Re: Just a taste spoon; add 1 tease spoon

“Tastespoon” seems a bit distant, phonetically. But it’s always dangerous to circumscribe inventivity.

Went looking for some other examples of “tastespoon” and discovered something new. People call those little wooden spoons that vendors give out with samples of edibles “tastespoons.”

Hatching new language, one eggcorn at a time.
