    Seriously? They’re called fuzzy sticks now?

    “They were used to clean what?”

    I’ve just had a horrible thought that I’ll keep to myself.

    I bet you could get someone to pay you to do that.

    (What you thought about, not keeping it to yourself.)

    As a person who is still a pipe smoker, I do regularly use pipe cleaners as originally designed. However, I also find them fun for craft things as well. I have to usually hide them, however, for a myriad of people (read as both kids and adults) like to “borrow” them and then when I need a few for their original intended purpose, I am out.

    At least one person here knows what a Dottle is.

    You are correct, sir, I do.

    What kid calls them fuzzy sticks? Kids from the 1950’s?

    How old is that Plugger then?

    I’m on board with “dottle”. It can be nasty stuff!!

    The idea, I think, of the comic is that kids today do not know the original meaning and use of pipe cleaners as there are (sadly, IMHO) few pipe smokers today. I have not heard the term “fuzzy stick” used in my area, but have seen and heard the term “chenille stems” used in my area. I happen to prefer the traditional name.

    Wouldn’t be involved in an activity involving ‘warm fuzzys’, would it?

    It’s something that gets done to you at “special” clinics.

    No thank you, that particular pipe needs no cleaning.
