Get back to me when they figure out how to see the tiny fractures in the chip that cause it to suddenly break off upon encountering a tiny bit of resistance from the dip.

Anyone with a bit of civilized upbringing and common sense should know that you spoon a bit of dip on the plate you are using and dip from there. If you are not using a plate, you are doing it wrong.

In my book, those 'scoop' abomination things simply don't count as tortilla chips.  I don't care what they're made of or how they taste, the shape is just plain wrong.  The correct way to dip from a dense kind of dip like guacamole is all in the wrist.  Go straight in, and twist out, so you're not just lifting all that weight straight up.

Years ago, I was unemployed and had a housesitting gig in Sonoma,California - the best time I ever had being unemployed. At a networking function I attended, I got to use one of these:

I'm back to being an employed corporate drone in my adopted home of the Upper Midwest, and I've always figured this ingenious device would find its way out here. How many times have you needed one of these? Someone is missing a good opportunity. Many a lame company function could be made slightly less lame with at least letting people free up a hand.

Family dinner?

I would absolutely serve chips and dip of some sort at any informal party type of gathering at my home.
If the attendance is large enough, I might ask the guests to bring their own chair.

While holding the plate of chips and dip they could at least sit down and place the drink between their legs.
If they are lady enough to be drinking out of a wine goblet, I'd try to accommodate them with a table.

Yes, yes, you have to scoop for salsa. However, this is probably sufficient:

If, on the other hand, you have so much salsa on your chip that it's already touching your thumb when you level out and you have to quickly jab it into your mouth before it leaks onto the floor / your shirt, I will send you to the store to buy ingredients to make more salsa so that the normals can enjoy it, too.

Farking shear, how does it work?

If you're breaking chips because the dip is viscous enough to cause stress failure perpendicular to the face of the scooping material, then insert the material straight in and swipe it sideways, like a credit card in a slot, to take advantage of the increased shear value parallel to the face of the material. If the dip is viscous enough to be causing this problem in the first place, then enough of it will adhere to the chip.

Physics, biatches.

Chips (and fries) are merely a vector for the good stuff. Corn chips aren't worth eating without salsa or like, cheese dip. Potato chips get a pass though if they're Lays brand...
