As so often happens after I post a list, I was struck by an omission. I left a spoon off yesterday’s utensil list. A big spoon:
Claes Oldenburg‘s Spoonbridge with Cherry sculpture, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
It occured to me that where there is a spoon, there is likely also a fork. And sure enough, there exists at least one giant fork:
A giant fork sculpture by Jean-Pierre Zaugg and Georges Favre, stuck into Lake Leman in front of the Alimentarium (the Food Museum) in Vevey, Switzerland.
In case you would like a few more utensil-related tidbits to stick your fork into, I offer up a quiz. (First seen at raincoaster.)
You Are Chopsticks
People see you as exotic, unusual, and even a bit intimidating.
You are a difficult person to figure out.
In truth, you try to live a very simple life.
(It would appear that I am actually two utensils, as chopsticks are generally not a single item. I suppose if I came up as a single chopstick it would mean that I am a rather dull instrument, largely useless except for clumsy poking and stabbing.)
