Well, he ruined that guy's canoe.

Spoiler! :
That's such an old joke/"no shit, there I was" story, even I've heard it. The guy with the MRE spoon is typically a Marine in the telling, though.

Yeah, but that was a military "assault" spoon. It's brown and has a long handle. No civilian needs a spoon like that.

The traditional spooning would be even worse for the enemy I think.

Isn't it a bitch that the load out prevents easy access to a pistol or a knife when you are trying to kiss someone. "Bill Clinton on his honeymoon?"

I always liked that scene. Especially when he picks up the sardine can key and sets it down as the next weapon.

Next someone will start selling the "tactical spork" in black and coyote tan. "You can open and eat MRE's , Cafeteria mystery meat, or cut throats and gouge out eyes, a must have for tough days at the mall ; Donut holder optional.

A clear-cut case of Necro-posting here, but I hope this story does not become too well-known, I realize I have boxes of this lethal weapon at home, as well as the more dangerous picnic knife, spork, fork, and a whole drawer of the old-fashioned metal versions of each in my kitchen.

Yikes. I have a titanium spork that I bought on a lark. I hope I'm not inviting any BATFEspork attention.

The only thing that keeps those two places from demanding that all residents live on nothing but a diet of yogurt from a tube is that dairy offends vegans.

Just a random thought, but wouldn't he have been able to dispatch the goblin easier with a Niblick or a Cleek?
