When you see people eating clumps of food utilizing sharpened sticks as levers, you may think to yourself, “that is probably the dumbest way imaginable to eat food,” but you are wrong, because Americans have actually taken superior European food consumption tools and found the least efficient way possible to use them, giving them the honors of dumbest eating technique in the world.

Americans decided long ago, that a fork and a knife should both be held in the right hand.

Since this is impractical at best, you are granted to see them for a brief period of time to shift the fork from their right hand to their left to aid in cutting food into bits.

Unfortunately, the laws of thermodynamics make the food cold if you cut it into little bits all at once, so Americans have to awkwardly shift the fork to the left hand, then pick up the knife with the right hand, cut two bites, put down the knife with the right hand, pass the fork back to the right hand, and then resume taking bites.

Since this is such a nuisance, all Americans try their best to cut everything they can with the side of their fork, and only giving in and beginning their ***** fork-knife hand jive as a last resort.
