I must argue that forks are better than spoons and my opponent must argue that spoons are better than forks.


I accept my opponents offer.
Debate Round No. 1



Forks are better at stabbing. It can be used to pick up food but doubles as a defensive weapon. A fork is a far superior defensive weapon than a spoon is with its three prongs and stabbing abilty. It has a design similar to a pitchfork which is an actual weapon. How would you defend yourself with a giant spoon? yeah, didn't think so.

Unlike spoons, forks can't be used to hold liquid drugs while they're being smoked. Forks prevent you from becoming a drug addict while spoons help turn you into one.

If you've ever done the dishes then you know how dangerous spoons can be. if you ever let water pour over a spoon you'll get water splashing everywhere. Forks are safe and reliable, with no worrying about messes.

Forks are a better knife substitute. This means that all benefits incurred by knives are inherited to the fork if there aren't any knives. This means your ability to cut, spread, and stab will be with a fork, not a spoon.

Spoons hold liquid, sure, but so do cups and cups are better at it. Ladels are better are grabbing lots of liquidy food than spoons are too.

Accidentally biting down hard on a spoon is worse than biting down on a fork. We all do this from time to time. The fork's prongs have some flexibility that increases give whereas the spoon doesn't. This could potentially save you thousands at the dentist office. Or tens of thousands if you live in Beverly Hills, had no insurance, and needed several teeth fixed.

Forks are better for the environment and less expensive to manufacture since less material is used. Forks are also somewhat lighter so potentially it has a broader use among extremely unfit people.

You'll find forks in the road more than you'll find spoons in the road.
Forks are easier to clean since you don't need to bend your sponge around a slope like you do with a spoon. There's also no danger of having water splashing everywhere.
