Splinters are small foreign objects that penetrate and get embedded under your skin. They cause irritation and can lead to infection. You can get metal, plastic, and fiberglass splinters, but most of the time you get a splinter from something wooden, like an old dock or a pair of cheap chopsticks. Most people use tweezers to remove the splinter. They aren’t just for plucking your unibrow. Splinters suck, the lone exception being Splinter from the Ninja Turtles.
