With student elections days away, local stationery distributor Ryman have reported a 312% increase in dry-erase board sales [and dry-erase board accessories] in their Market Street branch.

Branch manager Colin Stinson commented “It’s always around election time we see a short and sharp increase in our sales of dry-wipe products, it’s a very ‘in’ thing for people to buy this time of year.”

“I think there’s a distinct poetic element to this trend – I find the image of the year as a blank slate quite powerful; almost motivating. These fearless candidates are prepared to put their studies and lives on hold to better the experience had by thousands of their peers, and that is truly selfless. There’s a lesson in this for all of us, don’t be a permanent marker, be open to change. Much like the noticeboard, we must stand and be noticed, in all our corky glory. Like the stapler we must hold the community together. Like post-it notes in the wind.”

He lowers four uncapped markers from his nostrils.

“I’m so fucking high, man.”
