Regardez ce qui se produit quand des baguettes sont demandées


On peut souvent rire quand des Australiens essayent de manger avec des baguettes. Mon ami Leroi aurait mangé un dîner chaud, s'il avait été offert une cuillère (ou une pelle).
Moi, je suis naturellement un mangeur rapide. Pourquoi pensez-vous que j'ai pris cette photo ?
Look what happens when you ask for chopsticks !
One can often laugh when Australians attempt to eat with chopsticks.
My friend Leroi would have eaten a hot dinner, if he had been offered a spoon (or a shovel).
Me, I am naturally a fast eater. Why do you think that I took this photo?

lol. I'm a slow eater. I probably talk too much. Trouble is, i'm not comfortable once others have finished theirs, to then finish mine alone. I often end up leaving it rather than do that. My first husband was very polite and kind; he would always slow right down, so that we would finish more or less at the same time. I miss him sometimes! Where are you, George? lol....

Sometimes is OK.
He sounds like a gentleman.
I'm actually a slow eater too. I just had to take that shot while the going was good.
Hope you're on the mend, Lynn. I know these things take time, so don't rush things. Easy does it !!

I think one has to learn to eat with chopsticks at a young age. My eight year old daughter has no problem eating with chopsticks, has been doing it since she was three. Now, me? I usually end up wearing some of my food when I attempt to use chopsticks.

You think Australians are bad with chopsticks, Monsieur?
Joy told me a lovely story this week.
She was in our local Japanese restaurant and a loud party of Poms came in and proceeded to pick up their disposable chopsticks and NOT SEPARATE THEM! They just speared into their sushi with the chopsticks still stuck together!
Hee hee hee hee hee!
What a crappy country we are.

J'ai déjà mangé avec des baguettes, ce n'est pas très facile mais j'y arrivais. Mais c'est mieux avec une fourchette ou une cuillère. Leroi a peut-être plus été rapide pour boire le vin rouge que pour manger le contenu de son bol.

M.Benaut said...

Vous êtes correct au sujet de mon ami drôle, Claude.
Il ne déteste pas le vin rouge.

Aujourd'hui, l'Australie est le quatrième plus grand exportateur du vin, se vendant à plus de 100 pays autour du monde et contribuant $5.5 milliards à l'économie de la nation.

Nous apprécions certainement le vin rouge ici, vers le bas dessous.

Oh, funny photo!

Vero,
A Adelaide mangiamo l'alimento italiano molto, ma mai con le bacchette !!

Dive,
At least that's better than using fingers ?
