For years, people have gathered in public places to violently debate which product should be considered superior—plate or spoon? Here's how they match up:
Durability: Though spoon advocates argue that a metal spoon won't shatter like a plate would after being thrown off a building, plate proponents often counter with, "What if the plate were made by gluing together a bunch of spoons?"
Ability to Be Used as a Utensil: Spoon is a clear winner in this category until you consider that a plate is just a giant spoon with no dangerously sharp handle.
Aesthetics: It's no coincidence that a plate kind of looks like a newborn baby's beautiful face without those beady, unnerving eyes.
Cool Factor: Kids are always saying, "There's nothing about a plate that deserves any hate."
Flammability: Both will likely start on fire when exposed to the sun.
Result: Though plate comes out ahead in nearly every category, the real winner here is civil discourse.
