McDonald's wants us to eat our burgers with a fork made of fries

What's This?

For those who can't go one minute without having salty fried goodness in your mouth, McDonald's has created a fork with prongs made of fries.

We know what you must be thinking: "Is this really necessary?" No, it's not. You may also be wondering, "Does this actually work?" No, it doesn't.

McDonald's will be giving out a limited quantity of "frorks" as part of the introduction of its new Signature Crafted Recipe menu. The sandwiches on the new menu are prone to dropping toppings, which is why McDonald's created this weird way of scooping up the sauce or guacamole that may fall while you are eating.

Nothing like cleaning up a mess you made with fried grease.

While we do not particularly like this idea, we do like two things about this video McDonald's made to announce the idea.

First, McDonald's itself acknowledges that this frork contraption is "solving a problem" that is not really a problem. Nobody is fretting about using your fingers to pick up a fry to scoop up some leftover sauce.

Secondly — and this is our favorite — the frork doesn't even work in the video. The fries literally just push the sauce around so that it's more spread out and even more difficult to save.

The lesson we've learned here is to not send an imaginary utensil to do a job perfectly suitable for our fingers.
