What’s a fork for?

NEWS COMMENT: Carillion mess is as complex as negotiations for Brexit

Have your say

Have you ever noticed it only really matters how many prongs are on a 
fork when you’re eating things like peas or baked beans?

You need four prongs on a fork because eating any less than four peas or baked beans in one mouthful is just pointless.

If it wasn’t for peas or beans, we could pretty much just have one prong on a fork as it can pick up most other things we need to eat.

So, if you don’t eat peas or beans, what I’m basically saying is you don’t need a fork at all – you could eat just as well with a knife and a compass!
