A Knife for all Seasons

He sat there, showing off the Swiss army knife with little-boy charm and excitement as he lovingly felt the edges of the various blades. According to him, it was a very, very useful gadget in all kinds of emergencies.

'So, have you ever actually used any of the features?' I asked, wondering about the daredevil acts a mining engineer may have accomplished with a little help from this trusted Swiss buddy.

'Sure...' he replied. 'The toothpick.'

I only ever seem to use the scissors on mine.

I thought the toothpick was the thing that got lost first?
