"Spork" is used as a term to mock and criticize So Bad, It's Good and So Bad, It's Horrible works, since sporks have the right size and shape to dig out an eye. A bad Fan Fic, for example, can be described as "It sporked me.", i.e: so bad it made me want to take my eyes out so I wouldn't have to view it any more. Not to be confused with "sporking", another name for MSTing. Also not to be confused with a Portmanteau Couple Name for Spock and Kirk. An actual spork is a cross between a spoon and a fork. (Rich Hall could claim naming rights, thanks to a "Sniglets" segment from a 1983 Not Necessarily The News episode.) They are commonly found in places that don't care about the quality of the food they serve you. Sporks are also a notable example of utensil inbreeding.
