Pre-chewed pencils

The ultimate in easy living: pencils sold with the manducation done for you. It is this point in the rise and fall of civilisations, I suppose, that necessitates a second Great Depression or some other great calamity, lest we disappear up our own collective backside (a horrible thought).

I thought that it was the actual gnawing process that aids the concentration, leading to production of brilliant ideas (or whatever). This wheeze seems, therefore, to be tantamount to a mental short circuit, with what consequences one can only speculate on - whilst chewing a pencil!
