One of those ones that are a parallelogram in profile with two different coloured ends. It's subtly un PC due to its connotations for Americans.

Subtle, yes, and easy to draw too! I like that. A rubber with oblique ends, one (soft) end for smudging pencil marks and the other (unusable) end for tearing holes in the paper.

Up it goes, looking not a bit like a prophylactic. In my schooldays condoms were commonly called johnnies, short for rubber johnny, so a request to borrow someone's rubber was often met with an overt nudge, wink and 'oo-er missus'. If it passed for humour then, I'm sure it's good enough for now.
