I suspect that "fish slice" is derived from the way a slotted spatula slightly resembles a slice of, say, salmon. You know... The way the musculature in sliced fish forms positive and negative visual spaces... Kinda like the way we Yanks call a large pistol a "hog leg".

Cooked fish doesn't take much slicing.
I have in mind a whole salmon, about 2ft long, lovingly arranged as the centrepiece of a beautifully laid table, accompanied by a delicate silver fish slice.

Now, to cook that salmon one needs a fish kettle....

that's a pretty kettle of fish

Let's sing an ode to the spatula
Our fingers are saved from the blender

I called the guy who asked me the question and suggested that he contact the SpatulA Dysfunction Support Approval Committee (SADSAC). According to their website, SADSAC maintains a list of approved, Board-certified spatula dysfunction specialists and can even arrange (in extreme cases) for permanent "hospitalization." I also suggested that might contact Amos, who is willing to do disgusting, filthy, unspeakable things because he uses a Mac.

Though the cheese slicer might demand to be considered a spatula, it's a fraud. It's really a knife--as in a very exaggerated potato peeler that is really wide on one side of the blade. Tell it firmly to get back in the drawer. Try again if we drift into sharp implements.

I have used one of those Korean hand plows before and it most definitely is not a spatula. A regular garden spade could be considered a spatula especially since, as previously noted, "spade" and "spatula" are derived from the same word. But the Korean hand plow is more like a cross between a pickaxe and a mason's trowel with a cramp.

I want to hear more about how Amos convinced his family that he should retire the cat litter scoop implement and then use it for cooking. In most typical households, once something has been stored "under the sink," as it were (like the old toothbrushes that get used for scrubbing grout or polishing silver, or much groadier work), it doesn't get a second shot at the countertop.

A "spork" is the plastic spoon with tiny tines that you get at fast food places too cheap to invest in real plastic spoons and real plastic forks.

Does the "grain shovel" I have count as a spatula? Or my snow shovel, which is flat? How about my paint scrapers?

If you count this sort of thing I have lots and lots more -- and they're mine! Mine!

SRS - You'd like to hear Amos' story? The entire thing from date of birth? Or did you have something a little more specific in mind?

And as for what brucie meant by "huh", well, what does Brucie usually mean by "huh"? Probably something different from what he means when he says "great flaming sardines sauted in yak fat", but not necessarilly so. You can never be 100% sure with that boy.

A spork is often the little utensil from the fast food restaurant that serves as a fork or spoon, but can you think of a better name for the larger pasta implement, that is shaped like the bowl of a spoon with tines around the edge?

OK, I finally got around to taking inventory.

Of the pancake turner variety: 3 nylon, 2 stove-sized metal and one BBQ-metal.

Of the scraper variety: 5 rubber with plastic handles, 3 silicone with metal handles

Miscellaneous: 1 fish slice, 2 spoonulas (or is that spoonulae?)

And here's my favorite way to prepare salmon.

A cheap all-metal one makes a dandy over-the-door hook. Bend the spatula section to go over the door, then bend the tip of the handle end up as the hook. The spatula end does a good job of grabbing the surface it's hung over.

So yes, my spatula is hung over.

Yup--that's what I was going to guess. Cooked elsewhere, with smoke. I use a Little Chief (Luhr-Jensen) top-loader. And if I remember, I spread a little oil on the racks so my spatula doesn't break up the fish that would otherwise stick when I try to remove it after smoking.

No spatula is required for pancakes, only skill.
After initial confusion I have 2 spatulas, one of flexible metal, an heirloom from my mother and one of wood for the mixing of things. I also have 2 fishslices which are rarely used for fish as I like to grill fish. I aslo have one spade, one shovel, and a dust pan.
My cat is too civilised to need a poop scoop and although I possess a pasta poop scoop I have yet to find any pasta poop.
I nearly forgot I have a plastic ruler which makes an excellent emergency mixing spatula.
Emergency spatulas are something everyone should have knowledge of. Your omlette could be in severe danger otherwise.( This is not a threat merely advisory)
