On second thought I’m not going to buy any new plastic forks

09/15/2010 By Shawn Burns

Because look, the little plastic forks are just as pointy as the metal forks we use, and actually since most metal forks have square-tipped tines and most plastic forks have circular-tipped tines the metal forks are actually LESS pokey unless they are used to stab with a force no toddler can muster. (Like, if fending off a burglar I’d go with a metal fork over a plastic fork because the plastic fork would just break with 200 lbs of stabbiness behind it.)

So, no more plastic forks.
