in reply to fork usage

You may wish to consider whether the fork in question is is any good. I have heard it said that there is nothing like a good fork. Though it is also said that even a mediocre fork is better than none at all. Bad forks, on the other hand, can generate a lot of mess and possibly dry cleaning. Does this help at all ?

Furthermore, never forget: "there is no spoon". So keep a close eye on your fork, lest some bugger pinches that as well.

Beyond those general observations, it is hard to offer much more useful advice in the absence of any context. Perhaps a more specific question will yield more immediately useful information...
