A very modern conversation:

Do you know how to carve a turkey?

(pause) (quiet extends) Noo, do you?

No that is why I am asking YOU.

Oh, maybe Jeff knows how to carve a turkey.

… Jeff enters room

Jeff do you know how to carve a turkey?

J: No, but doesn’t it just peel away on each side until you get to the bones?

What is pathetic about this conversation is that we’re all well educated adults over the age of 30.  Sad.  Pathetic.  Modern.

Somewhere along the line we lost our basic abilities to care for ourselves.  Not that carving a turkey is a necessary skill that rates up there with boiling water and wiping one’s bum.  But still, it strikes me as pretty basic.
