Quoth regarding NANFA-- earthworms squiggle:

<snip, etc., etc.>

This thread leads to a question. In Innes' day, you could buy
handy-dandy earthworm shredders. Many years ago I saw a picture
of a set of these things in Aquarist & Pondkeeper. They are
basically aluminum blocks, with concentric, circular grooves cut into
the face of each block. You put the worm(s) between the two
faces and rubbed the blocks together, and VOILA! Sliced and diced!

Anybody ever seen these for real, or know where I could get some?
