McDonald's new 'frork' is an amazingly new 'uselessly useful' utensil

If you thought the "spork" was a culinary marvel, McDonald's new "frork" will change your life.

As part of their new Signature Crafted Recipe Sandwiches campaign, McDonald's has invented the "frork." It's a fork with french fries as prongs.

It a "uselessly useful" utensil designed to pick up toppings that drop from your sandwich. They even put together an infomercial that stars Anthony Sullivan. If this seems like a joke, it's not. You can actually snag one of these frorks on May 5 at participating restaurants when you purchase a Signature Crafted recipe sandwich.

The concept has already been deemed "ludicrous" and "infuriatingly stupid" by some.

If you're on board, though, you can call 1-844-McD-FRORK. The first 500 callers get a "frork" and the first 5,000 callers get a coupon for a Signature Crafted Recipe Sandwich.
