Hey, I'm missing a fork over here!

I know the real reason why:

Forkless Friday at Obama event

-Does a fork or dinner knife pose an unacceptable danger to President Barack Obama? One wouldn’t think so, given the hundreds of lunches and dinners he’s attended ranging from state dinners to political fundraisers to run-of-the-mill stops on the rubber-chicken circuit. However, at one such lunch Friday afternoon, guests heard an unusual announcement that they needed to hand over their silverware for security reasons.
They're not confiscating forks for security reasons; it's 'cause they don't want someone poking Obama with one to see if he's done.

Proving that the President is more like a king than G. Washington ever realized.

I like this observation regarding the removal of cutlery that may be found at

"Knives are also routinely confiscated at Joe Biden’s dinner speeches, but that’s to eliminate any chance of audience members taking their own lives."
