All the better for it…

I'm disgusted by people flicking food out of their teeth at the table – do it in the restroom! – and these things could damage the enamel and gums. The ones obsessed about toothpicks are Middle Easterners and Latins, some fashioning them out of drinking straws.

For hobby related purposes, I still have a pack from ~1995 and these have been useful as tools and material for scenery. Lately, I've found used wooden matchsticks – used plenty for scented candles – as a better alternative for sudes and chevaux de frise.
