Side-On Cutlery Makes It Almost Safe to Eat at Your Aunt's Grimy House

The germaphobe in us always freaks out a little bit when we see silverware lying on a bare table, either at someone else's house or a restaurant. (Our own table is a chemical-cleaner-scorched wasteland.) So we hope that eventually all silverware will be like Jens-Martin Skibsted's designs for Side-On Cutlery, which have built-in stands that keep the parts that touch your food and your mouth gloriously contact-free from dirty, microbe-infested surfaces. Well, your germy-ass mouth aside. [Mater Design via Boing Boing]

Have you ever noticed how unhygenic hygiene freaks are? My grandfather was one, and he wouldn't toucha nything without a hanky, but he carried that same hanky around for days on end. I can just see someone who is all jazzed about this "Now i never have to have my fork touch the table again!!" well first, put your fork on the plate instead of the table, and can you imagine, youknow someone like this is going to carry this shit around in their backpack or pocket all day and will rinse it off as needed...

nasty...
