Medieval Iron Fists Send a Strong Signal to Coworkers

If I was moving to a new office that would soon be overrun by bright young interns, I would rule with an iron fist--or two--like these ones from ThinkGeek. I would throw down the gauntlet and challenge them to knock me off as leader. These gauntlets are tugging at my next AdSense check very very hard.

Implications - Products like this let consumers embrace their inner medieval ruler and offer a definite "king of my world" appeal. To anyone that feels like a small fish in the very big pond of modern life, a mischievously silly item like this would hold a certain ironic and playful appeal all its own.
