omg when my sister was in second grade, her teacher almost died from stepping on a toothpick barefoot and getting a crazy infection! She was out for almost half the year!

That's bizarre Bird. I don't like the things, they creep me out.

Oh wait!! And the husband of a friend of mine actually said once, "I wish I had invented the toothpick.. I'd be rich". Seriously. Did anyone really 'invent' it??? Haven't they been in play since the caveman days?? And of ALL things to want to have invented... the toothpick?? Sheesh.

LOL N.V.!

I think toothpicks were used as a weapon back in the cavemen days.

oh lord. i have a total toothpick fetish. i pocket the free ones from restaurants and keep a stash at work, in my car, my purse. my dad is a dentist, so when i was little he banned them from the house. maybe that's why i overcompensate?

i need a therapist. or toothpick rehab.
