Though I'm not exactly designed to
Still I'm sometimes used

To make numbers,
shapes,
and letters.

Frequently I come in fancy flowery flourish,
Used by men, women, citizens, and tourists.

I do bend
I do break
Yucky stuff I'm willing to take.

What am I?



Answer

A toothpick!

It's used, though not purposefully, to make the forms of numbers, shapes, and letters. It's commonly used to poke and pick up foods so people can eat, or to actually pick out all the yucky stuff in their teeth. Sometimes they have that fancy colored plastic decoration for parties and such, and they are used by all kinds of people.
