Swingline is a manufacturer of staplers. Red Swingline is a reference to the
movie Office Space.

Here is a quote referencing the swingline:

*Milton Waddams <>*: [*talking on the
phone*] And I said, I don't care if they lay me off either, because I told,
I told Bill that if they move my desk one more time, then, then I'm, I'm
quitting, I'm going to quit. And, and I told Don too, because they've moved
my desk four times already this year, and I used to be over by the window,
and I could see the squirrels, and they were married, but then, they
switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline
stapler because it didn't bind up as much, and I kept the staples for the
Swingline stapler and it's not okay because if they take my stapler then
I'll set the building on fire...

It is a very funny movie, very dry humor. SOme people like, others not so

Swingline? Aw, heck! Another noun I don't know about. I think I better
not ask, this time, though... :-\
My sympathies go out to you over the freezing program, though. That is
emphatically un-funny.
