It was the mid of 1880s. Horatio Spatula had just immigrated to the United States. It was a time when people flipped eggs and frosted cakes with the help of just household stuff. A day tested Horatio’s patience, when he used the handle of a broom to flip his ‘easy over’ eggs. He knew that there ought to be a much better way when his frustration had crossed the limits. His wife agreed and passed on a coal scuttle to him. Well, this idea actually worked fine but when he tried frosting a cake using the same, he started knocking things off the counter. So make it work in a much enhanced and better way, he chopped it in half. Later he trimmed down the size even more, which looked a lot like today’s spatula.
Since Horatio was an enterprising person, he took it to a notable, Eli Walton, in order to market it. But how much ever Horatio tried convincing him, he did not agree to the idea of marketing the spatula. Later, Horatio even approached Thomas Edison and George Eastman, only to receive the same answer. But this did not disappoint Horatio. Instead he went from town to town, sermonizing on the spatula’s gospel, and as he did so, a spatula was left behind as gift. Well, soon word spread. The awesome innovative tool that can be used to flip eggs and frost cakes – the Spatula! Ultimately, Horatio Spatula abridged what ‘a kitchen without its spatula is like.’ He said, “a day without doughnuts is like a day without pork rinds.”
