An old co-worker of mine used to eat greasy snacks like potato chips and popcorn with chopsticks. He said it kept his hands clean. It seemed hilarious and bizarre — until it started to sound pretty smart. Looks like he’s not alone: Eating Cheetos with Chopsticks has an official page on Facebook, for the clean-fingered-yet-alienated fans of the technique. Are you one of them?

BuzzFeed recently named the idea #1 on its list of The 18 Best Ideas People on the Internet Have Ever Had. Having witnessed the method firsthand, I may have to agree, though any greasy or messy snack is fair game. (Incidentally, Eating Popcorn with Chopsticks also has a Facebook page, but it isn’t nearly as active. The orange Cheetos dust obviously lights a fire under people.)
