Variable length spoon

Whilst it is well known that "He who sups with the devil should have a long spoon" very little is known about currently wise spoon lengths for Satanic meals at other times of day.

This product is a spoon with a pantographic section and so would conform to acceptable spoon length parameters for brunch, elevenses, high tea and so on.

Profits (if any) to be ploughed into the mutable cutlery object, made out of the same liquid metal terminators seem to be made of. It has a camera which instantly clocks the cutlery items being used by others at formal dinners. It then morphs into that shape, so avoiding embarrassment with the fish knife etc,

Beware the Great Satan [8th of 7, Aug 03 2013]

       A set of three spoons, similar to the size range of the katana-wakizashi-tanto arrangement, would probably cover most eventualities.   

       Although probably not as sharp …

       Better luck next time <seal ink>

       Aha, my fine feathered friend, I have prior art to your prior art..   

       A) your spoons have "no pantographic section" useful for trimming nails and accurate reproductions of pantomimes.   

       B) That's a spoon on a bit of car aerial, with no ability to resist a twisting force. Getting gazpacho over the lord of lies probably won't go down too well.

       // with no ability to resist a twisting force. //   

       If the shaft has an eliptical cross section instead of circular, moderate twisting torque can be acommodated. A narrower bowl to the spoon would give lower torque.

       Ah! Eliptical cross section... well on your way to inclusion in ECVPU [link].

       The handle could also usefully incorporate a laser pointer.

       //variable depth spoon etc in 2017.   

       Gosh. I'm ahead of me own time, fractionally.   

       //incorporate a laser pointer. (Groans upon realising) of course there will be Powerpoint in hell.

       // Powerpoint in hell //   

       They are synonymous, Shirley ? PP is an acknowledged spawn of the Beelzebub Corporation ("How Do You Want To Suffer Today ?") run by The Great Satan himself, ghastley cardigan and all.

       I think I actually prefer "ghastley" to the correct spelling, you know.   

       Not only is there PowerPoint in hell, but all slides are prepared on a Mac but displayed using a PC.

       // prefer "ghastley" to the correct spelling //   

       Correct ? Ah, but Mervyn Peake would understand the allusion …
8th of 7, Aug 04 2013
  

       Well, he's dead, so probably not.
not_morrison_rm, Aug 06 2013
  

       //Mervyn Peake would understand the allusion//   

       Ah yes, the famous "allusion of correct spelling".

       used to work with a chappy called Ooh Shun in Thailand. Annoyingly he never took a day off work due to sickness.

       //Variable length spoon// Would that be 'spoon', 'spooon', or sometimes 'spooooooon'?
AusCan531, Aug 08 2013
  

       But... there is no spoon...
