|Introduction||I made a profile so there'd be a way for people who read the comments I leave on Blogger to get to my blog on Wordpress without me using my Wordpress account to comment because then it won't email me follow up comments. This profile only exists for that little "my web page" thing over there, but you might also find my answer to the Random Question fascinating, especially if you're the type of person who's into etymologies and what they tell us.|

Do you believe that forks are evolved from spoons?
Yes. The word "spoon" comes from Old English "spon", which essentially translates to "woodchip." The implication there is that people originally ate using only chips of wood such as they might toss on the floor of a stable. Eventually they began to carve them. At some point, they probably thought it'd be good to combine cutlery with being able to skewer something, and thus the fork was born.
