: "keep your fork duke, there's pie " was said to the duke of edinburogh [sorry, I don't know how to spell it]by a server while having dinner on a visit to canada. there are countless versions of the story and what part of canada it occurred in. does anyone know ?

I like the story! Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland. English people know how to spell but not how to pronounce it.
