Man Stabs Fellow Diner In Row Over Table Settings
IN a scene that could be from Downton Abbey After Dark, Edward William Bright of the Richland County, South Carolina Bright, and another man are debating the crockery.
Which should they use at dinner?
Bright picks up a steak knife (third from the right) and stabs the other man several times in the upper body. The other man doesn’t die, which suggests the blade is not as well cared for as it might have been. A good steak knife should be as sharp and reliable as the Earl of Grantham.
At which point Carson arrives to tell us that Mr Bright should have used the butter spreader, then moved onto the luncheon knife before peeling the other man with a fruit knife. It being the done thing.
