Split Personalities

Last week, I wrote about ugly stemware that you just flip over, depending on the type of drink you desire. I just read an article about flatware that has the same split personality: an updated version of the "spork." Unlike the original spork, which was a spoon with tines at its top, the new spork features a spoon at one end and a fork at the other. The two-headed monster would make a perfect companion to the dual Champagne/Martini glass. Now, they just have to invent a dinner table that turns into a bathtub when you flip it over.
