Default have you ever thought about shanking someone with a...

candy cane? Every time I eat one, I suck the tip of it until it makes a sharp point. I've often wondered if I'm the only one to make this "home made" shank.

BTW don't even think about submitting me talking about sucking anything for a quote of the week. REJECTED!

No. But it occurs to me every time that I take a pork tenderloin out of the freezer that I could probably kill someone with it if I had to.

I can't suck candy canes that long. Always end up biting. Oral fixation and all that.

vabeachgirl- I haven't had one in a long time.

cj- I guess I like to have things last. A piece of gum will last me 1/2 the day. Hell I've gone to bed with gum, woke up and began chewing again. That's one of the joys of being bald, I can go to bed with gum and not worry about a disaster when I wake up.

LOL @ Cassie.

I don't eat candy canes for the simple reason that I always end up stabbing myself in the mouth with them.

Mike, you're not the only one to make candy canes into lethal weapons. I sometimes I do that too and I have a 4 year old that does it all the time. I've taken to breaking her candy canes into pieces, because I worry that she'll make it into a sharp point and run with it while it's in her hands or mouth. When she runs around the house, things get broken, people get hurt. Let's not add "people get shanked and bleed to death" to the list of things that can happen around that kid.

I do this too, and I have stabbed myself in the tongue. Iron and peppermint, not such a good combination lol.

I got a great laugh out of this thread. I think the whole thing should be on the 'Quote of the Week'.
