Spoon
Posted 6/14/16 , edited 6/14/16

A spoon is a utensil consisting of a small shallow bowl, oval or round, at the end of a handle. A type of cutlery (sometimes called flatware in the United States), especially as part of a place setting, it is used primarily for serving. Spoons are also used in food preparation to measure, mix, stir and toss ingredients. Present day spoons are made from metal (notably flat silver or silverware, plated or solid), wood, porcelain or plastic.

I'm following the new trend of copy-pasting stuff from other websites. Enjoy.

Is this a thing now? I'll play along.


A spork is a hybrid form of cutlery taking the form of a spoon-like shallow scoop with two to four fork tines.[1] Spork-like utensils, such as the terrapin fork or ice cream fork,[2] have been manufactured since the late 19th century;[3] patents for spork-like designs date back to at least 1874, and the word "spork" was registered as a trademark in the US and the UK decades later. They are used by fast food restaurants, schools, prisons, the military, backpackers and in airline meals.

The word spork combines spoon and fork. Similarly, the word foon is a blend of fork and spoon. The word "spork" appeared in the 1909 supplement to the Century Dictionary, where it was described as a trade name and "a 'portmanteau-word' applied to a long, slender spoon having, at the end of the bowl, projections resembling the tines of a fork".

I think spoons are far superior when compared to sporks.

This paragraph proves that the fork is the greatest eating utensil!


As a piece of cutlery or kitchenware, a fork is a tool consisting of a handle with several narrow tines on one end. The fork is a primarily Western utensil, whereas in East Asia chopsticks have been more prevalent. Today, forks are increasingly available throughout East Asia. The usually metal utensil is used to lift food to the mouth or to hold ingredients in place while they are being cut by a knife. Food can be lifted either by spearing it on the tines or by holding it on top of the tines, which are often curved slightly. A fork is shaped in the form of a trident but curved at the joint of the handle to the points.

In the grand tradition of copy-paste news site threads, we need to have a very volatile argument over the subject. Potentially we can get off on an equally volatile tangent on forks and knives.

As an average fork only user, I find it highly offensive when people use knives to cut their food. Don't they know that knives kill people? Why would we want to incorporate them into our everyday lives?

Something to eat with all of these spoons;

Tastes like a good tapioca pudding, but refreshing. Don't try and substitute cornstarch with arrowroot powder, because the resultant abomination is hilariously slimy.

Forks and knives are off topic. I will report your posts if you keep this up. Create your own threads if you want to discuss forks and knives.
