A spork is not a cross between steak and pork!

Ah, that made me giggle.

For all those who _do_ believe that spork is a cross between steak and pork, here's the link..

Indeed. Before you know it, they'll be mixing cameras with phones and lima beans with dinner!

Why is this even a debate? The Spork is the utensil of the future. Step out of the dark ages and embrace the light that is the Spork. You must master your fear and hegemonize the terrorizing Spork swarm.

Maybe it's your backwards, northwesterly ways but Sporks and Tofu are awesome. Eating plain tofu is yes, bland and not at all appetizing but guess what? So is raw beef. You have to cook tofu (and tempeh) properly just the same way you have to season a steak or chicken breast properly. I recommend the Grit down here in Athens. They have a great cookbook full of vegetarian delights.

Ha ha! I now have an intertron reference to support my claim!

Wikipedia wrote:The two functions of fork and spoon are inherently opposed to each other in a spork, such that the slotted tines allow thin liquids to leak out of the bowl, while the fat triangular tines have poor solid-food penetration and retention of fresh salad vegetables and natural cooked meats such as steak. The spork is better suited for thick, chunky, and heavily-processed foods which require minimal cutting or preparation to ingest.

Oh god, we have another florp... :P

A sidenote, I LOVE how some of my mostest favourite comics have NO artistic merit at all, it's 100% content. That's awesome.

The other comic besides xkcd? Qwantz!
God does not play dice with the universe; He plays an ineffable game of his own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players, to being involved in an obscure and complex version of poker in a pitch dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a dealer who won't tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time.

I dunno, this one has more artistic merit in one frame than most comics have in their lifetime. Half the time I think it wins on subtle details alone.
