Day 266 – The Herbert Hoover Spoon

We took a bit of a break to celebrate the end of summer, but we’re back, with quite possibly the weirdest amalgam of spoon features I’ve ever seen. 

At the top of the spoon there’s a portrait of our 31st President, Herbert Hoover, glaring down at me. Just below the portait is a bright, cheery blue charm in the shape of Iowa, where Hoover was born, with the state flower and bird (the prairie rose and the American Goldfinch). The bowl of the spoon is engraved with a few trees, a pig, and Iowa’s motto: Tall Corn State. 

The contrast of the Great Depression-era portait and the Sanrio-like charm gives this spoon an “F” for design, but an “A+” for hilarity.
