I hear he was thwarted by a large man dressed in a Tick outfit brandishing a spoon.

"They dined on mince, and slices of quince, Which they ate with a runcible spoon; And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand, They danced by the light of the moon"

weird, i read a review of the new President of the United States album, and the reviewer quoted on of the lyrics, which mentioned . . . a spork. before today i'd never seen that word in my life.
weird con-incidence...

must be a glitch in the matrix.

True or False -- who knows: The word "spork" was invented on HBO's Not Necessarily the News on the Sniglets section, in the 1980's.

Isn't that ironic? You know, all he needed was a knife?

You may or may not be interested to know that this sort of coincidence is known as the Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon.

I one time took a metal spoon and modified it to be the first ever metal spork.

When I moved in with my second fiancee she demanded that I get rid of that spork and the other 12 that I had created. Apparently, having a collection of metal sporks carved from spoons didn't add the class to her thanksgiving dinner that she had hoped it would.

If I was going to Iraq, I'd take a titanium spork.

Sporks, is there anything they can't do!?
2008-03-02 05:33:55 PM  
Sporks should be illegal.
2008-03-02 05:34:48 PM  
the amazing thing is not that he tried to do armed robbery with a spork, but that he succeeded!

Hold the same volume of liquid as a spoon of equal size?

No mention of the Knork? or the Splayd? I'm ashamed of you farkers.

Here is an interesting japanese spork. Instead of the western philosophy of front fork/back spoon, it appears to be a left spoon/right fork.

2008-03-02 05:50:11 PM  

I wonder if someone remarked that the robber's appearance was "wacky".
2008-03-02 06:09:30 PM  
Was he attempting to rob a grapefruit?

FTFA: Now they're trying to determine if the weapon involved was a spork -- a hybrid of a spoon and fork found at fast-food restaurants.

Who on earth needs a definition for spork? Who doesn't know what a spork is? (Well, I guess Firefox's spell check doesn't know... it's underlined.)

opus2k7, where are you from? That word has been common in the American English lexicon for at least 25 years!

Sporks should be illegal.

When sporks are outlawed, only outlaws will have sporks.
2008-03-02 06:34:58 PM  
Sporks are definately my favorite utensil of all time. I used to have 2 metal sporks, but my ex kept them when I moved out. I think it might be just about time to replace them.

/great for chili or stews
//spork slashies FTW

, Since we're showing off our sporks,
my husband used to embarrass the heck out of me any time we'd go someplace like Tiffany's. The sales person would ask if they could help him find something. He'd answer "Why yes! I was hoping you could show me your line of sterling silver sporks..." I got so tired of it I finally had one made for him, with a 1 carat sapphire inset into the handle. I had one made for my son when he became 18. They are now proud members of the spork club. It has specific rules, such as, no one can buy one's own spork, it must be presented to one. One washes by hand one's own spork, never dishwashed!
