“Spooning leads to forking”

"Spooning leads to forking” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many gift items, such as posters, T-shirts and buttons. “Forking, an activity that tends to follow spooning” was cited in print in 2002.

“This came from my girlfriend’s t-shirt but it’s a great line… Spooning leads to Forking” was cited in January 2005. “Knifing” and “sporking” are sometimes added to the line. “Spooning leads to forking… use condiments” was cited on Twitter on December 20, 2008.

“The fork spooned the knife, so the spoon knifed the fork” is a related joke.

I’m getting forking agitated with all this forking talk. Can’t we talk about any forking thing else (like maybe spooning)?
