A spoon designed for food flinging. At $9.95, a wonderful idea, right?

But look at that piece of broccoli. On a regular spoon, the catapult would snap to a halt thanks to the rigidity of the handle. But when you replace the handle of a spoon with a spring, the spoon head just keeps going… in this case, stopping only when it hurtles into your knuckle, bursting it like a cartilaginous, fluid-filled blister. It appears that the common spoon is already the perfectly designed food catapult. As all kids knew deep down in their souls anyway.
