But there is some fun to be had: clasp it frequently to your bosom, mutter strange invocations to ineffable pagan gods and worry the bejaysus out of passers-by and fellow Tube passengers... Proclaim it the symbol of the Church of the Lucid USB Key and see how many wealthy followers you can rally to your cause...

What kind of wood the drive's made out of we can't say, which may limit its appeal to holly hewing folk of the Druidic persuasion.
