“I’m About to Stab that Lady in the Throat with an Espresso Spoon”

Redditor SoulDevil74 once overheard a customer rudely talking to a waitress, so SoulDevil74 told the waitress she was doing a great job. The waitress gave SoulDevil74 a check. On the back of the check, the waitress wrote, “Thank you for your comment. I’m about to stab that lady in the throat with an espresso spoon.” Of course, spoons are not ideal implements for stabbing; however, the movie Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves contains this dialogue: “I’m gonna cut your heart out with a spoon!” “Why a spoon, cousin? Why not an axe?” “Because it’s DULL, you twit. It’ll hurt more.” By the way, Redditor prettyforariot often watched this movie and could quote from it extensively when she was a little girl. She commented, “In kindergarten I could quote [it] like nothing else and I always appreciated the spoon threat so I told another kid who stole my jello that I was going to cut out his heart with a spoon. He looked at me like I was crazy and asked ‘why?’ I looked at him ‘wickedly’, as my teacher wrote down in a report, raised my plastic spork over my head, and screamed ‘because it’s dull and it will HURT MORE.’ (I misquoted because I knew it was bad to call people mean things.) I wasn’t going to actually do anything, but all [of] the sudden I was scooped up by my teacher, carried to the principal’s office, and had my parents called. Being a little girl with pigtails, a pink Minnie [Mouse] dress, and no other instances of bad behavior, I didn’t get in trouble. My Dad pretended to be mad when he picked me up (the principal wanted me to go home so my Dad could explain why what I did was wrong), but he gave me a high five in the car and told me he was proud I was his daughter.” Also by the way, David Bruce says, “Never be rude to a person who spends time alone with your food.”
