Introduction: The World's Shortest Pencil?

Picture of The World's Shortest Pencil?

It's a tiny bit of pencil, shaved by hand with a blade. I'll give it back to the kid I got it from.

I sharpened a pen once.......

freeza36 (author)FruitbytheFace2011-12-25

everyday my friend goes to the front of the class and "sharpens" his pen for like 10 minutes, just so he can talk to people. He passes right under the teachers' radar

Jimmy Proton (author)lemonie2010-08-08

Kryptonite (author)2010-08-08
