Top 11 Dining Fouls

Top 11 Dining Fouls

Judith Haeusler, Getty Images According to Miss Manners and other etiquette pros, these are some of the most offensive things you can do at the dinner table. So, unless you want to get nixed from next year's Thanksgiving list, you should probably suppress the urge to...

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting11. Lick your fingers and smack your lips while exclaiming "that was finger-lickin' good!"

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting10. Loudly announce “I’m stuffed” or “I shouldn’t have eaten all of that” while rubbing your belly and unbuttoning your pants.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting9. Blow your nose into your napkin or cough without covering your mouth...especially while passing the potatoes.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting8. Leave food on your fork then wildly wave it around as you talk.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting7. Before eating, cut up your entire plate of food into tiny bite-sized pieces.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting6. Pile as much turkey, mashed potatoes, peas and stuffing on your fork as you can, then stuff the entire thing in your mouth.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting5. Rock back in your chair so just the rear legs are touching. Grab onto your neighbor every time you start to lose your balance.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting4. Tuck your napkin into your collar, belt, or between the buttons of your shirt.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting3. Pick all the food out of your teeth with a toothpick, your fingernail, a dinner knife or your tongue. Better yet, take out your findings to examine them.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting2. Use your knife or fork to dig out any food or dirt lodged under your fingernails. Leave your "treasure" on the side of the plate.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting1. Participate in the conversation despite a mouth full of food or drink.

You may think I put too many lambs in this post. Oh well. You have to realize this is a lamb blog and you come here expecting to see lambs. I added the pink lamb for pink who likes the color pink. If you do think too many lambs are in this post, (too bad) consider this, I was going to add more lambs at the end of each sentence and put more lambs on top of this post. I like these lambs a lot so expect to see more in my posts. I'm going to put them to work.

dining fouls...

you could add 'be a turkey' to make it an even dozen

/t.

Pink said...

no no t, turkey are fowls not fouls! ;)

Thanks for the pink lambies, lambie pie! xxxxxxxxxxx!

I would have to say that it depends on where you're invited for dinner.

In some houses - this would be their 'best' manners ;)

(ever see Chevy Chase's Christmas vacation?)

Lexcen said...

I guess this means I won't be getting invited to dinner. And I do like roast lamb.

foam said...

i like the purple lambs since that's my favorite color besides charcoal gray.
i guess i'll try to improve my table manners.

Mighty Dyckerson said...

Nice post, )t. Does Lambo write any of this shit anymore?

Little Lamb said...

/t. I haven't thought of that.

Pink, I may have seen that movie, and you're right it depends on where you go for Thanksgiving. Didn't think of that either.

dotted Foam, Why thank you for liking my selection of lambs, especially the purple one. I don't think meth lamb made it into this post.

Ruela, You are a sweetheart. <3<3 Can you teach me how to do that?

Dycko, For your information I got this post all by myself on my ISP. I copied and pasted it all by myself. And I added the lambs all by myself. I'm a big girl now.

The Phosgene Kid said...

Dropping your pants and wiping your ass on the table cloth is also frowned upon in many cultures.

I found out putting your hand into the turkey and making him dance is also frowned upon at the dinner table, besides imparting some rather bad burns to the puppeteer.

Little Lamb said...

I never knew that, Phos. Thanks for sharing.

Scary Monster said...

Picking yer nose, rolling it into a tight little homunculus and flicking it onto yer neighbors plate telling them it's a caper be somewhat frowned upon.

BURP!

Little Lamb said...

That's frowned upon, Scary? Thanks for sharing. You sound like Dycko.

Corn Dog said...

I was going to mention boogers but Scary beat me to it. The orange lamb likes me. Okay, I think picking up the drumstick and playing it like a violin is ill advised. Feeding peas to the dog is wrong. Hiding Gramma's dentures is bad. oh yeah, we were talking about dinner.

carmen said...

or...lick your fingers and smack your lips after you blow your nose in your hand while exclaiming "that was finger/licking good"...

or rub your belly and unbottom your pants while waving them around as you say " i am stuffed"

or make your rear legs touch your neighbor's while tucking your napkin into her collar, belt, or between the buttons of her shirt

and, of course, you may frown if you still can...

