An apparently Western take on chopsticks, these implements are used in a manner similar to the way in which chimpanzees dig maggots out of a log with a bent twig.
They are used predominantly to attach pieces of cheese to pieces of pineapple, for a tasty, yet strangely unsatisfying party snack. They are often brightly coloured to ensure the user does not mistake them for the nourishing part of said party snack.
Cocktail sticks have a useful alternative use as a method for detaching other morsels of party snack from hard to reach places between your teeth.
Warning: Do not use to remove food from other parts of the body.
