Well the name says it all, a untinsil with a spoon on one end and a fork on the other. You may tell me "they have sporks you know" but sporks dont always work to their full potential you cant twirl spaghetti with a spork,you never get enough soup in a spork, bla bla bla. Its slightly longer than a traditional spoon so the fork doesnt touch you whilst you slurp you soup.

Standard German WW II issue to 18.5 million men in uniform, this one is even collapsible. [jurist, Mar 08 2006, last modified Mar 10 2006]

These are real, and have been for some time. Which doesn't explain the fishbones... [neutrinos_shadow, Jan 14 2020]

       You'd get splattered with fodder.

       But you need a seperate fork and spoon to be able to twirl spaghetti.

       Not if you put two hinges in the handle.

       But what if you forget which end you are using and try to eat your soup with the fork side. What then? You starve, that what. What does that get you? Slow death and malnutrition, both very unpleasant.

       Why, have you ever forgotten which end of a utensil you are using before? I mean, get a regular spoon backwards, and it's not going to do you any good either.   

       I don't know why everyone's so down on this idea, I thought it was kind of cute, even if slaith's spelling is for shit.

       Umm.. I don't want to talk about it, okay? A lot of people got hurt that day and, .. I just don't want talk about it. <sobs and turns dramatically away>   

       I'm not particularly against this idea. It actually might be useful on a camping trip.

       My main problem with it (though not bad enough for a [-] vote) is what happens when you need to use a fork and a spoon. You're just asking for tomato sauce all over your hand.
