Ice cream from the fridge is frozen solid. Getting scoops from that with a spoon is hard work. And no, I am not letting it stand to drop in temperature — who has time for that?
Use a fork. Poke at it, get in there, and get chunks into a bowl. Then continue eating it with that fork.
The job of eating ice-cream is different from the job of dishing it.
It is the right tool for this specific job.
