Rice sucker

Annoyed at those ellusive last few grains of rice?

A simple design that allows the user to eat those tricky last few grains of rice with ease. A straw like implement is held in one hand and one end is sucked while tother end hovers over the intended morsel. A slight flaring at the sucking end prevents rice from painfully slaming into the roof of the mouth/throat by slowing the food down slightly. Minutes of unnecessary rice chasing would be saved with this simple and inexpensive device.

       hollow chop sticks?

       Or cook sticky rice with some iron filings and use magnetic chopsticks.   

       I would suggest picking up your bowl and shovelling the rice in with the sticks, rather than trying to pluck the grains up. (+ anyway)

       I don't see how this "flaring" is gonna prevent you from inhaling rice.
