These Finger Condoms Are Designed for Messy Food


Since shaking people’s hands with greasy, buffalo-sauced fingers is usually frowned upon, someone in South Korea went ahead and invented finger condoms. Named FingerNaps, these mini plastic garbage bags slip right onto your digits. They’re made specifically for the sloppy sort of food: mayo-soaked burgers, slippery chicken wings, deep-fried potato sticks, etc.

Cots schnots. Where I hail from we have a new-fangled invention called ‘gloves’. Not the OJ kind but latex-free, unpowdered plastic gloves. Enough already with this Korean wanna-be. They should stick with kimchee.
