Salt lick patches

Blocks of salt lick are just too impractical in the office. Instead, small patches of felt saturated with concentrated saline should be stuck onto walls. This would also prevent hedgehogs from being able to reach the salt and contaminating it with their saliva.

(?) Impractical? Hardly! http://www.getyourlicks.com/
They even come with an attractive base. (Site from [kelli].) [jutta, Jun 21 2001]

       Err...why?

       Could lubbit's job be that of a hedgehog trainer?

       Hmmm. Maybe this is actually an epidermal patch to help cows get over wild salt cravings. Once they get over the five-block-a-day mark, you gotta do something. Therapy just doesn't seem to work on bovines.

       Now that Peter mentioned cows I've remembered that horses use salt licks too.

       Actually, I think man does have a distinct natural appetite for salt. It's just that we mix it with our food instead of licking it off a big block.

       I am SO not licking that after ANY of my other co-workers have licked it.

       The only thing that prevents this idea from being deeply derivative of my famed Saltissimos is that it was posted four years earlier. Damn damn damn.

       I thought this would be patches that you wear on your arm, when you're trying to cut down on your salt without withdrawals.
