It is not proper… Read More
That is a good way to get sick. Dogs have a lot of bacteria in their mouths, contrary to a common urban legend. They lick their anuses and genitals with their tongues, and many dogs will eat rotting animals and even feces! Do you want to share a fork with those germs?
They consider cutting your food after it has been cooked and prepared to be barbaric.
The spoon is usually for soup. When using the spoon start from the inside of the bowl closest to you and cup the soup outward then sip from the spoon (don't swoosh off the spoon as it's bad manners.) If no soup is being served then it's meant for dessert. If you are right handed then the knife goes into your right hand, fork in your left hand and use the knife for cutting and… Read More
I was indeed Saturday Night Live and I think it was in the 1980s. It was some kind of Candid Camera parody which took place in a diner. They showed the fork being left on the burner and an old lady eating cheesecake. I am thinking it would have been done during the Christopher Guest years as the show went from being live to having more filmed comedy. I only saw it once and I… Read More

A salad fork is used for salad. By uncouth people it is used for any thing. Some use it as a child's fork or any luncheon.
If the load is on a pallet, the forks should be spaced wide enough so that the pallet is stable and will not tilt to one side, so shedding the load. If the forks are set too narrow, the pallet could be unstable and the load may slide off. Not every fork truck driver would bother to adjust the fork spacing, and may try to get away with it. But they should at least take… Read More

Forks come in two sizes. The larger fork is the salad fork and the smaller fork is the one you eat your main entree with.

Some cultures eat with their hands, some with chop sticks. Where knife and fork are used, it could be said, simply: that is just how things are. But, there is also more to it than that-- As to cultural origins, eating with utensils is, no doubt, an exercise in class distinction. Using utensils separates the people with (at least a modicum of) social standing (class) from those without. Among those having higher levels of social… Read More

Knives, spoons, fingers, chopsticks
There are various styles, but the most widely accepted is used so the utensils appear to be non-threatening.Both the fork and the spoon are held horizontally, held between the first knuckle and middle finger, while the tip of the index finger and the thumb balance the handle. Hope this helps.
No, there are no recorded cases of someone being infected with HIV from an environmental surface. HIV is very fragile when outside of the host.

(In the US, the bite is pierced or "shoveled up" with the fork.) Except for very small children, a spoon… Read More
