The prince of utensils.
Fork: A tool with a handle with several narrow tines (usually two, three or four) on one end. Historically the fork as an eating utensil has been more prevalent in the West, and, in the days before the perfection of the revolver, was also the sidearm of choice among knowledgeable cowboys.
Fork: Cutlery used for serving and eating food.
Fork: Something shaped like a fork: "forked fingers".
Fork: A thing you find in some roads. If so, take it.
Fork: An implement to eat with. Some are metal, some are plastic, or even wood (which makes them easier to burn). In a pinch you can use the tines of a fork to comb your hair, and if bored you can poke the cat with it (if you also have plenty of bandages).
