Introduction: How to Use a Fork

Picture of How to Use a Fork

This instructable is for those who don't know how to properly use a fork.
A fork is a tool with a lot of possible uses:
*Eating
*Killing
*opening bottles of beer
*science projects
*decoration
...

Step 1: Eating

Picture of Eating

First of is eating.
Most people are familiar with using a fork to eat meat.
For those who aren't:
Firstly you need some meat (doesn't really matter what it is)
Now place the food in front of you on a hard surface (table)
Push the fork into the piece of meat, this needs a bit of
muscle power, but shouldn't be a problem for most people.
When the fork is in the meat, you just bring the meat to your
mouth and the eating can begin!

There is almost nothing that can't be eaten using a fork, so giving a detailed instruction for everything would take me a bit to far.

Step 2: How to Kill Using a Fork

A not as common, but still frequently usage of a fork is to kill somebody.
Using a fork to kill someone IS NOT ALLOWED, it mostly involves having (bad) luck (depends on point of view) and using enough force to thrive the fork deep enough into the flesh of the victim.

A good place to put the fork is in the throat, under the clavicle, in a vital organ...

(I suggest you don't try this at home)
Matter of fact I beg you to never kill anyone.
(this is for "enterainment use only)

Step 3: Opening Bottles of Beer

Who hasn't been in the situation where you wanted to open a bottle, but the only thing you had was a fork?
That shall never be a problem anymore!
Opening a bottle with a fork is easy!
*Take the bottle and the fork.
*Hold the bottle firmly between your legs or (for those who
are more experienced) hold it in your hand.
*Bring the not pointy side of the fork to the head of the
bottle, put the end under the lid.
*Put one hand round the lid and fork.
*Use your other hand to push the fork down, this way you used
a leverage system to pop the lid off the bottle.

Always drink Belgian beer, because this is the best beer in the world and all the money goes to Belgium!!!

Step 4: Science Projects and Decoration

The use of a fork in science and art is widely spread over the globe.
The fork is loved because of its nice design, originality and cheapness.

Step 5: Legal Stuff

Forks aren't illegal in any country (i know of).
Killing is illegal in all countries! So don't do it!

you might want to be more specific. people could just stab the meat with the fork, then pick the meat up with their hands, completely defeating the purpose, and maybe choking on a fork

What vital organs are in the throat?

mverdo (author)Weissensteinburg2008-02-28

There are none in the throat... it is in the throat OR under the clavicle OR in any vital organ. sorry if it was/is a bit confusing

syphek (author)mverdo2009-07-02

what about your trachea? its not really an organ, but its kinda vital to breathing... plus people make a cool whitle-y sound when you stab them there

Thank you for the great Instructable: Learning to use a fork came just in time before I lost the other eye!

The mother in law acted all shocked when I used a salad fork to eat steak and got all preachy about PROPER uses for silverware. So i told her you only need three things to eat with, a spoon for scooping, a fork for stabbing, and a knife for cutting. All the rest of that is pure crap. She acted like i was Conan the Barbarian at a Victorian tea party, I really enjoyed pissing her off by the way.

Ungh? What is salad?

Very interesting. I wasn't crazy about the killing thing though. It actually kinda creeps me out that you know how to kill with a fork. Remind me to not invite you to dinner parties.

"fork after killing"

I see the traditional Hollywood effect is still alive. =)

mverdo (author)ll.132008-02-28

there isn't anything more Hollywood than ketchup!

They used chocolate syrup in black and white movies, like the shower scene in that one movie that I can't think of... 10 points to whoever guesses it right.

i'm having trouble with step 1 and 2, can you guys help me?

awkrin (author)2008-05-31

lol cool instructable. but I thought u would have actually showed us how to hold/move the fork, since some people don't know how to do that..

incorrigible packrat (author)2008-02-27

What! No discussion of proper fork-holding technique? I was looking forward to endless commentary debates on the relative merits of the end of the fork resting on top of the palm (civilized) technique, versus the end of the fork gripped in the palm (barbarian) method...

I was going to do that in the sequel

Sorry for the spoiler. Maybe you could discuss sporks, as well, Or, maybe, you view the spork as a travesty to the spirit of good forking.

that could work, or no, I am sure that WILL work!

awoodcarver (author)2008-02-27

A fork makes a good belt buckle also.....got to stop using it for that and get rid of my spoon and use the fork for what it was intended for holding my coat on the wall ......... I like the coat rack ....what one is the salad fork?

aliceownsj00 (author)2008-02-27

I feel like a veil has been lifted from my eyes. thanks you kind instructor!

Brennn10 (author)2008-02-27

GorillazMiko (author)2008-02-27

Hahaha, cool kind of, but funny. :-) And the last picture... looks cool. Maybe try doing that...
