Knife Crime in USA

Whilst I agree with President Trump that knife crime in London is a problem, his statement that the floors of the hospitals are flooded with blood is blatant fake news.

His proposed solution of arming all citizens with guns, possibly assault rifles, is even more ludicrous, but it is no more than we have come to expect from the Chief Tweeter.

However, I have observed that knife crime in the USA is rife.

I have been shocked by the sight of Americans using their fish knives to spread butter on their rolls. I have observed diners using their steak knives to portion their gateaux. Even worse, I have seen our trans-Atlantic cousins cutting their meat into small pieces which they scoop up with a mouthful of vegetables on a salad fork before shovelling them into their mouths.

Fortunately, as you’d expect, all efforts to carve a filet mignon with a butter knife met with failure.

One thing is certain, knife crime in USA is epidemic.

    Sadly many people do not know how to use the cutlery on a full table setting.

  2. I find that starting from the outside and working in and keeping my tongue firmly in my cheek usually works!
