While this looks like a great solution for those with some skill and a good ball peen hammer, there are easier things to do for those of us too lazy lacking the talent to beat those spoons into submission.
1.) Thicken everything with cornstarch until it will stay on a fork.
2.) Pour any liquidy stuff in a glass instead of a bowl and sip it.
3.) Use a straw. This works better with solid cereals and milk. Cheerio-like food-like substances seem specifically designed to foil this method, but it works with corn flakes.
@rockblossom Nix on Campbell’s Chicken Noodle Soup as well. Every time I try it the damn noodles get stuck in the straw. I’m thinking of checking the those huge straws that go with giant insulated mugs; at least they’d likely be wide enough to accommodate the noodles.
@magic_cave Noodles are clearly in the category of “thicken until they stay on a fork” foods, unless you are adept with chopsticks. The Mediocrebot grabber tools might also work if the handles were shorter or my arms were longer, but they didn’t work well for me.
I thought this was bogus until this morning, I picked up a spoon out of the silverware drawer and noticed it was faulty! I was going to the workshop to grab my hammer and correct it, but dropped the spoon. When I picked it up, I noticed the fall had fixed the spoon! Crazy but true!!
