The act of placing many forks, tine side up in a lawn.

1) A deliberate expression of anger or hatred to another specifically to indicate the person has a forked tongue (is a liar) and cannot be trusted. Color of forks used is significant. Black and red exhibit negative feelings. i.e.: Black=mal-intentioned threat, bodily harm or misfortune. Red=anger.

2) When innocuous or in good spirit, this prank typically involves white plastic institutional forks or may use colors representing a school or fraternal organization.
1) The forking took place during the night when they placed black forks in the yard to symbolize the fact that this person had lied in court for personal gain at the expense of another.

2) Students strategically placed close to 35,000 plastic forks into the lawn of their school grounds on June 6, 2004. To pull off a forking of this magnitude, it took a full school year of planning and 50 participants. The legendary senior prank landed them on MTV.

it's just like spooning, except the two people involved both have spiky hair
When Jamie Lee Curtis and former MTV veejay Simon Rex were dating, some nights they would go out on the town, other nights they'd just curl up in front of the tv for a tender night of forking.

Where a couple of people - best with more than 3 - throw a fork around, trying to catch it whilst avoiding it becoming embeded in a part of their body.
Me and my friends invented it in school when we found a spoon and started throwing it up in the air. We then lost it and found a fork instead. This is more dangerous and much more fun!
