Perky Rooster Canape Holder


Here’s an interesting party piece. Apparently you load up your toothpicks with pineapple chunks and mini-marshmallows, then stab them into the rooster’s chest like some poultry-poking toreador. The thing that fascinates me is the little cup formed by his tail. The seller suggests filling it with “flowers or whatever.” I’m not buying that. Yes, a bunch of herbs would look more like a rooster tail, but I’m thinking they would fall out of a space that’s fairly shallow and wider at the top. No, I believe that little cup is designed to hold a dipping sauce, giving the illusion that Mr. Rooster has an oozing sore just above his tail. Yum!


UPDATE: I have since been informed that Chicken Splinter here is solely a toothpick holder, and the tail cup is for more toothpicks. Oh, the disappointment! Scratch the poultry toreador and substitute a fable about Perky, the genetically engineered Porcupine Rooster. Or is this item a nod to St. Sebastian?
