    I wonder if native asians who normally use nothing but chopsticks feel equally as silly if they use a fork or spoon or knife?

    I feel brilliant eating with a spork! Come on, it's both a spoon AND a fork.

    Congratulations on your 3000th post by the way.

    I know that SARS made Asians very suddenly see the wisdom of serving spoons as being superior to everyone dipping in the communal pot with their chopsticks...

    Hmmm, I think the level of stupidity is inverse to the intensity of my hunger. So if I'm really hungry, then I don't feel as stupid. :tongue:

    Interesting thread MR keep 'em coming. :smile:

    Benny Hill music OH CRAP!! Now that is sooo stuck in my head!
    (bashes head against wall) Nope it is still there. ah nuts.

    But seriously a spork is just a evolutionary result of society trying to ahm, I dunno - trying to spork us over?
    I feel really sporked over now that I think about it.

    Nope, I don't feel silly. I like sporks. :up: If I could find regular utensil sized ones in metal I'd buy them. :biggrin: But I'm wierd :rofl: I've only ever found serving sized ones. I can be a pig sometimes, but not that big of a pig!


    I like calling them runcible spoons just to confuse people. :redface:

    Never heard a spork called a "foon" though. :confused:

    i can only eat certain foods with them. Corn is definately one of them, the spork makes it so much easier to scoop off the plate.

    I love sporks they're one of the best inventions ever. From that day in Junior High when I first saw and used one up until now, they are practical and now come in many colors, not just white.

    Think about it-A spork can pierce several peas and then you can lob them at your enemy one at a time, removing them and placing them in the bowl before pulling back and letting it fly...much easier than continually returing to the plowl (the plate and bowl combo) for each pea.
