Those people voting spork need a talking too. This will only increase world-wide spork proliferation. Sporkage everywhere! Imagine all the horror. Eventually there may be spork silverware in your own home! Face it folks, it's nearly as useless as those little flexible plastic knives. They cut toast, but that's about it.
Besides, I insist, it's not a spork, it's a foon...
FWIW, I was the first to vote P38. Which P38? The one where Larry explains regular expressions? Or the can opener? Heaven knows you can't eat using a can-opener. It sure beats the straw though.
Other good poll options would be "magically turn it into a pizza" or "increase proximity to beer source". I still want to see this Mindstorm spork (no! foon!) however.
My (first) programming injury was brought on by a fork, inserted in mouth, and not successfully de-inserted before attempting to chew. I was thinking so hard about the current mindbender (OS deadlocks) that I'd just not enough cycles left to successfully eat at the same time.
For some reason, no one knowing me seems surprised when I tell them about it.
