Shocking Peas

A recent Daily Mail article about a woman who is suing her lawyer for failing to explain to her that "finalising her divorce would terminate her marriage" contains another little nugget of weirdness toward the end:

Just one week after getting married, a woman in Kuwait has filed for divorce after discovering her husband prefers to use bread, rather than a fork, to eat peas. Traumatised by the 'shocking sight', she said she could no longer live with him, owing to his lack of etiquette.

At least he doesn't use his fingers. That would be really barbaric.

Reminded me of the kids poem, I eat my peas with honey, I've done so all my life. It makes my peas taste funny. But it keeps them on my knife! :lol: :coolsmile:

I eat my peas with bread.
I've done so all my life.
My Bride said, "That's disgusting".
Now, She won't be my Wife! :lol: :coolsmile:

Me, too. I believe that poem was written by Spike Milligan.

If he was using his left hand for the bread, that may really be a deal-breaker.

Left hand?! Urk!

I want whirled peas. Doesn't everyone?

The thing that disturbs me is they don't bring up that if you are Catholic or Roman Catholic (which I think she is, according to the info I've seen), divorcees are not allowed to have Communion/Eucharist. Sad fact... social issue...

She should be grateful. He could've used the fork to mash the peas. That would really mark him out as a cad.

Richard, your comment reminded me of this ODE TO A PEA!
Thanks! I hadn't thought of that in a while! :lol: :coolsmile:
