Actually, spoon assault is not funny.
(What? Oh, yeah, it’s ha-ha funny; but it’s not, you know, ironic funny)

    Maybe the guy just played the spoon badly, which could annoy meth heads and thereby caused trouble.
    Give Constable Blackadder a valor medal for that!

    That looks like a drawer in my father’s kitchen.
    His knives must be broken, they haven’t killed anybody.

    I will say it’s good they confiscated those forks, cuz they’re done and they need a fork stuck in em.

    I had a brilliant moment of inspiration for a response here, but Veeshir stole my thunder while I was getting coffee.

    Oh sure, the spoon doesn’t LOOK dangerous – but did you check out the rust? That’s tetanus just waiting to happen.

    These guys had an empire “Upon which the sun never set”, right??

    I’m starting to think Monty Python produced training films.

    Well, the Brits have always had a reputation for lousy cuisine (hence the adoption of the Fwench word for it), so I guess the impossibility of cooking shows in England isn’t really such a loss, is it?

    (Or does the BBC get to use the David Gregory exemption?…)

    I lost my sterling silver assault gravy ladle in a tragic boating accident.
