“Is a cul-de-sac a spoon in the road?”

"Fork in the road” is a term, but what about “spoon in the road”? “Was walking, came to a fork in the road, and took the one less traveled. Then I came to a spoon in the road, and called it a cul-de-sac” was posted on Twitter on June 2, 2010. “So, how come a cul-de-sac isn’t called a spoon in the road?” was posted on Twitter on August 23, 2011.

“If a place where the road splits is a “fork in the road”, would a cul-de-sac be a spoon in the road?” was posted on Reddit—Shower Thoughts on July 12, 2014. “There’s a fork in the road. A spoon in the road could be a cul-de-sac. So, a spork in the road is a roundabout” was posted on Twitter on March 21, 2017.

So, there are “forks” in the road. Is a cul de sac considered a “spoon” in the road?

If a place where the road splits is a “fork in the road”, would a cul-de-sac be a spoon in the road?

There’s a fork in the road. A spoon in the road could be a cul-de-sac. So, a spork in the road is a roundabout.
