Dutch designer Dave Hakkens came with a simple yet brilliant solution (aren't they always?) to people's obsession of chewing on the back of their pens: make a pen you can chew on and, if you want, eat entirely.
"When I found the shape and candy, I made a final model in peppermint flavour. The candy which is used doesn't stick on anything and doesn't feel dirty when you hold it in your hands or when eating it afterwards" he says.
I'd get no work done with a pen like this *NOM NOM*.
