Somtimes when I'm writing I feel like a snack. So I think it would be a great idea to have flavoured pencils or pen lids, that release a flavoured snack .

       Little (ok biggish) tin of goodies (biscuits, snack bars, chocolate etc) next to the computer for when I'm so creative it would be a shame to disrupt the flow

       [PeterSealy] I don't think he needs one of those -- I seem to recall that [gizmo] would be underage for that!

       You may not be able to write with a sausage, but you can certainly write with a pencil that has a sausage stuck on the eraser end. Or one could shove a short pencil into the end of one of those hollow licorice gummy things (red ropes?)

       When I was young (in the 70's) there was a big craze for flavoured erasers for the end of your pencil. Very strange, as although tasted of e.g. Strawberry, superficially (e.g. if licked), they obviously tasted discgusting if bitten off and chewed (which plenty of daft kids did, believe me). Also, rubber is not that nutritious.

       Snacks are dangerous things for the unwary (see link) and flavoured pencils could attact the attention of people not smart enough to use them to write.

       someone with username "notripe" peddling sausages...I suppose you would use some synthetic casing?

       thumbwax: Was that an ASCII rendering of a certain Mr Bill T Cat esq. (probably not considering context, but I thought I'd check)?

       I do, but I'm a tiger. Must be a cat thing...

       On the TV show 'Felicity', a character named Sean who's always inventing things also came up with this one.

Hey, since taste and smell are so closely linked to memory, I think you should suck on the same flavor when studying for a test and when taking that test. That is, a flavor for each subject.

       My kids came home from the Doctor's office recently with PaedialyteTM grape-flavoured toungue-depressors to suck on. They look just like regular tongue-depressors, but smell like grape, and apparently taste grapy. Not sure of the medical benefits of sucking on 'em, but the kids had fun. I'm sure the same could be done with pencils. Croissant.
