I replied, "Yep, it certainly could be. And I bet they do a great job with it."

It was delicious.

I absolutely hate this too. It makes them look like a 3 year old.

The best pizza around is Chicago deep-dish, which you pretty much have to eat with a fork anyway.

No, you like Chicago deep-dish pizza best. I'm kind of neutral towards it.

I have a friend who eats like that. He also holds his knife in such a strange way, I can't describe it without having him sitting in front of me, doing it. And he sucks all his food into his mouth rather than letting the utensil touch his mouth. Oh, the noises he makes when he eats. Especially soup. Uggh.

But a plain piece of cheese pizza being eaten with a knife and fork? I have seen people do that. They just look silly.
My fiance were on vacation this summer in San Francisco, and there was a European couple seated near us (could hear the accents). They proceeded to both order hamburgers and fries, and ate the entire plate with knife and fork, slicing off piece by piece of the burger. I was dumbstruck, having never seen such a thing, and hope I wasn't staring too much, but it was one of those things you can't quite look away from, lol ...

the food-sucker!! I have witnessed this! this lady at work use to do this....
she would put a grape in a spoon,,,hold it close to her mouth and suck it in...
it was the oddest thing,,,,she did this with many foods....
the high frequency suction sound was a bit annoying after a while

The most annoying thing about that to me would be that it falls to the womanfolk to cut the corn off the cob FOR him. You aren't three, cut your own damned food.
