    A police force in the UK has been ridiculed for bragging about fighting knife crime by confiscating a spoon.

    Regents Park Police said that a local charity shop had handed over a collection of potentially dangerous weapons to prevent criminals buying them.

    “Yesterday we conducted weapons sweeps, dealt with a person injured from a van reversing on them, reported a burglary and collected all these from @scope charity shop who diligently didn’t want them to get into the wrong hands & disposed of correctly & safely,” said the police force in a tweet.

    Good thing it wasn't a tactical spork, they'd have called out a SWAT team!

    If you find a fork in the road... take it.

    Not sure what to do with a spoon though.

    For f***'s sake!! At this point I think they are officially the biggest pussies on the planet. Seriously, the French just have to be tougher than them now. Hell Gandhi was more intimidating than their entire country.

    I see what the problem is now - it was a rusty spoon. Somebody could have gotten some nasty tetanus from that

    1) Spoon looks like tarnished silver.
    2) There's enough knife material there for Boris to make several AK47 receivers.

    Looks like the inevitable political backlash is starting in UK and EU. Conservative nationalists win three major elections in UK, Italy, and France. More Trump allies.....

    Farage Declares 'History Has Been Made' After Brexit Party Victory

    With almost all regions counted, the Brexit Party is in the clear lead after winning around one-third of the vote and projected to have gained 29 seats. In a distant second, the pro-Remain Liberal Democrats won 15 seats, while the new Change UK (CUK), established solely to stop Brexit, failed to gain a single seat.

    Never before in British politics has a party just 6 weeks old won a national election,” Mr Farage posted to Twitter Monday morning.

    There's a knife sharpening steel in there, too, that you could impale someone with.

    I applaud their actions.

    Do you know the stats on the number of people that are burned by hot soup every year?

    I mean, yeah, the spoon...

    But the rest of that shit looks like kitchen knives to me. How the f*** do they cut their steaks?

    If you shoot a pistol match at Hopkinton, look carefully at the road ad you walk by Pistol bay #2. There is indeed a fork in the road. I will take a photo of it the next time I am there.
