The humble chopstick has become a weapon of crime in China, as this amazing footage of an opportunist thief shows.
The man pounces on an unsuspecting teenager, scoping out his pockets before casually bringing out his chopsticks and slyly removing his wallet. He even does some brilliant play-acting to put the victim off his scent when he realises he's been rumbled.
Of course, this is just the latest in the series of 'utensils gone bad' - the knife, of course, is well known, the devil has a fork, and the spoon has been used for gouging. Who knows what's next? We await reports of the first person to be colandered to death; it's just a matter of time.
