    The whole point is that sporks lead to obesity because suet loving chicken wing reactionaries can consume more calories without changing utensils.

    Think of the children!

    If you identify something beforehand as satire, it doesn't really count

    of course it does. are you actually suggesting satire must be discovered after the fact?

    please educate yourself on satire. thank you.

    To fully appreciate satire, it must be spontaneous

    no, not at all. hence why the onion is such a popular website. many people, if they are unaware it is satire, will not appreciate the content. i know you've seen people suckered by onion articles, same holds true for any satire.

    satire is best enjoyed when you know it is satire.

    Well yes, but in the case of this thread, it was moved to the Rubber Room for lack of an appropriate place.
    I originally put it in firearms... borderline, at best. Had there been a specific 2nd Amendment forum, it could have stayed there, I suppose.

    A young lady I know got a 1-week suspension in high school for possessing a spork.

    Well, okay, she took it a little farther. A teacher told her to get rid of it, and she replied by frantically jabbing herself in the chest with it and yelling "SEE! I'M NOT DYING! IT'S NOT A DANGEROUS WEAPON!". The teacher had no sense of humor.

    All the grownups she knew laughed about it. We told her to enjoy her vacation from school.
