Soupbowl Monocle Retriever

a waiter's tool
  [vote for,

It happens over and over...that always very dignified, composed and meticulously assembled socialite is shamed by the "monocle in the soup incident." While there are always occasions for her to drop her jaw (and eyepiece) at something happening at a nearby table, sometimes her monocle lands in the bisque. Never worry again that your customer will be shamed by fishing around for it while everyone around her snipes and snickers. The tool (oh yeah, the product) is a flat, silver spatula-like jobby with little scrolls and swirls and stuff. And it is outfitted with a plain white disposable cocktail umbrella, which deploys downward, shielding the retrieval activity. The SMR (as it will become known in the trade) fits neatly on the opposite end of the crumber or can come in a stand-alone version. It can be carried stuck down the back of the waiters pants with his order tablet, or can sit neatly in the soon-to-be-released Waiter's Holster. Entry #5.

       There's a pince-nez in my blancmange.

       I am pleased someone is developing more monocle accessories.

       I bet Chris Eubank has had several of these custom-made. "path me the monocle thpatula my man - it'th happened again".

       I thought monocles came on chains, like pocket watches. Oh well, I like this anyway.
