Last Week's Answer: Finger Tongs

Had it with those annoying globs of flesh at the end of your hands called fingers? Tired of the way they have to touch everything (gross!) and can't be put in the dishwasher for a much-deserved scrubbing? Give those digits a dose of due process with Finger Tongs!

With the smooth, caressing feel of FDA-compliant silicone, these 7-inch fingerless fascinations sorta-slide over any hand size to give you precise control when turning sausage, pulling toast from a toaster, or wiping the strained kidney beans from Grandpa's mouth. And at just $17.95, you get the bonus of owning a puppet-type friend to talk to you in the kitchen, sing to you in the shower, or yell at the driver who just cut you off in rush-hour traffic.

What's that, Finger Tong puppet? I need to chop of my fingers to show my devotion to you? Well, okay, but we'll be best friends forever after that, right?
