PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

VerbEdit

spork (third-person singular simple present sporks, present participle sporking, simple past and past participle sporked)

  1. (transitive) To move or impale (food etc.) with a spork.
    • 2002, Olivia Goldsmith, Pen pals
      She was sporking up her food with the kind of relish Jennifer had rarely seen at three star restaurants.
    • 2007 July 29, Erin McKean, “Corpus”, in New York Times[1]:
      Now, obviously, most of this sporking is facetious, done purely for humorous intent (none of the eyeballs being sporked were in news reports), but the phenomenon of the weaponized spork is one that passed lexicographers and language researchers by until we saw the corpus evidence.
