Ever since Liam Payne and his longtime girlfriend, Danielle Peazer, went their separate ways, the One Direction cutie has been exploring, well, lots of new directions. After the breakup, he chopped off his floppy popstar hair into a prim buzz cut; he inked up a few times at tattoo parlors; and he’s even been recently connected to a few lovely ladies, most notably Leona Lewis. But aside from any rumored crush on the fellow X Factor songstress, Payne apparently has a new obsessionÂ—and he recently tweeted all about it.
The object of Payne’s newfound affection? A spork. He took to Twitter to express his feelings, posting, “What the …… is THISSSSS,” alongside a photo of the utensil in question; one that happens to be great for stoup (stew plus soup) usage. While the spoon-fork hybrid obviously captured Payne’s attention, it’s not clear whether the rest of the 1D boys, including Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik, were equally flabbergasted by the fusion phenomenon. They may not be so easily amused!
Liam Payne even later tweeted, “I cannot get that spoon fork out of my mind.” Sugarscape called it his “ultimate nightmare,” but the spork seems to be more of a silly fascination for Payne than anything else. It seems even a 1D boy can learn something new every day; perhaps they don’t have too many of those silverware items across the pond. Or maybe he’s just trying to divert attention away from a potential future Liamona sensation with Ms. Lewis. Regardless, it sounds like just another day in the random world of One Direction. Now, it’s time for them to order some stoup and put that spork to good use.
