“The fork spooned the knife, so the spoon knifed the fork”

"The fork spooned the knife, so the spoon knifed the fork” is a jocular, pun-filled saying about cutlery. The joke was posted on Twitter on November 23, 2013 and originated in The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories. Volume 3 (2013) by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

“Spooning leads to forking” is a related joke.
