Chopstick Sharpener

Makes eating chinese food easier, but twice as dangerous
  [vote for,

We've all been there. You want to appear sophisticated enough to eat with chopsticks, but you've never really mastered it. Maybe you're just plain lazy. Enter the Chopstick Sharpener. We all end up stabbing those last few pieces of Kung Pao Chicken anyway, now at least you'll be guaranteed a better chance of pulling it off.

Ideally, the CS would be small enough to fit in your pocket, quiet enough to not attract attention, and battery powered. In effect, it's a high-quality pencil sharpener. You might be saying "Well it's a pencil sharpener, right? Why not just use a pencil sharpener?" The answer is really quite simple. It's because a pencil sharpener tastes like pencils (Trust me on this, I've done several double-blind tests to prove it).

       Exactly twice?

       Eat at a Japanese restaurant and you will have round and pointed chopsticks. If you eat at a Chinese restaurant, they will serve you squared chopsticks (my preference).

       I like the chopsticks with the splayed ends, divided into three or four points.

       An adult Shirley. Didn't she become an ambassador to somewhere?   

       A slew of chopstick-challenged individuals have joined the bakery it seems.

       [UB] - my guess is that it's one of those things that's easier to learn if you're younger.
