Life is already complicated enough. Why do we feel the need to add more complexity to a primal activity like eating? We were meant to eat with our hands.
Just because we have silverware at Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, doesn’t mean we don’t think it’s overrated. This is mainly because we’re so conditioned to using it that we can’t not have it available (plus, salads are admittedly a little tricky without it).
But look at Neanderthals. Do you see cave drawings of them delicately slicing their mammoth steak with a knife and fork, casually switching the fork to their dominant hand to insert the morsels into their mouths? No, you do not.
They used their two good hands to get the job done. Ask any archaeologist and they’ll confirm there were no stone-carved sporks found at their last dig site. (Do most people even know an archaeologist?)
The fact of the matter is this: Tacos are a hand food, people. Heck, so are burritos, quesadillas and chips and salsa. And if tacos can be consumed sans silverware, maybe it’s time we take a look at ourselves and ask the important questions: “Why is silverware so prevalent?” and, “Who says eating with your hands isn’t civilized?”
People pay loads of money every year for new silverware. It’s on every couple’s wedding registry. There are silver ones, bronze ones, gold ones, oh my. But is all that really necessary when all you need are your hands? We think not.
Another grievance we often hear is how you have to put down your beer in order to pick up your fork and knife. If you’re eating a taco or burrito, you can one-hand the Fuzzy’s and hold your beer with the other.
See? It’s about efficiency, too. Not to mention you run the risk of looking pretty pompous when you eat tacos with a fork and knife. If you don’t believe us, watch someone eat pizza with silverware, so high and mighty.
Silverware, you’ve had your time. We at Fuzzy’s Taco Shop demand we get back to the basics. It’s time to eliminate the separation of food and hand and remember who we are as a people.
Join the movement at a Fuzzy’s near you, and remember to wash your hands thoroughly beforehand. You’re gonna need ’em clean to get ’em dirty.
