Whether you think this ranks among the best or most ridiculous Star Wars merchandise of all time will depend entirely on how much enjoyment you'll get from saying "I find your lack of toothpicks disturbing." Over and over again, until no one ever wants one of your damned toothpicks.
Produced by Bandai, the Darth Vader ToothSaber -- yes, that's what it's called! -- is a toothpick dispenser so absurdly genius that I can't believe no one has offered them before.
As you can see from the images, with a simple flick of a lever, the Dark Lord of the Sith swings his lightsaber, and with it, a toothpick capable of cutting down tiny Jedi, spearing cheese squares or dislodging that annoying piece of summer sausage from your teeth.
The Darth Vader ToothSaberwill be available in June in Japan for about $26. Let's hope that it'll be available in other countries -- and that it's only the first Star Wars ToothSaber in a series.
