I thought it was so you could add crunchy bits as pizza toppings.

Could we do a tickie version of the jack-o-lopes and add some tiny twigs as antlers? We could start a thread in our craft section on how to make tick-o-lopes. We could mount them on acorn caps.

Uh huh. I could hang them all around hubby's goose mount. Wouldn't that get the attention of all his hunting buddies?!?!?!?!

Another idea would be to mount 12 of them in place of the numerals on an old-fashioned pendulum clock to see if the sound it made then would be "tick toc, tick toc..."

Pfft, I misspelled "tick". I need to use a spell-checker more often!

Could this mean the future demise of some ticks?
