Not only do you carry nail clippers to take care of your personal grooming needs when you are at your desk at work, on the metro, on a plane, walking down the street, in the airport lounge (Todd) all things I have seen. You also keep them handy to trim your food’s nails. A friend of mine who works at the CCTV building in Beijing (the one that looks like pants) took this when eating at the cafeteria. I am concerned he was eating chicken feet and will take that up with him later. I have heard them called chicken paws and chicken claws. I thought it was a translation thing when going from Chinese to English. I am rethinking that.. they are really chicken claws, I think chicken talons is the better word choice. EEEEWWWW!
