fork that lets you eat with your fingers
Conventional fork with prongs substituted by fake finger tips,
thus enabling those who prefer to eat with their fingers to do
so using a proper utensil - additional chopfinger variation for
oriental eating - i.e. chopsticks which also terminate in finger

||Coowie, I like this idea!
"Stop eating with your fingers!"
"I'm not eating with my fingers. I'm eating with my fingerfork! Duh!"
||Oh darn, I read it wrong again. I thought it was a fork-like utensile that you could slid over your fingers. Its your fault [jurist]!
||By the way [xenzag] welcome to the halfbakery! Where screaming is optional.
||Don't let my links distract you, [Susan]. You read the idea properly the first time. I just could not find a picture of a "fork ring" that had the tines pointed in any way that would be useful in eating, so I took a small liberty with the concept. [xenzag] may disagree with my sense of proportion.
||I gave you a bun for a second but retracted it after trying to eat with my new imaginary fingerfork. ... I felt unfamiliar but uncomfortable sensation in my wrist when scooping up food ... I think it has something to do with the angles involved.
||wouldn't this be like eating with a hand rake? link
