When I was a student, a flat mate and I used to juggle (and try to pass)
various kitchen utensils. Wooden spoons, ladles (a bit awkward), egg whisks,
fish-slices and rolls of cling-film were pressed into service. We also had
a go using bread-knives, but our girl friends screamed and put a stop to
that. Some sort of culinary routine is probably possible; an egg, a frying
pan and something else, finishing with the egg in the pan. Probably been
done before, for that matter.
Loo brushes (unused) are good for the comedy effect, and are less stress
on the hands. Or so I'm told.
