Watch: Why Internet Can’t Stop Laughing At This Etiquette Coach’s Pear-Eating Lesson

There are many rules to follow when it comes to British dining etiquette. There is a rule to follow for everything, from what to wear to where to sit and how to eat. One video that is currently going viral is How to Eat an Apple Formally. William Hanson, an etiquette expert, shared the video on his Instagram account. He captioned his tutorial, in which he is seen eating a pear at a table.
Hanson is seen eating a pear with a knife. As instructed by the coach, here’s how you should eat pears:

  1. You will need to use a sharp knife and a fork.
  2. Cut the pear into half and use a spear.
  3. Cut it again in half.
  4. Next, remove the pips from the fruit and set them aside.
  5. Finally, slice a small portion and eat with a fork.

More than 32 million people have viewed the video. The video was not considered by most viewers for its information but rather because they found it funny and bizarre. “Is it meant to be funny?” A user commented on the post, and the coach responded, “I’m so serious, it hurts.”

I am going to put the best cutlery and crockery in my boyfriend’s bag for his lunch tomorrow so he can eat his pear there.
You can eat the whole thing in one bite.

“A very sharp blade indeed.”
