The random fork post

Most of blogger's random questions are, in my opinion, complete bobbins.

The one about fork/spoon evolution is quite good though.

Forks probably evolved from knives - mannered people prior to their introduction had been using two knives to eat, and the earliest forks had no curve to their tines, so were used for spearing the food in a similar manner to the second knife. The curved fork wasn't introduced until the 18th century.
