spork

noun; blending
a piece of silverware, usually plastic, was the capacity of being used as both a fork and a spoon context: Originally used during lunch in high school to describe the plastic silverware we started receiving with our meals instead of traditional spoons and forks. Reason used: Once an item is created, it must be given a name, and since this piece of silverware was created by combining a spoon and a fork, naturally its name must be a combination of spoon and fork as well. Example sentence: By giving out plastic sporks instead of spoons and forks, the volume of trash coming out of high schools all across the country has dropped significantly.
