Okay . . . I admit it; I am basically just trying to make waiting for my iPad(s) easier by posting this.

Having said that I got to thinking about the Koreans using frozen sausages as styluses (or is it styli?). How about using a Slim Jim instead, the advantage over the sausage is when you were done with it you could always eat it.
Of course you'd want to put a ziplock bag over your iPad, iPhone etc.

I plan on trying it out and seeing how well it works, unless someone beats me to it and post their results here first. :D

I think that you were just hungry when you posted this!;)

You are probably right. For what its worth my wife thinks this is an awful idea . . . but she also doesn't like Slim Jims.

Maybe she would prefer one of those "fancy-schmancy" straw-shaped chocolate-coated "sticks" you dunk in coffee for her edible iPad stylus.;)

All you need is any hunk of meat cut into a stylus. Then add a battery so the stylis can have a minute charge just as your finger does. And then you have a working ipad/touch stylus.

I would get the munchies mid-morning and then I would be without my stylus the rest of the day...
