Oh, wow!  I thought I was the only plastic-chewer in the world!  There are
still books in the library in the town where I grew up that have little
quarter-circles of plastic gone from the corners of the protective covers,
because I pulled them off and chewed them!  Insulation off wires is also
good, and so are buttons.  I don't like bits of plastic cup so much, though,
they tend to be too sharp. :-)

Actually, I've seen them - and quite recently - on British TV channels.
Also on bus stops.

Until the sky falls on our heads...
