Last Friday, prior to President Obama’s speech at the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials in Florida, the Secret Service confiscated all of the forks from the tables. (via Politico)
“As you know, we’re having another speaker and there is some Secret Service involved. So there’s a reason why there’s no knives at your table and the forks will be collected. … And I’m not joking,” Regalado told the audience in a ballroom at Disney’s Contemporary Resort at Walt Disney World. “So, like the good Hispanic mother I’m here to tell you to please, eat your lunch.”
Needless to say, the news has sparked an unusual amount of fork jokes on Twitter.
