    In Chinese, they’re called 筷子(kuàizi), which means, roughly, “quick sticks”. In Chinese-English pidgin, “chop-chop” means “quickly”.

    Oh no… Not the ‘Why’?

    I used to eat with chopsticks for some weird reason. I was quite good at it.

    His name does make more sense, at least for the way he’ll eat with them.

    Thanks for the info! My sons love to eat with chopsticks; now I’ll be able to tell them not only the proper Chinese name, but why they are called what they’re called. :)

    I’m 32, and still can’t figure out how the f&#k to work the damn things!!
    The sad part? I live in a community that is 60% Asian, 20% white, and 20% “Other” (whom also like the damn chop sticks!) LOL

    That is the reason why countries like sticky rice but not here.Non-stick rice we have which makes it near impossible to use the quick sticks.

    Sticky rice is way high in the starches.
