Toothstick

Created by: lumina

Pronunciation: tooth/stik

Unbeknownst to him he had a few toothsticks from the scarf-fest earlier at McDonald's. Yes, it was obvious to the women that he had been charming for weeks that he was NOT the vegetarian he claimed to be!

Etymology: Derived from toothpick: A small stick of wood, plastic, metal or other substance used to remove food from the teeth, usually after a meal. A toothSTICK is when a meal hangs around for an encore. :)
