How to Hang a Spoon

Evidently hanging a spoon off your face is an actual “thing,” or at least it was back in the 1980s. Obviously, this is straight out of the humor section. Funny is in the eye of the beholder. It is still very dated, but if your community loves spoons or thinks this is hilarious, by all means keep it! Unfortunately, for those worried about currency issues, I don’t think there are any later editions.

  1. The only place I remember hearing about spoon hanging was the Beverly Sills episode of The Muppet Show.

  2. I can’t believe there’s enough information about this topic to make an entire book.

  3. I remember my brother and I goofing around and trying to hang spoons off our noses as kids. They seem to stay on my own nose very well, but that’s just because it’s too small. They hang much better on my brother’s big honker of a nose, heh heh.

  4. My dad’s med school roommate taught me how to hang a spoon on my nose in the early 2000’s. It’s come up a couple of times since then.

  5. This was a favorite trick of the vice president at a software company I worked at in the 1980s. We pretty much thought it was dumb.
