The writing’s on the wall, but if you ever find yourself ending up in such a position, perhaps you might want to take a look at the $15.99 Giant Inflatable Pencil. This is one pencil that you would definitely be unable to place on your ear while you mull over a particular problem, and neither can you chew on it, since it would not taste as good as wood. Of course, chewing on it would also result in it losing the ability to inflate, being punctured and all. When fully inflated, the Giant Inflatable Pencil stands at 17” long, requiring a full handed grip to hold it down. Just make sure that there is an actual pencil placed in the base of this Giant Inflatable Pencil, and you’re good to go. Definitely an attention puller, this!
