This rather ploddingly performed skit about the importance of table manners tackles its subject by mostly considering issues of how to use forks. Although it mentions consideration for others as one of the reasons for good manners, it quickly gets bogged down in the minute details of good table manners ca. 1950 and the personal benefits: your boss will promote you! Pretty girls will go to bed with you! This was for many years, the purpose of manners: an elaborate code of arbitrary rules to be performed with no clear reason except to serve as a class marker. This piece does try to point out some of the reasons for some of these rules, but the dull way in which the lecture is recited will not help to make the entire operation seem anything but pointless.
