“Matters of Taste
The latest in tasteful eyewear
by David Shaw, LA Times
A German company has created frames with detachable arms you can use as chopsticks. But why? So I saw this story not long ago about a German company that sells eyeglasses with detachable frame-arms that can be used as chopsticks or forks…”
My first thought was – oooooo. Gross. Eating raw fish with something that’s been perched behind your ear all day. Yuck.
My second thought was – oooooooo. Putting on glasses that have been dipped in soy sauce and wasabi that have clasped raw fish. Yuck.
But I like where he went with useful combinations.
Watch/corkscrew. Not bad.
Tie clasp/Eucharist shell holder. Not so much.
How about poncho/waterproof tablecloth? Great for those days in the park where you need something to lay your picnic spread on… in a little precipitation.
Earring/clam shucker. Could be useful.
Ring/dental floss dispenser. You always need dental floss at the most inopportune moments. Swirl it up in a fancy shmancy bling bling ring. Problem solved.
Countless other opportunities…
