This is one of THE Yello classics.
Besides ... "Bostich" - What the heck is this? Well, this enigmatic term might probably only become clear if you know a little Swiss German, the native language of the Yello guys - or, alternatively, the US brand. A "bostich" is simply a stapler; moreover, "bostitchen" exists indeed as a legit verb in Switzerland, obviously meaning to firmly attach something by using staples! Both the verb and the noun are totally unknown and unusual in Germany; hence this is another proof of the diversity between Standard German and Swiss German.
