My father has a funny but nasty habit of removing his glasses and using the end one of the arms to clean/ itch the insides of his ears. This product is a cue tip with a sleeve attachment that slides over the end of the glasses arm. A tiny elastic is affixed to each sleeve allowing it to stay put while
"digging", but also allows for disposal after use like a regular cue tip. Prior to use the stylish clean cue tip is discreetly worn behind the ear with the glasses maintaining their regular position. Patent Pending.

||Well, nevermind about getting the ladies, but it sounds useful otherwise!
||I think a Q-tip rather than a cue-tip - spelling, please!
||After the cleaning process, how does he remove the earwax from the spectacle arms? If the answer is "sensibly and in a sanitary manner" then this idea would work for him. If however the answer is "as an appetiser" then he might be in for a mouthful of cotton! Perhaps a better solution would be to rub some chilli-juice on the end of his specs and hope that his next dig will be his last.
Oh, I meant that the shock of getting chilli-juice on his ears would put him off doing it again, but reading that again it sounded like, err, never mind.
||If he's been a good boy this year, I would hope that santa will bring him real Q-tips for christmas.
