Foon or Spork?

Possibly the most useful picnic/fast food culinary utensil invented s the combination of fork and spoon. Some call it the spork, some call it the foon.

According to Wikipedia(and that will be the catch phrase of the next five years) the spork was invented in the middle ages and not, as I thought, in the last 100 years.

Personally I feel they work best when you are eating a baked potato with beans and cheese although some will say they are useless at being a spoon (too shallow) and for eating meat (forks too short).

You won’t find the words Foon or Spork in Microsoft’s spell check dictionary you will find them on the tip of your tongue.
