Ed went to Baltimore last weekend and came back with sporks from the American Visionary Art Museum. This isn't your typical fanged spoon, where the cutlery duo sits on one end. This involves a spoon on one side, fork on the other and a serrated side. Sporknife?
So far we've used them to cut oranges (sharp enough), scoop up oatmeal (deep enough), and even open a plastic-wrapped Dr. John album. So multi-talented, that spork! Ergonomically comfortable, these Light My Fire brand sporks were designed by Joachim Nordwall. They come in 19 colors, and when ordered in bulk, special theme packages exist like "combat" (green and gray) and "bistro" (your mod red and black). As tough as life can be sometimes, it's good to know sporks exist. Available for $2.79 each on Amazon.
