Artist Nicole Wermers has created the “manners” teaspoon, a double ended spoon that allows you to avoid the dreaded faux pas of scooping sugar with a spoon you have already used to stir your coffee or tea with. Spoon, you have my attention.
Each end of the spoon is different to reflect the changing shape of teaspoon bowls at different points in the twentieth century: the smaller end reflects the 1950s and the larger, the 1980s. The double ended spoon was created for The Tate Cafe in London, and apparently has gone over well… as many have been disappearing off of the tables.
I remember the day I first saw a spork. A spoon AND a fork, together in one magical piece of cutlery. I was amazed and excited about the possibilities. That day has been eclipsed… Imagine the possibilities. Not unlike the Sith double ended light sabre, you could double your efficiency when eating ice cream or feeding twins. If someone asks you for a bite, you no longer have to swap spit, hoping that the other person is not sick. SCOOP JAM WITHOUT USING A PEANUT BUTTER SOILED INSTRUMENT!!!
Bonus Trivia! Can you name the parts of a spoon?
There is a bowl and a stem. The bowl has two parts: the bowl and the bowl tip. The stem sometimes is split into throat and handle.
