I might be missing something, but Isn’t Katharine just sharing her opinions and experience, just like everyone else normally would, when there not all getting together to do a big turd.?
No, we wouldn’t “huddle” around it – as you might do around chips in paper – we’d put the sardines on toast on a plate, sit down at the table, require everyone to use their fork and knife properly, talk about what happened at school/work during the day and afterwards we’d have green jelly and sliced banana.
