This Is Me

The "This Is Me" is a plastic blade that you can put on the end of your finger to help you shovel peas (or any other food) onto your fork. Its inventor, Bob Heller, says he called it the "This Is Me" because that's what he says whenever someone objects to him using his finger to push peas onto his fork.

Heller hopes to start selling "This Is Me"s for $14.95 each later this month. More info at

He should branch out, prosthesis for:
* Nose picking
* Scratching
* Adjusting oneself

Any others?

That's what bread is for! Peas came into season a few weeks ago and I've been shelling about 2Ks a week. A bit of olive oil, some dill and fresh sourdough bread.

I was going to suggest that they were designed for putting things in your nose, not pulling them out, until I saw a picture of the guy. He looks like he'd be oblivious to something like that accounting for 90% of his sales.

It's market day again, BD, so I'll be whizzing down the hill to get load up, one last time, for a pea-a-ganza. Or, as this will be the last time (for the season) a pea-a-geddon?

@Expat : Enjoy the scooter ride. I'm still looking for that perfect Burgman. It's a holiday weekend here and patty + subby are coming for a visit.

(At least nobody pointed out I spelled you're as your)

Now definitely confirmed: USAnians are not grown up enough to use a table knife.

It's been a joke, a stereotype and an urban myth since at least the 19th century, but now we finally have proof that it isn't any of those things, but the horrifying truth.

That has to be the most mislabeled product I've seen since I saw battery operated dildos labels as 'facial massagers'. Those are clearly cocaine shovels.
Personally I would want sharpened edges and decorations, and I would wear them as faux fingernails. I wonder if the TSA would let them on an airplane.
