What's the deal with prosciutto and fruit? I went to an engagement party on Friday night where they had canteloupe wrapped in prosciutto, and now I read in the New York Times that that's how one is supposed to eat prunes, er, dried plums. Is this some trend that everyone else knew about and is only now trickling into the the flyover states?

Prosciutto and melon is a fairly traditional sort of Italian anipasto, and the Wikipedia article on "prosciutto" seems to confirm this. It may have become trendy or spread to the "flyover states", of course, but it's not new.
