An Unanswered Letter to Original Pasta Fork

Dear Original Pasta Fork,

I’m mesmerized by the videos of this fork in action! Personally, I think the idea is a bit silly, but then so are most good ideas. A fork that spins by itself seems to cater to the lazy or the inept. I mean how hard is it to spin a fork? Thing is though there are tons of people that can’t seem to master this simple skill.

Take my friend (please! Ha ha!) Anthony Imperioli. As you can see by the number of vowels in this man’s name he’s Italian, but all the same he can’t wrap pasta around a simple fork without someone helping him. As you probably know by now I have placed an order for a set of these forks (order number 341!) and had them shipped directly to my Canadian friend. I thought of having them sent to me first and keeping one, so that I could imagine us eating pasta at the same time, but then I remembered I do not have difficulty eating with a regular fork. (Besides, I doubt I’d be able to ship anything through customs after the my previous gift!)

It is my hope that Anthony will be able to keep himself fed (all on his own), will no longer be dependent on the kindness of others to get food into his mouth, and will stop being laughed at by the waitstaff at Olive Garden once he receives his Original Pasta Fork!

A lot of people have no idea what goes into creating a website like Jackass Letters. I write several letters for each one that gets answered. This is one of those unanswered letters. Most of these I post over to the Jackass Letters Facebook page.

Because of the YouTube response to this fork I felt I needed to post this letter here. Watch the fork in action:

Davie is such a fucking liar. He didn’t buy that fork off the internet. It was a present from me to Anthony Imperioli. Normally I get about one letter in four answered. With the Anthony letters about half get replies. I am writing a book about Anthony. You’ll have to keep tuning in for more information.

And be sure to watch the outtakes:

I think they were having audio problems, so turn up your speakers!

You can watch the original commercial for the fork:

Lastly, I am saddened by the fact that this letter did not elicit a response. It’s bad customer service to ignore one of your customers. Just my opinion, but when someone references an order number in a letter, you might want to give it some attention, if you want repeat business.

I love you all.
