Fallen from grace?

So the previously over-pretentious British middle class has went from using fish knives to no knives at all?

Re: Fallen from grace?

"The use of forks at table," observes the English writer Jasper Griffin, "seemed to our Tudor ancestors the height of affectation, so, the first to follow that Italian custom doubtless did so, in large part, to impress their neighbors with their sophistication. Evolution itself is a process of rising above one's origins and one's station."

With the decline of western civilization now on the final stretch, our successors will certainly have plenty of opportunity for evolution.

Next thing you know, folks will be calling me a snob for putting steak knives at the table.
