Although it's been quite some time since I studied the instructions on the Q-Tips box, I remember they include an admonishment that users should not insert the swab into the ear canal. Instead, the tip of the swab should be gently applied to the delicate shell-like part of the ear.

While that application is certainly not without its delights, it's nothing compared to the thrill of doing exactly what the box tells you not to do. I can't think of one person who, when presented with a Q-Tip, doesn't thrill over trying to tickle his or her brain with it.
