Cutlerivore

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: kut-le-REE-voor

Sentence: When Bob's cobbers saw him hoe into his tucker - a hamburger with the lot -with the silverware, they sat there like stunned mullets. And Roxie gave Doc Howlong a tingle to come and see what was up with Bob. On being told that Bob may have a touch of the barcoo rot, Roxie chucked a wobbly, thinking that Bob was a goner about to tumble off the twig at any tick of the clock. But in the end, it was decided that Bob was simply a cutlerivore, and that Roxie's only real worry would be the "elliot ness".

Etymology: Blend of cutlery & vore: one who will touch and eat food only with cutlery. (not one who eats cutlery: consider philanderer!)

I actually got the idea from a Seinfeld episode, the one where Elaine witnesses her boss Mr. Pitt eating a Snickers bar with a knife & fork.

I was thinking of using a chocolate bar in the comic, but then I remembered this girl from grade school who ate ants. Of course, she used her fingers. ~ James
