One of our readers (ok, it was actually my Sister-in-Law) sent us this link from the folks over at Reddit in the mildlyinteresting sub-reddit.
Everyone in the discussion seems to be losing their mind about the Sesame Street Cutlery shown above. The Spoon Big Bird, Fork Bert and Knife Ernie are a good looking set of flatware to say the least.
We’ve looked everywhere and are unable to source them for sale unless you want a second hand set from e-bay. I doubt they are dishwasher safe and to be completely honest they are probably made from old school pewter with lead or some other junk metal. Hopefully not. But it they do it would explain the antics over at Reddit.
The discussion about this cutlery we linked to above at Reddit went so far off the rails that this happened:
It seems if you start to talk about treasured childhood icons people really start to lose their minds.
So, what can I learn from this about cutlery you ask? Well, we did learn that children really get possessive about things like the flatware they eat with. To that point that they would refuse to eat anything at all without their magical Big Bird Spoon. So firstly make sure to buy three sets of said magic cutlery when they show this tendency. And second make sure to carry a set in your bag when you are out and about eating at a restaurant or as a guest.
