Quotation recognition

In a webcomic today, one of the characters is eating using an implement with three tines.

The webcomic concerned has an RSS feed which is syndicated to LJ, and so there's a post for it today.

I commented saying "Three tines is not a fork. Three tines is a trident. Forks are for eating, tridents are for ruling the Seven Seas."

People have replied as if I'm making a serious point about suitable implements for eating.
