I live in the Detroit Metro area and there are a lot of Brits who work for the auto industry in my area. The other day I was in a restaurant eating breakfast and a table full of Brits were getting their food and one Brit says, "There is so much food here mates, that it's going to take me a fork-knife to eat it all."

So my question is: What's a fork-knife? Is that what Brits call sporks?

He didn't say fork-knife. What he probably said was "Pfferk-Nieg." This is a reasonably priced flatware made in Sweden that is popular in England because it can handle the caustic washing powders used in British dishwashers.

I think he meant to say "seumaar." This is a Swedish word meaning "poster takes hisself way too serious." The literal translation is "one who has his head up his own butt."

you are correct
Brits call sporks fork-knifes.
and they call chips crisps.
And they call crisps fork-knives, too.
It's Dundee rhyming slang.

I thought the whole "hurrr summer" thing was just bullshit, but as I frequented /ck/ for some time I did notice the shitpost frequency increases during the holiday breaks and summer.

I know summer is soon upon us when the harbingers appear: daffodils, hyacinths, tulips, and summerfags.

They're bloody fries not chips,
It's chips not crisps.
I'll do that thing right away not straight away.
I'm hanging up the phone not ringing off.
