  [vote for,

For those people who compulsively chew their fingernails and wish they could stop, have we got a deal for you!

Small buckets of fingernail clippings for you to chew upon when you're feeling nervous, bored or just plain hungry.

Coming next year in a range of colours and flavours.

       Why not just one long length of artificial (or vat-cultured, or even human-farmed) mounted on a roll in a handy dispenser?

       A friend once told me off for trimming my nails in his room, as when he picked up a clipping from the floor and chewed on it he liked to know that it was his.

       It's about time I hang nailed-it anyway.   

       It's a useful product that allows you to preserve your nails while still chewing fingernails.   

       They could be harvested from prisoners and the poor and homeless then processed for consumption.

       was hoping this would be a bucket of assorted nails for hammering. oh well

       I envisioned a bucket of assorted nails serving no useful purpose whatsoever. I guess both of us had our dreams shattered.
