    Don’t knock it. It works for the dog.

    When you come to a fork, take it.

    Only very wealthy people used all those different utensils (and probably even then only at very formal occasions.) The other 99% made do for a long time with just their fingers, then knives, spoons and forks were eventually adopted for nearly everyone. So Toby is wrong about which direction how the curve is going for people in his family income bracket.

    OldestandWisest, as usual, grasped the whole of the concept today. Anyone who feels the gag got past you a bit could read Bill Bryson’s ‘At Home’ or any number of other nostalgia-minded historically-themed books about home life. Chances are, everyone got the de-evolution of utensils idea, but read the book anyhow. It’s fun.

    Dog manners? More like a politician with both hooves in the public trough.

    If you don’t want to eat with your fingers, fork it.

    I can still remember being an amoeba, naturally injesting microorganisms from the seawater.


    It’s really amazing when you think about how we’ve moved on.

    When you are dictator of the world, you can go ahead and ban all eating utensils. Until then…… you’re stuck doing things mom’s way.

    So how would we eat HOT food without burning our fingers?

    My brother took his kids to Outback Steak House. His son lifted one of those horrific looking steak knives they provide you with and said, “Now, who would give a thing like this to a kid?” Who indeed?
