                 L1010478.JPG (118679 bytes)   Andy Anderson, a.k.a. Funzo the Funnyman, spoofed Matt Adam's crafting of utensils by describing how this spoon was crafted.  It is simple.  Use a large Forstner bit with an M-80 firecracker on its tip.  The wood used is "Tramlaw Anihc" which, when read backwards, spells a well known large-box retail outlet priced at $3.99 plus tax.
