As Ed and Edna sat at their table, enjoying a romantic dinner, they returned their menus to the waiter and eagerly awaited their meals. When the dishes arrived, Ed reached for his silverware but accidentally dropped the fork.
The restaurant fell into a tense silence. Then everyone began rushing to grab the fork in an attempt to bring it back to Ed. In the chaos, tables were overturned and dishes were broken. The restaurant quickly descended into anarchy as people fought for the fork.
Ed and Edna tried to escape the pandemonium but were caught in the stampede of people rushing towards the fork. They were knocked to the ground and trampled as the free-for-all raged on around them.
Eventually, the fork was claimed by a burly man who brandished it triumphantly above his head before the fork was finally returned to its rightful place at the dinner table.
