The only place I have seen sporks is in fast food restaurants. I wondered if children would know what they are, but apparently they are common in school cafeterias, because my six year old identified it with one glance.
Spork is a cross between a spoon and a fork. He has the rounded lower head of spoon, but on top of that poke three short tines of a fork. His mother is a beautiful spoon and his father is a sharp looking fork. Unfortunately for Spork, cutlery mixing is not common place and he sticks out like a sort thumb in the cutlery drawer. In Spork's kitchen, knives marry knives and spoons stick to their own kind. Poor Spork.
