Things We Need
Wednesday, 2006 January 25 - 11:56 pm
After tens of thousands of years, we're still using the same old utensils.

So as I've mentioned before, chopsticks are the ideal instrument for eating Cheetos. This is something my friend Scott discovered some time ago. At work today, I had no chopsticks available to me, so I used two plastic knives instead. For some reason, this action brought to mind the movie "They Call Me Bruce." Hmm.

It occurs to me that someone should design a new utensil for eating Cheetos; maybe something that has a claw-and-scoop sort of attachment on the end. That would also be useful for eating peas. Or maybe something that works like a little broom and dustpan. It's been quite a while since we've had any innovation in the utensil department; the Spork, while admittedly a fabulous invention, was only a small improvement over existing technology.

A few other things we need:

- Soup bowls that are pre-tilted, so we can get the last bit of soup out without having to grab the bowl.
- An adult version of a sippy cup: something that prevents ice from falling all over our faces when we tip a water glass too far.
- A straw-like device with a cutting attachment on the end, for eating crab meat right out of the shell.

How come we don't have any gastro-tech companies to invent stuff like this?

I would buy these in BULK. I had a rum & Coke chin shower last night.

"Chin shower" sounds vaguely like a porn movie term.

Yep. That's what I'm into. Booze porn.

what are some other good "I didn't mean it that way" porn terms? For some very odd reason James Carvell's nickname springs to mind, the Raging Cajun.
