"No, it's a paperweight."

"It looks like a brick."

"Ah yes.  It looks like a brick.  But it's only made to look like a brick.  It's actually a paperweight."

"It's a brick."

"Yeah but it's not."

"It's even got those three holes in the middle, like a brick."

"So where's the paper?"

"Well, it's a paperless office, isn't it?"
