Stop playing with your food!!
When I was in Denmark in 2010 I was lucky enough to have my birthday while I was there and Susanne made me a traditional Danish birthday cake which includes all sorts of sweets on it.
While she was busy cooking I swiped some of the licorice strap and tatted a ring with it.
Well........ on a long car trip, I got a bit bored and, well, the snake lollies just jumped out and yelled TAT ME!!
So I did! (In my defence it WAS Susanne's birthday - I was just thinking of that fine cake!) My excuse and I am sticking to it!
