The multi-tasking baguette

Everyone knows what a baguette is.  Don’t they?  Here’s one:

But here in France, a baguette is so much more.

It’s a conductor’s baton.

It’s a wand for a wizard or a fairy.

It’s a chopstick.

And it’s also beading for those woodwork projects.

And a divining rod.

As well as a drumstick.

Or the side-trim on your car.

There seem to be one or two other things it could mean as well.  Who knew that one small word could have so very many different uses?
