As a young man, Paul thought the spork was the best thing since sliced bread. A spork is simply a fork and a spoon combined into one. As Paul got older he soon realized there weren’t any metal sporks, only plastic. Paul soon took it upon himself to learn metallurgy so he could invent a metal spork. Several years later, Paul reached his dream of debuting his new metal spork to the invention comity. When Paul was asked how the newly founded utensil could be used, he explained that the utensil is intended to be used to eat everything. In a joking manner, Paul explained that unless you want to be drenched in milk or a hot liquid, using the utensil for cereal or soup was strongly ill-advised. After the interview, because of his joking manner about the spork, Paul’s dream was quickly crushed and the metal spork never made it.
