These are very similar to spatulas. I don’t like calling them that though. I just don’t like the word “spat” being used when it comes to food. Flatula would be better. Or possibly the Norwegian “StekeSpade”.

The only aliens that I have thought much about are Daleks. A Dalek would say: “I wish I had hands. I like spoons. I don’t like humans. Exterminate.” Sorry, but they do tend to go off on one at any opportunity. 

I have given this considerable thought and I am thinking that Daleks would have to feed each other because they don’t have elbows. Probably through the grill.
