I shall call it a Foroon.

December 17, 2009


So, I ‘had to’ order some stuff on the internet a while ago, and if you’ve never visited The Museum of Useful Things, I highly suggest you do. They don’t have a large inventory, but the things they have are pretty splendiferous. Stuff made of metal and canvas and grommets and such.

I bought some things that I needed, but on impulse I also ordered a combination spoon/fork. It arrived today, but ‘spork’ is a word too lowly for this beautiful, gadget-y thing.

Can you see me?

“Foroon” sounds much better. I christened it by eating ice cream with Grasshopper cookies mashed in.

Take that, Thin Mint Blizzard at Dairy Queen.

Verdict: The bowl of the spoon is a bit too deep for ice cream consumption, but I will totally keep it in my bag in case of an eating emergency.

    It looks like a ninja weapon. How do you say “Death by spoon” in Japanese?

    I picked up a couple of those for stocking stuffers -- but they are made of bamboo so they don’t look quite so dangerous.
