A teaspoon is an item of cutlery, a small spoon. Teaspoonful, abbreviated tsp. is used as a cooking measure of volume. The size of teaspoons available ranges from about 2.5 to 7.3 ml. A teaspoon is a small spoon suitable for stirring and sipping the contents of a cup of tea or coffee, or adding a portion of loose sugar to it; these spoons have heads less oval in shape. Teaspoons are a common part of a place setting. Teaspoons with longer handles, such as iced tea spoons, are used for ice cream desserts or floats. Similar spoons include the tablespoon and the dessert spoon, the latter intermediate in size between a teaspoon and a tablespoon, used in eating dessert and sometimes soup or cereals. Much less common is the coffee spoon, a smaller version of the teaspoon, intended for use with the small type of coffee cup. Another teaspoon, called an orange spoon, tapers to a sharp point or teeth, is used to separate citrus fruits from their membranes. A bar spoon, equivalent to a teaspoon, is used in measuring ingredients for mixed drinks.

A container designed to hold extra teaspoons, called a spooner in a set with a covered sugar container, formed a part of Victorian table service. The teaspoon is first mentioned in an advertisement in a 1686 edition of the London Gazette. In some countries, a teaspoon is a cooking measure of volume widely used in cooking recipes and pharmaceutic medical prescriptions. In English it is abbreviated as tsp. or, less as t. ts. or tspn. The abbreviation is never capitalized because a capital letter is customarily reserved for the larger tablespoon The metric teaspoon as a unit of culinary measure is 5 mL, equal to 5 cm3; as a unit of culinary measure, one teaspoon in the United States is ​1⁄3 tablespoon, 4.92892159375 mL. For nutritional labeling and medicine in the US, the teaspoon is defined the same as a metric teaspoon—precisely 5 millilitres. For dry ingredients, if a recipe calls for a level teaspoon of a, this refers to an leveled filling of the spoon, producing the same volume as for liquids.

A rounded teaspoon is a larger but less precise measure, produced without leveling the ingredient off or heaping it as high as possible. A heaping or heaped teaspoon is a larger inexact measure consisting of the amount obtained by scooping the dry ingredient up without leveling it off. For some ingredients, e.g. flour, this quantity can vary considerably. As an unofficial but once used unit of Apothecaries' measure, the teaspoon is equal to 1 fluid dram and thus ​1⁄4 of a tablespoon or ​1⁄8 of a fluid ounce; the Apothecaries' teaspoon was formally known by abbreviated cochl. Min. to distinguish it from the tablespoon or cochleare majus. When tea-drinking was first introduced to England circa 1660, tea was rare and expensive, as a consequence of which teacups and teaspoons were smaller than today; this situation persisted until 1784, when the The Commutation Act reduced the tax on tea from 119% to 12.5%. As the price of tea declined, the size of teacups and teaspoons increased. By the 1850s, the teaspoon as a unit of culinary measure had increased to ​1⁄3 of a tablespoon, but the apothecary unit of measure remained the same.

The teaspoon under its Latin name, continued to be used in Apothecaries' measures for several more decades, with the original definition of one fluid dram.

Do whatever you want. I trust you." Povenmire praised this management style for letting him "have fun." Povenmire brought realism, material from his own experiences, to the visual direction of Family Guy. For this episode, Povenmire drew inspiration from his own childhood in the deep south for a sequence for a background scene where a "redneck" character nonchalantly kicks a corpse into the nearby river. There was a running gag of raccoons jumping out of things and scratching Peter in the face.

Atli the Slender

Atli the Slender was a ninth-century Norwegian jarl mentioned in several Old Norse sources, including Heimskringla and Egils saga. Atli was the son of a jarl of Gaular in Fjordane, his sister was the wife of King Harald Goldbeard of Sogn. He became friends with King Halfdan the Black of Vestfold and accompanied him on a number of his expeditions. In particular, Atli accompanied Halfdan when, following the death of Halfdan's father in law Harald Goldbeard and Halfdan's son Harald, the Vestfolder king led an expedition to take possession of Sogn as their heir. Halfdan made Atli jarl over all of Sogn. Atli continued to govern Sogn into the reign of Halfdan's son Harald Fairhair, he is mentioned in Egils saga in connection with the famous skald Olvir Hnufa, the eponymous Egill's great-uncle. At a thing in Gaular, Olvir fell in love with Atli's daughter; the jarl refused Olvir permission to marry the girl, but he was so smitten that he abandoned his Viking life to be near her. A skald of some talent, he composed a number of love poems for Solveig.

For reasons not revealed in the saga, but related to his courtship of Solveig, Olvir was attacked and nearly killed in his home by Solveig's brothers shortly after King Harald's conquest of Møre. Atli's sons, Hallstein and Herstein, were famous Norsemen who sailed with the foster brothers Hjörleifr Hróðmarsson and Ingólfr Arnarson, they fell out, over Ingolfur's sister Helga, who married Hjörleifur. In the ensuing blood feud two of Atli's sons were killed and their erstwhile allies fled Norway for Iceland, becoming the first permanent settlers there. After Harald Fairhair conquered Møre and Fjordane he assigned the governance of the former to Rognvald Eysteinsson and the latter to Håkon Grjotgardsson. Hákon and Atli soon came into conflict over Sogn and fought a battle at Fjalir in Stafaness Bay, in which Håkon was killed. Atli was wounded in the battle and taken to a nearby island, where he died. Eyvindr skáldaspillir wrote a verse about the battle, preserved in Heimskringla: Was Hakon, Hogni's daughter's-tree fey when to fight he went.