Little Lamb said...

Corn Dog, You mean all of those things are bad? I better stop doing them then.

The orange lamb likes you? That's a good thing.

Carmen, those are good ones. You mean I can't do that either?

carmen said...

of course YOU CAN, LL...:)

who cares about a frown here and there...:):)

Little Lamb said...

but I want to do what's right and proper.

Corn Dog said...

Lamb, I got a phone call at 2am last night. It was orange lamb. He was drunk. He had his jump rope and was whipping someone's car.

carmen said...

LL, exactly....this is right and proper...

i've been through it all...and you know how socially successful and tactful i am, don't you ??

:) (:

Little Lamb said...

Corn dog, are you sure it was one of my lambs?

Carmen, No I don't.

Ruela said...

Lamb in colour...raw colours...warm colours...lively colours...pale complexion...colours...colours...colours...blow off steam :)

Little Lamb said...

I like different colors.

Ruela said...

The Phosgene Kid said...

Great big gobs of greasey, grimey gopher guts,
mutilated monkey meat,
little baby ducky feet,
great big gobs of greasey grimey gopher guts,
and me without a spoon!!

Bon Apetit!!!

Little Lamb said...

Ok, now I know what happened to the baby duck's feet.

/t. said...

it's why
mrs phos insists
he eat with that mask

/t.

Little Lamb said...

Is that why he wears a mask all the time?

Ruela said...

embarrass me?

i'm cool

Ruela said...

Little Lamb said...

GOOD!!!!

Little Lamb said...

If you're cool and I'm cool, that means we're both cool! :-)

Corn Dog said...

Is your orange lamb's name Marvin?

The Phosgene Kid said...

More lambs! I simply must have more lambs!!!!!

Little Lamb said...

Corn Dog, Marvin? No.

Phos, you'll have to keep coming here.

The Phosgene Kid said...

I will!!! Haven't seen any flaming lambs in a while, /t. must be slipping...

Little Lamb said...

PHOS!

Ruela said...

Ruela said...

you got my mail...

Little Lamb said...

I did. I emailed back.

..................... said...

and i hope you had a happy thanksgiving too, LL...
if you've noticed. no lambs or little lamb turkey friends were harmed during any of my visits..

Little Lamb said...

I did have a good Thanksgiving. Thank you.

That's because Ruela is taking care of me and won't let anything happen to me.

foam said...

yes, i've gathered that he is..

but i'm older and sneakier than he is..
i could get around him.
but, alas, i'm actually rather harmless.

Little Lamb said...

Maybe, maybe not.

I do feel you are rather harmless, though.

carmen said...

i am harmful ,though

Little Lamb said...

Harmful? Harmful in what way? Shall I call my shepherd?

foam said...

harmless yes..
but beware the mischievous streak.
did your lambs plump up nicely over thanksgiving, little lamb? ;)

Little Lamb said...

Oh, so you;re the mischievous one. Plump up? We had a lot to eat. There are still plenty of leftovers for us to feed on.

How was your Thanksgiving? Did you get plenty to eat?

carmen said...

yes, call a shepherd, LL, but make sure it's not old sweet Lon, please ..he is harmless..

puerileuwaite said...

I have a fantasy based around #5 where I'm sitting between Loni Anderson and Dolly Parton, and I get slapped a lot during the meal. Which probably makes this comment inappropriate and adds it to the list of things we shouldn't do.

carmen said...

'course, pueri, if you try the elasticity of their face liftings..

Skunkfeathers said...

Making the dinner turkey "hand jive" has not been one of my table stunts. I once kilt the dinner turkey. In April. And it wasn't the target. But I digress.

My table manners are any bit as good as those of the Three Stooges...
