forker facts

Fangs = Fork
Stephanie Meyer's Twilight novels are based in Forks (the place, not Forker's perfectly balanced marvels). Fork prongs / vampire fangs... Makes sense.
Meyer had actually never visited the town, but she wanted an suitably gloomy setting for her novels and found out that the Olympic Peninsula is the most rainy location in America. The only town of any size on that coastline? Forks.
Chicken ≠ Fork
In Gainesville, known as the Chicken Capital of the World, it is illegal to eat chicken with a fork.
The ordinance was passed in 1961 and there’s even a statue in the middle of the town with a chicken watching over passers-by. If they could experience a Forker fork, of course, they might change their minds.
Scandalous Forks
Forks haven't always been popular. They were viewed as scandalous in 11th century Venice.
Later, they were treated with such suspicion in England that in 1633 Charles I felt the need to insist that “It is decent to use a fork.” (Obviously, if Forker's perfect fork had been an option then, everyone would have seen the light much earlier.)
“Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Do not bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.”
— William Forkner
