History tells us we have Friedrich Soennecken, a German entrepreneur and inventor, to thank for this officious yet sometimes physically demanding office tool.

A hole punch has a long lever, which helps push a bladed cylinder through a number of sheets of paper, creating identical holes, making it easy to stack them together in a folder. Google had been holding the Google 4 Doodle competition every year since 2010, till the hole punch doodle this year. The Google Doodle displays the logo consisting of colourful paper circles, expect the second letter "g", which is replaced with a blue sheet of paper. Besides the hole puncher, he has invented a binder and a special nib for ink pens suitable for calligraphy. The speciality of this invention is that its basic design has not changed in over 129 years. Even though workplaces have evolved over time, this hole puncher has more or less remained unchanged. This is how today's Google doodle celebrates the 131st anniversary of the hole punch, a staple in offices, schools and colleges.
