    A gun target with my ex wife's face on it. Oh wait, that was my fault, I was the one making copies of it.

    I had a IR600 jammining in the feeder at one of the casinos I was working in. Someone from housekeeping instead of putting his driving license on the glass thought he could put it through the feeder!!! Atleast we could find out who broke the machine.

    Not sure if it was the icing from the jelly doughnut that went from the bypass to the drum or the huge piece of gravel in the feed section of the document feeder on a Lanier 6525.

    How about liquids or ground charcoal in the toner bottle.

    We recently had a 3 year contract with the public school system. We have found an entire pair of scissors, a press on fingernail, pens, pencils, a comb, a hairnet, a watch, and my personal favorite, a dead roach fused to the transfer wire. Made for a really cool image though.

    Lasagna. There was a giant slab of lasagna that had be mushed down between the finisher and the plotter unit (Ricoh MP7000). Also found sunflower seed shells in the right door assy paper path on a RICOH Aficio 2027. Someone who unjammed the MFD was eatting Sunflower Seeds and spit them or dumped them in there by accident while unjamming.

    Had a call for copier needed cleaning. A mouse left presents. Up on the hill found a full deck of playing cards in the duplex unit. Had a customer try to make a copy of a passport photo. on a fax machine by trying to run it through the doc feeder.

    I had a call from a customer... she said their "office pet" seeked warmth near the fuser section on a desktop Kyocera while the office was closed (and the printer was 'sleeping'). Once the workers came in in the morning, someone sent a print-job and the "pet" didn't make it out in time before getting caught in the gears... the tech that had to go on-site had a 3-4 foot snake to clean up... YIKES

    Mice (x2) dead in a HP 4SI
    Snake skin
    Various finger nails
    Hair with the skin tags
    Various bugs alive and dead
    and now for the most unusual...

    A complete marijuana pipe kit complete with grass (taped under the lid of a fax machine that was brought in shop for repair)
    and a used condom (yes it was in an office, the end user was not in her cubicle when I was there. guess it got flung...?)
    Had a customer complain of an odor coming from the printer. Removed the covers and their were stink bugs getting crushed in the gears.

    All this stuff makes me think that in addition to an idiot clause, I may need a really stupid idiot clause...
