Explaining a handle

Calling someone a “doorknob” is an insult to intelligence because doorknobs are simple. At least, they should be. From Tim Tucker Online, where Tim writes:

If your door handle needs a note explaining how to use it, you know there’s got to be something wrong with the design.

Door Handle
Not sure who said it first, but it bears repeating: Design only calls attention to itself at the point of failure.
