animal or a very small person.

What I like best about the photo of Sly holding the pen is that I can imagine its suspended on his hand in that way because there is a skull on the other side of the pen biting into the fleshy area between his thumb and pointer.

It would be so satisfying to stab someone in the back of their hand with that pen, or in their eye, or to sign a contract on someone's back and then stab the contract on to their back. I'm pretty sure that's what the pen is made for.

According to the site, this pen goes for a maximum of $5000. Now, bearing in mind that you can get a box of 60 pens from Amazon for the princely sum of $6.99, that means that you could buy nearly 43,000 pens rather than this one.

Or, to put it another way, you could quite literally build a 1:1 scale model of Sylvester Stallone entirely out of pens for less than it would cost you to buy a pen designed by him.

Aptly named Chaos and rightly so, the design for the pen was inspired by classical art by 16th century artists including Battista Franco​, Albrecht Durer​, Hans Sebald Beham and Antonia Pollaiolo.

$5000 is chickenfeed in the high-end collectible pen world, and the design is understated and restrained for the Chinese luxury market, which is where this thing will end up. In Europe and Japan, they blow Rolex money on quietly tastefully pens with name cachet.

American execs will blow a couple hundred on a Mont Blanc at most, as it's the only pen brand they know, and the collectors tend to enjoy the mid-range European fountain pens as a hobby. Anything over $100 is pushing it unless it's a desirable vintage pen from an American company.

Skulls aside, I've been using (calligraphic) fountain pens for writing recently and they completely rule. It looks awesome, they are fun to use and the wider nibbed one goes oh so smooth.

A pen named "Chaos" should have a little motor in it, to make the pen vibrate when you write so your writing comes out extra-squiggly.

It should also leak ink when you least expect it, and perhaps alter the weather patterns over your house.

I think part of this movie is autobiographical for Sly in that he has some kind of speech impediment and is always worried that people perceive him as dumb because of it. The movie is pretty unwatchable except for the parts with Tim Curry as his "voice coach".

So anyways, pens're smart, right? Smart people use pens and there's art on it, right? Smart people like art. I mean it's tough art though, right? Like tough smart guys will like my pens, right?

I've always said that if I started making a lot of money, I wouldn't get a mansion. Instead, I would get a lot of little, 600-square-foot apartments all over the place. Each one would be decorated differently, and absurdly. One would be all Kung Fu-themed, with Bruce Lee posters everywhere, and those cheap samurai swords you get at malls, and nunchucks and butterfly swords just lying around. One would be 3D backlight posters, and a wall of bongs, and the coffee table would be piled with High Times magazines and old underground comix, and when people opened the closet they would be blinded by hydroponic lights.

And, of course, one would be a heavy metal apartment, filled with statues of dragons and flying v guitars and signed albums from Metallica.

I'd go out to parties and invite people back, and then just, at random, take them to one of these theme apartments. Once there, I would totally act like it was my actual apartment, and I was the sort of person who would live there. At the kung fu apartment, I would throw on some martial arts movies and spend the night obsessively discussing wing Chun. At the stoner apartment I would just get irritatingly verbose on the subject of reforming marihuana laws.

At last I have a pen for my heavy metal apartment.
