    I bet this turn of phrase cinched the Illini beat for Mr. Klee:

    That's pretty f-ing funny.

    Dude, I'd hire anyone who could work 'spork' into a story.

    One of my favorite words of all time.

    Is KFC the only restaurant that still gives out the spork?

    Good luck to Paul in his new job.

    Except the sentence doesn't make any sense. A spork isn't good for anything.

    Or a spork is good for everything.

    I just blew your mind.

    Depth can be a like a spork, good for one thing (fresh legs), bad for another (egos).

    I was hoping whoever landed this job would do better than making a bunch of dumb jokes in print. Let's hope this spork example is just a fluke.
