The description of Spork doesn't make it clear if the article is about the utensil or about people's reactions to badfic. The Laconic page and about half of the examples imply the former, but the entire first paragraph and the rest of the examples refer to the latter.

If this article is about the utensil, the opening paragraph should be removed entirely, if not the rest of the article as well (are sporks a funny prop la Fundamentally Funny Fruit or just People Sitting On Chairs?). If it's supposed to be about reacting to badfic, we might as well do the same and make it a redirect to MST.

Apparently, this is a Fan-Speak term.

And that's pretty much the only concrete thing I've been able to learn from this page.

I think we should split the page into three: Spork (a disambiguation page), Badfic Spork, and Sporks Are Funny.

Currently taking a break from the site. See my user page for more information.

Zapped digressions and off-the-mark "examples." The definition of its use by fans is all that suits our purposes.
