Ironic that the aboriginal bent stick didn't get a mention - the one called a boomerang that you can`t throw away (as featured in Blackadder II).

One of the best known uses of the STICK out West (besides regaining control of an unruly, out-of-control, knot-headed horse !!!) is using it to encourage an irate rattlesnake to go away and leave you alone before it's venemous little head gets whacked into an unidentifiable heap of mush and being cooked and devoured as a "RATTLESNACK".

Hmm, I always percieved the stick-snake relationship as being less violent...you use the stick to flick the snake mre than twice its length away -- then it can't reach you. Isn't a digiridoo (and many other instuments) just a hollow stick? What about dipsticks for checking oil? Popsicle sticks? Toothpicks? Scratching posts for cats?

and of course...
CHOPSTICKS!!!
