The Secret About Disposable Chopsticks

I thought everyone knew this but apparently not? I saw a friend post this question on FB asking why wooden chopsticks come joined together. Check it out:
  1. You know your basic wooden chopsticks that you get at Asian restaurants?
    Not all of them are this style.
  2. And how you have to break them apart to use them?
  3. There's a reason for that.
  4. Next time, snap off the end instead.
  5. And prop your chopsticks on them instead of on the table.
  6. That's why they're made that way!
