"keep your fork duke, there's pie'

regarding a posting I had a few weeks ago"

There is a rather witty little story we hear once in a while
here in Canada about when the Duke of Edinburough,
the Queen's husband, was on a trip that took him up north
to a place in northern Canada called Yellowknife. While
having lunch at one of the restaurants a waitress
made a remark that clearly reflects the kind of honesty
we are speaking about. Quite without pretense when the
Duke had finished his main meal the waitress came by
to pick up the plates and said "Keep the fork, Duke,
there's pie."
