|Giant Fork Finally Recovered in
In a bit of happy news today, the Grand Forks Herald reports that one of the North Dakota town's giant forks has been found and bolted back to the ground to prevent any further wanderings on the part of the wayward utensil.
The six foot fork is part of the town's prized collection of some fifty-one oversized forks which adorn city sidewalks and local businesses.
The fork was found in the suburban kitchen of Nellie Delboccio who tripped over it while making a late night trip to the refrigerator to get a swig of Dr. Pepper.
"You'd think I would have noticed a fork that size, but I didn't," said Delboccio. "I'm just glad I caught my balance. If I'd fallen on one of those giant tines, my ass would be sore for a week."
