Zing! spoon tries to perfect the art of food catapulting

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.

    Oh noes! Escalation of the food wars. Next we’ll have steam powered souffle trebuchets and nuclear cream pie launchers.

    Funny they’ll spring Broccoli, but no one ever wants to spring for dessert. L(

    That problem could easily be fixed with a piece of metal acting as a stop for the spring.
