How Many People Does It Take To Sharpen A Pencil In My Home?

In my home it takes two people to sharpen a pencil.

The “mini-sharpener” you see above has suction cups on the bottom that allow you to keep it on a surface while you sharpen the pencil. The problem is that the suction cups son’t work.

This is why it takes two of us to sharpen a pencil. However, it still takes but one of us to screw in a lightbulb.

It is okay that it takes two of us to sharpen a pencil because it takes two to make a thing go right.

Here is some history of pencil sharpeners. If you look at the top of the page, you will see links to more facts about the evolution of this device.
