Spoon Fed Statistics

How often do you use a spoon compared to a knife and fork?

My breakdown over the last 7 days

Spoon - 9 times (7 to measure coffee, 1 to stir noodles, one to eat soup)

Fork - 18 times

Knife - 14 times

I use a fork twice as much as a spoon. I was told that this is directly related to my aversion to dairy and I am so much lower then normal since I don't eat ice cream or cereal, but I still have to call bullshit.

The spoon is the least used utensil and I am hoping some of you can help me prove it. Anyone interested in keeping a utensil log for me? I need more data and a bigger sample size.

With two teenagers (read: major cereal and yogurt consumers), our household runs out of clean spoons faster than anything... Scott and I rarely use spoons (since we don't keep a pint of Haagen Dasz in the frig anymore)... I'll try to keep a log when I run the dish washer!

I have to use a spoon at work to eat my lunch because everyone steals the forks, so I use spoons probably more then forks. Try eating a steak with a spoon. Epic fail.

Prisoners get only spoons for eating cuz forks and knives, well, you can figure it out.
