When a Secret Service agent handed him a spork, one of those ubiquitous plastic utensils usually found littering the sidewalks of Washington, DC., the President declared nostalgically to no one in particular, "Gosh ... this looks just like that little thingie my preschool teacher used to hold over one eye during my vision tests!"
As he was about consume a hastily purchased pint of chile in the back of his limousine, Mr. Bush attempted an unartful re-enactment from that kinder, gentler time in his life. Although the spork did get stuck in his left eye, no one else was injured.
At the present time, not a lot is known about the long lasting effects of spork tine impalement in the human eye.
