Combination Handcuff Key and Writing Instrument: Great Idea?

Patent#US 6880369 also known as the Combination Handcuff Key and Writing Instrument dates back to 2005 and may be just the thing for law enforcement and security personnel. To others, however, it remains a very silly patent. Read on but….watch out for those cuffs.
