The earliest record of Father's Day was found in the ruins of Babylon, when, 4,000 years ago, a young boy named

Elmesu carved a Father's Day message on a clay card. He wished his Babylonian father good health and a long life.

"Some take a pinch between thumb & forefinger; others by putting a pinch in the snuffbox:

the depression caused in the back of the hand by keeping the fingers together and stretching the thumb.
A snuffbox must be airtight, with a strong hinge.
    It must not be too big - containing too much snuff for a day's use, or, equally bad, air.
    Nor too small:  nothing could be more frustrating than to find yourself running out of snuff in the middle of

your planned one-hour speech in the House of Lords.
    It should have a flat lid: if the lid bulges it contains unwanted air."

in collecting these specialized food preparation tools. They are often displayed en masse -

their wide handles somewhat resembling winged hubcaps.  Widths can run up to a foot over these handles.
