Why hasn’t anyone thought of this before?

In a world of innovative utensil hybrids, the spork has always been the undisputed king. But thanks to some clever plastic manipulation, the chork is our new favorite way to eat.

First spotted at Panda Express, the chork is a hybrid with chopsticks on one end and a four-pronged fork on the other. Could this totally revolutionize the way we slurp lo mein? Or will we end up with a fork-stab to the palm?

Lisa Jennings, the West Coast bureau chief for Nation's Restaurant News, first noticed the chork with her  Panda Express meal.

According to the website, the chork is actually three utensils in one:  In addition to the fork and regular chopsticks, itcan also be used as a “cheater.” You can use the chopsticks while they’re joined together for veritable training wheels on your way to proper chopstick usage. It’s the Swiss Army knife of fast-casual cutlery.

Panda Express has not yet announced their commitment to the chork, but we assume they’ll be singing its praises very soon.
