That kitchen drawer full of plastic takeout utensils is about to get some new company thanks to The Chork, a chopstick-fork combo making a major fast-food rollout on November 10.
They can be used as a fork, split vertically into chopsticks with cute little two-tine forks on the ends, or kept together as chopstick cheaters to reduce fumbling with two loose chopsticks. Some folks have reported that the cheater option may snap in two unexpectedly unless your pinching is of a gentle nature.
Essentially what’s we’re looking at here is two chopsticks that have been glued both to each other and to a fork in a wonderfully efficient design that looks a bit like a weapon from Mortal Kombat and sounds a bit like something a bored teenager might invent in the school holidays.
If you don't eat Panda Express but want to try them out, you can buy a pack.
Bonus video: a manufacturer's video so inept that it's kind of charming.

This is a lot of fun. Katrin and Janine, a couple of Swiss gals, recreated the sequences where Homer Simpson eats his way through New Orleans. It even impressed the animators of The Simpsons. Eric Koenig: “Hey! Just wanted you to know, we here at The Simpsons Animation Studio saw your video and were blow […]
Creating a fantasy world for a video or role-playing game is tough enough. In addition to all the game framework and functionality that goes into a build of any size, creators invariably sweat over the most minute details of every weapon, outfit, or other distinctive objects in their game. Even if your game is set […]
We get it. You don’t have to go to the office anymore. That’s no excuse for letting your grooming go positively feral. We’re not saying you need to be GQ cover model-ready every Monday through Friday. But at least put in some effort to keep yourself relatively trimmed, clean, and on point. Even if you […]
With everybody cooped up inside right now, it’s no surprise that many houses are starting to get a little bit…well, funky. Yeah…they smell. With everybody running around and sweating and working and cooking and everything else, odors get trapped inside your home. And don’t even get us started on what happens when litter boxes and […]
