Stash one right alongside your maxed-out credit cards, bend it open, and dig in. Hopefully, you didn’t charge lunch again.
The Spork is a confusing utensil, that in theory has the scooping and liquid-holding properties of a spoon, combined with the food-stabbing features of a fork. However, with the spoon part too shallow to hold an acceptable amount of soup, and tines too short and stubby to properly penetrate anything firmer than a canned peach, the spork has become one of the longest standing jokes in culinary history.
But where did this malformed utensil come from? What was the reasoning behind this seemingly useless eating tool? And most importantly, who is ultimately responsible for inventing it? Foodiggity has the answer… sort of.
The Twin One knife and fork companion set is brought to us by designers Adrian and Jeremy Wright. Not since the fork and spoon merged to create the anomaly we know as the spork, has utensil fusion been so cool.
Here the knife and fork join at the end to create chopsticks — seemingly to help white people eat rice. Now, after a few failed attempts, you can unsnap the utensils and go right back to eating with your fork. Good try though.
