Oxford-educated Brit Army General bans officers from eating sandwiches because eating with hands is "barbaric".
An army chief has proposed that soldiers should not be served sandwiches because 'a gentleman or lady always uses a knife and fork'.
In a memo addressing poor etiquette in the Army, Major General James Cowan also urged junior officers to 'make an effort at conversation' and said the key to a successful marriage was to 'never to sit next to your spouse at dinner.'
The decorated soldier, who is in charge of around 2,500 troops in the UK, wrote the three-page note to senior officers after noticing standards had slipped at Bulford barracks in Wiltshire.
He said: 'Quite a few officers in the divisional mess seem to be under the impression that they can eat their food with their hands.
'The practice of serving rolls and sandwiches in the mess is to stop. A gentleman or lady always uses a knife and fork.'

The real joke is when people eat wet food with their hands.

Dry food like sandwiches or biscuits are ok in my book.
Practise makes perfect, if the thing you are practising is perfect to begin with!

If he considers eating sandwiches "barbaric", how he rates eating pussy????

If you scroll down to the end of the article it says it was meant in a light hearted way. Sigh...
But hey the Daily Fail never lets the facts get in the way of a good headline.

Note to self - be careful with your banter because clueless folks on twitter, forums and the like will make a dogs dinner out of it.

Surely, the general knows that the sandwich was itself supposedly invented by a prior former military aristocrat, the 4th Earl of Sandwich:

I wonder if officers will be courtmartialed if they don't extend their pinky while drinking tea?
