Napkin sleeves

"Wipe your mouth on your sleeve!"
  [vote for,

To capitalise on the propensity of young children to wipe their mouths on their sleeves while eating, napking should be made in elasticated, tubular sections which can be slipped onto the arms before eating. Soon these will be fashionable in all the best restaurants and eating places and to wipe your mouth on a traditional napkin rather than your sleeve will be seen as a ghastly faux pas.

       Aparently (according to How2) this is why in the navy the crew have buttons on their jacket cuffs. Not sure how accurate it is as How2 also said polar bears cover their black noses with their paws when hunting to get better camouflage in the snow.

       wonder why nature gave them black noses

       Wildcats do have black noses, or brown.

       That's 'cos they're sun-tanned 'cos no-one got close enough to put on sun-block

       I'm 18 and I still wipe my mouth on my sleeves.

       See link. It seems that Sheryl Crow has been publicising this idea without crediting me. Come on then, own up - which one of you is Sheryl Crow?
hippo, Apr 23 2007

       I see it now! Kirk Douglas is Sheryl Crow.
