Vegetable dining tongs?

It's an asparagus server. It comes in a set of 6, put your fingers in the loops, pick up asparagus length wise when you squeeze the sides.

It is definitely serving tongs for use with asparagus- it is even MADE to look like stalks of asparagus!

I agree with cgrobin. The rings are where you place two fingers and a thumb when picking up the asparagus.
