I would choose the escrima stick as well seeing as it is straight to the point and very practical.

I didn't know escrima sticks were pointy (sorry, that wasn't at all funny).

I pick staff, as it's the only weapon I know how to use.

It may be a cliche, but I like it anyway: the pen is mightier than the sword.

It can cut, has a point, and is extremely versatile...depending on the skill of the one who wields it.

But since I'm not a writer or a politician, and prefer to avoid the title of 'armchair warrior', I'd choose a bo. I do like a nice piece of hickory.

Harlan,

Actually pen technique (a variation of stick technique) works quite well too. Not necessarily as Matt Damon used in 'The Bourne Identity', but with great versitility. It can pass thorugh metal detectors with Innocence. It can dig quite well into many of the bodies weak areas.

And carrying a pen you may never be unarmed.

All things are never equal, and the pen isn't a weapon of superiority, just one of sneakiness. And it even works when the ink is dry.

The pen can run dry...as long as The Well never does.

I take a pen everywhere because not only can they be used to stick in peoples weak points they also can help write down the ladies numbers

I'd go with the nunchaku. You can hit, lock up, and beat down multiple people at once, Awesome weapon but it does take some degree of knowledge to wield.

Yari and sai are my runners up.

I'm like a MA redneck, instead of a rifle in the rear window of my truck there is an oak bokken. The local police have never said a thing, I think there legal? (some are my students) and It feels very comfortable having it near my side in the event of an emergency. Other MA weapons are fine but personally my choice is the bokken.
