Forkin’ Cool February 28, 2008

Posted by skinbad in Personal Experiences, Travel.

I learned this from our Malaysian waiter on our cruise last summer. Just try to do it like it looks. Put the spoon inside the tines, then run one toothpick through the tines and kind of flatten or tip the fork/spoon combo as shown. Then balance it on the toothpick tips.


I should have put one up at the IB Super Treats table, but I forgot. I was still too stunned from R.G.s incredible rubber band trick.

What if you don’t have an apple?

Forget the apple and the second toothpick (the verticle one). You can balance the middle part of the horizontal toothpick on the edge of the cup. Set the part that hangs over the inside of the cup on fire with a lighter, knock off the ash, and it’s on the edge. You can even take it off and put it back.

This is cool, Skinny. I want to try it.

Yeah, that’s cool. I’m glad I remembered to show you the famous Geezer Rubber Bands of Doom.

Geezer Rubber Bands of Doom

^ I’m still shuddering. You will regret that trick when Satan comes to collect your soul.

“You will regret that trick when Satan comes to collect your soul.”

Michael’s exaggerating. The sensation is actually a lot like passing the bar.

Do you still have a WP? Drive a toothpick into him in a soft, fleshy spot.

Hey skinnie, did you know this post is featured on the WordPress home page under the “In Travel” section? Kewl!

I did not know that. Thanks compos. However, that probably means Winst*n will show up. The pic does have an alarmingly racist yellow hue. The Lord giveth; the Lord sendeth the asshats.

Congrats, Skinny!
