I thought you meant what I'd prefer to use as a method for removing someones heart. Point to note: it has to be a blunt spoon.

Spoon, definitely. So you can have a bit of the juice everytime!

Please don't tell him (I'm pretending not to be bothered) but I am devasted. It's like someone has torn out my heart and stamped all over it. I feel like he needs to share that pain.

I just went to get him his morning coffee and Bagel from the station and then remembered I will never be that honoured again

Re: spoon or fork, a friday poll

Spoon without a doubt, I regard a fork as a weapon

Re: spoon or fork, a friday poll

For those who are interested we have a book running on Woli's response to this thread.

10:1 multiquote with references to Swissair
7:1 multiquote with references to former Yugoslavia

3:1 simple reference to former Yugoslavia

and 2:1 multiquote with amusing yet difficult to follow story about a time when he had neither spoon nor fork and somehow made do with a Victorinox knife--- with a bonus of 10% if he diverges into the difference between Victorinox and Wenger.

Only catch is you will have to be present on the forum at 2am when he makes his appearance .

Re: spoon or fork, a friday poll

I've gone for fork. I hate spoons and I dislike most soups. If I came across a good french onion I'd just drink it out the bowl (if I could only have forks)

I will rack up a solid 7:2 for any reference to the Maghreb.
