I'm thinking they'd be great for public displays.
Seperated among several minifigs:
"Please" "Don't" "Touch"
"Visit our website" "www.LUG.com"
"www" "lug" ".com"
Or you could use them as party favors. Get a bunch of generic figs and use them to mark seating assignements. Would be great for a LEGO themed wedding.
Give a man a fire and he'll be warm for a day.
