OR

"What is it" is too easy, maybe "why" or "where"?

(Remember, the correct answers are normally not as much fun as the wrong answers)

It's either a spoon or a shoehorn. Decide which and don't switch...

A breakaway spoon (similar to a breakaway basketball hoop) for overly aggressive eaters!? Slows them down so their stomach has time to let the brain know they are full.

Nobody quite figured it out.

My wife bought some "microwave it in the container" food the other day that had a spoon with each container. As is common, there is an outer plastic lid that provides protection during shipment and prevents splattering in the microwave. Under the lid was a little packet of flavor powder and the spoon. A normal spoon won't fit so they make the spoon with a hinge in it. Pretty clever.

Nigh's #6 "I disagree, that looks nothing like a tomorrow" gets extra credit for making me remember some of my snarky comments from the old days before we were a cancel culture living in the land of the offended. I once had a vice president reviewing something with me and he said he wanted to be abreast in the situation. I replied that he didn't look like a breast.

It is a foldable spoon usually found within dry food boxes , like dry soup that needs to add boiling water, for reducing its size within the box limits.

This is a training spoon for infants.It prevents using the spoon in upside down mode before it gets to the mouth.Also works great for politicians at fund raising dinners, who don't know which way is up after flip-flopping positions so many times.

It reminds me of W.C.Fields,who was always prepared for a free meal or can of soup,and carried one in his pocket,beside his flask.

A famous quote of his I will always remember:

It ain't what they call you, it's what you answer to.

W. C. Fields
