Growing up the height of comedy was placing whatever I was eating directly over the tines of my fork so it looked like a macaroni fork. I could pull that gag with macaroni, green beans, and french fries. Pitchman Anthony Sullivan is pitching a new McDonald’s invention called the “Frork,” which seems to have come right out of my childhood imagination.
It is a plastic utensil that lets you cram three fries inside to use as a fork. Once you’re done eating with the Frork, you get to eat the tines. It may be the best thing to happen to food since fire. I really hope this is a real product, I’d rather like one.
The pitch is for it to go along with the new McDonald’s Signature Crafted Recipes sandwiches. I like that McDonald’s is trying to make itself back into a place where people like to eat. Things have become largely inedible at my local location. At least the fries are still good.
