Mind you I have always wanted to to all cave man and just grab the bone and sink my teeth into the meat, (LOL, sounds like the sort of thing that goes on in those male sauna)

As usual lowering the tone of the discussion.

People who eat like this eat everything in this fashion not just steak. It is how they have been taught.

Plus, your theory would not explain the fork.

Oh, it does explain. Try to cut something hard holding the fork the proper way and most likely you will bend it :P

...which raises the question, where the hell do you go out to dinner such that you know about the advantage of gripping a fork while trying to cut very tough meat?

:P

You're either eating cheap steak, or using cheap cutlery! :)

I remember a time when I broke a chopstick while trying to get rice so I could put it in my mouth to eat it.

Holy canoli! (Brah, when's the last time you had a good canoli!)
So a bit of humour is injected into a thread asking why our 'Merkin brothers change hands after cutting food and this guy, PacificRimJob, sends me three quite abusive PMs . . .

She seems to be quite the PMT queen.


Ok, so . . . why doe you guys change the fork to the right hand after cutting something?

PacifiRimJob . . . 'ello darlin' :wave:

Hehe, I was just joking about pacificrimjob being a female . . . but it turns out she is one . . . single (no surprise) and 35 years old . . .

I thought Canadians were nice, but some of the blue language . . . whew, I almost blushed :-s


(typo)

It's obvious really. It's so they can scratch their heads with their left, and so figure where to put the fork.

(In case you fell in lust with my avatar. . . sorry, that isn't me)

Why not simply publish them for all to see.

Go on, you know you should!

Edit to add:
Or we could always post suggestions of what is being written to you, and you can give us marks out of ten.

Isn't it . . . and then imagine a pacific-sized one . . . that's a lot of Big Macs in 35 years.

I believe that is against forum rules because they are 'private' . . . but she clearly is a few slices short of a loaf.

(Suggestions would be acceptable in the shady legal world of forum law!)

Actually, your comment reminded me of one of my favourite Aussie ad series' tag lines:

Go on, why not encourage the stalker? [sigh]

Look, here.

PacRim, any more offensive PMs will be re-posted publicly, together with your back catalogue. Got it?
