Me, still glaring at my significant other because he continues to eat in a manner fit for barnyard animals in front of the kids, "Why can't you use a fork?"

My husband answers with a patently false misunderstood look on his face, "I already put it in the sink."

Me, getting really exasperated with his determination to look confused about WHY we, as adults, should not be setting such an example, "Why did you decide to eat it with your fingers instead of with a clean fork?"

My husband, "Because bobbing for meat never caught on?"
