Can you have a fork in Canada and not know it?

The term “fork” has long been used to describe a knife and a spoon – much in the same way as the word “spork” does today. This is because a fork is what David Foster Wallace would call an “over-appellation”, a word invented by man to describe something that already has an accepted name. Using this reasoning, “spork” might be considered to be an over-appellation for a fork with a spoon attached.
However, in using this logic as a means to explain the fork miracle of Canada, we must take into account the fact that it is under the control of English-speaking people. It is well-known that Canadians do not use forks, but they do use sporks – meaning that it might be possible to say that Canadians are already using an over-appellation to describe their eating utensils.

Unlike sporks, forks have survived the test of time. They haven’t changed over 5,000 years because man hasn’t really come up with anything better for all that time. Sporks, on the other hand, are a fairly recent invention that people are just now beginning to warm up to. Of course there have been lots of attempts at creating the “perfect” spoon and knife combination but, like sporks, they have so far failed to survive the test of time. I must admit that I’m not a huge fan of sporks myself. I think they’re “so-so”.
But let’s return to forks. They are good, old-fashioned, tried and true eating utensils. Forks are considered by some people to be the penultimate of eating utensils when used in balance with a knife and spoon. Of course, your average bowler would disagree.
