A holiday gift presented to my teacher friend from a little German boy:
When the teacher stared at it in shock the mother helpfully said, "it's for viping!" and made a wiping gesture.
The best part is that my teacher friend is under 5 ft and the German woman is [Amazonian]. When she demonstrated how to vipe it was at roughly her crotch level so the shorter woman could see. It's a sponge by the way. For cleaning little preschool tables.
