Subject: (urth) chopsticks

I'm not sure if anyone was confused by Apple Blossom's statement in 
"Underhill", but when she says "there is also my chop-my seal perhaps?" she is 
first talking about saving her chopsticks, then decides to make herself more 
important by talking about her seal and defers talk of saving the "the ivory 
sticks that feed [her]" for a sentence or two.  The joke is that the magical 
box is a white box of chinese take out food, I guess - if there is a joke at 
all there. Alas, the mystification of Chinese food in the west seems a major 
theme of this story.
