Unitasker Wednesday: Chip Fingers

All Unitasker Wednesday posts are jokes — we don’t want you to buy these items, we want you to laugh at their ridiculousness. Enjoy!

It’s summer party time and that means people are enjoying finger foods such as chips, pretzels, sliced fruits and vegetables, as well as barbequed wings and ribs.

For those that like to keep their fingers clean, check out Chip Fingers! These food-grade silicone finger covers have a unique shape that fits on just about any finger size. They come three fingertips to a pack so you’ll have to buy at least two packs to get your thumb and two fingers per hand covered — four packages if you want all your fingers covered.

Chip Fingers are heat resistant so your fingers won’t be able to feel how hot those chicken wings are you’ll just use your lips and mouth to find out. I’m sure the burns will heal quickly. They are also reusable and dishwasher safe. Since they are small and light weight, you might want to purchase a dishwasher basket so they don’t fly all around the inside of the dishwasher during the wash cycle.

Oh, and you probably shouldn’t take them to any family-oriented events because they are a choking hazard for children and pets.

Personally, I’ll pass on these unitaskers because I think barbequed food is finger lickin’ good.

    Those are quilting thimbles. Really. 🙂

    If you’re really concerned about getting goo on your hands while you eat, learn how to use chopsticks. You can even get a set of travel chopsticks that fold up into a nice little package. Most of them seem to be the really pointy Japanese style, but you can find the less pointy type if you look around.

    At my most recent job, I learned from the younger people how to eat small snack items using a tablespoon, so I wouldn’t get salt or cheese on my computer keyboard or telephone.
