    ...to call those things you use to pick up loose bread rolls and things at the bakery 'clippers'?

    'sif you go to a 'bakery' that isn't just a corner of the supermarket
    Keep thinking it'll be alright if I just get on the road
    If I run I can free my worried mind
    Keep thinking of the day I die when I lose my heavy load
    But I wouldn't want to leave you behind

    Bonn has a bakery roughly every 100 yards. And every one of them has a different trademark name for their bread, which makes it hard to work out what to buy - but sometimes it's brilliant.

    Plus there's like tons of snacks you can buy as well. Love me a bakery.

    And my glass of water belongs to the thirsty?
    And yet I eat and drink.

    Surely you can only use the word clippers to describe an object that's clipping something.
