Spoon
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

A spoon is a common eating utensil, or item of cutlery, like a small spade, that occurs in a number of sizes and forms and is also suitable for liquid food and for stirring, and can have a number of other uses, including: courtship, combat and musical entertainment, strangely enough. Obviously, the most widely used and well known use is for assistance in eating.

The variant of the spoon and the fork, the spork, has become popular in the past couple decades.
