I have a pencil sharpener shaped like a shrimp. It is made in Shanghai, China. It's orange in colour and is bent in a crescent shape. I guess it is modeled after a cooked shrimp. A live one would have been straight, and perhaps white in colour. To use it I insert a pencil into its head and twist. The shavings would expel itself from the side of its head. With a pencil on it, it looks like a fancy hor d'oeuvre.

"Madame, voulez-vous une crevette sur un bâton?"


"une crevette sur un bâton"

"Je passe"

"le bâton?"
