>>The Century dictionary of 1900 adds that it is because spoons were used to feed infants that they became associated with foolishness and simpletons.

Before reading about love spoons, I thought "spooning" referred to the way spoons are laid together in a drawer, fitting closely, concavity to concavity. Therefore "spooning" was to cuddle.
