A big round cheese, such as Stilton, which is why so many people guessed "Stilton spoon", right? How long is the spoon? I think it would be a fantastic extension of the Kovels tradition of reader education if "Whatsitwednesd ay" would include a little background info in the answers, such as the dimensions of the object, since they aren't revealed beforehand, and a bit of history about it. Thanks very much for considering the idea.

To make this even more interesting you should offer a prize (one of your books or CDs) to the first person with the correct answer.

Thank you for guessing! It's a cheese scoop, to take a piece out of a big round cheese.

Bone marrow spoons are usually longer, so I think this is a Stilton spoon.
