Jack off with spaghetti

opinion

In trying to cope with our diverse culture there are Jack off with spaghetti important problems than the proper way to eat spaghetti, but having opened the subject, I feel obliged to pass on some of the suggestions I have received. You may recall that my own method is to push the spaghetti up against my upper incisors with my tongue, biting off the strings and allowing them to fall into the plate. This does not, however, meet with the approval of my wife.

I was shocked to find that the proper method according to "Miss Manners' Guide to Excruciatingly Correct Behavior" is simply to suck up, or slurp, the strands into the mouth. Among the numerous readers who have responded, only one recommended Miss Manners' method.

I have found this to be the best solution to the problem and recommend you do the same. The Italian is Sophia Loren. Most readers recommend the use of a fork in company with a large spoon, though Miss Manners dismissed the use of a spoon as uncivilized.

A gentle up and down motion will not cause separation of the strings. In the end, one must bite off the strings or slurp them. Push a small portion away from the rest of the pasta on your plate, then twirl it until a reasonable amount is nicely entwined on the fork.

This is comparable to the etiquette of spooning soup away from you, or not trying to eat an entire piece of bread without first breaking it into pieces. I fail to see the parallel between those procedures. I have never, to begin with, seen any Jack off with spaghetti reason for spooning soup away from oneself.

Virginia Martin also recommends a fork-only method. No mess, no stringing. Abato recommends cutting up the spaghetti into small lengths. You will like it. Short strands of spaghetti Jack off with spaghetti more likely to slip off the fork than long ones.

One finds oneself ducking one's head down to snap off a few strands before they slip off the fork and plop into the plate. Believe me, it's worse than biting them off. I am much heartened by the opinion of Nelson Fay of Encino, who says he doubts that anyone could claim to have come from a family more Italian than his.

And I must tell you you do it right! I have, on occasion, suggested to fellow diners to look the other way if my seeming sloppiness offended them, but there just isn't any other way to do it. If Miss Manners cares to revise her book, I offer her my method free of charge. It may not be civilized, but it works. If Sophia slurps, that's OK with me. I just don't think I have the panache for it. Seizure Led to FloJo's Death. His scores make his case. Copyright Los Angeles Times.
