Just How Idiotic Is The General Population?

Forkgate - I came across this news story, just by accident… and couldn't believe that it was termed as a 'scandal' [Link].



The mayor, on a pilgrimage Friday to Goodfellas, the venerable Staten Island pizzeria, smiled, nodded at his slice, and then proceeded to do the unthinkable: eat it with a knife and fork.

“Disaster,” declared a writer at New York magazine, citing the longstanding city protocol of devouring pizza, no matter how greasy, with hands only.

One website called it de Blasio’s first mistake as mayor.

Confronted by reporters about his conspicuous use of utensils, de Blasio argued that he was simply being authentic to his Italian roots. “In my ancestral homeland, it’s more typical to eat with a fork and knife,” said de Blasio, whose mother was Italian.

Pressed on why a mayor who prides himself on populism would opt for a such a technique, longtime friend Charles Greinsky shrugged.



Now… do we blame the media or the general population?

So, how stupid are you? You are going to make an issue about someone using a fork and knife (*rolls eyes)? Damn… just about ANYTHING makes the news these days.
