Eating Swallow Foods With Cutlery: Modernity Or Stupidity by LordBabs(m): 2:32pm On Dec 31, 2013
Many people have their secular reasons and taste when it comes to diet. Some (reasons) are warped while some are straightforward. Some (reasons) are foreign-induced while some are locally-induced. Bottom line is that for every reasons guiding your styles of diet, pleasure and satisfaction should be guaranteed.

Now, on the subject matter, say personally, I enjoy using my bare hands, as long as they are clean. But I feel embarrassed sometimes when I try that at some eateries(the likes of Mr. Biggs; Superfoods....), with the kind of scorn faces people stare at me. Thank goodness I'm a well educated fellow, someone almost called me "Ará oko"__"Bush man", when I requested for water to wash hands upon a few wraps of Iyán and Egusi soup, in one big eatery at Abeokuta recently. I rebuked the attendant's reluctance, coupled with her unsolicited advice to do with the cutlery(she pointing the situation of the cutlery). In a nutshell, she apologised and after which I implored them to always make provision for such African dish to be enjoyed by consumers who are not shy enough to suit their tastes in the African style.

Well, some of you will agree with me that some use cutlery for swallow foods, not just because they are shy of how the public would interpret them, but also because some have this crude sense of making themselves look posh or civilised or foreign, may be when on a date, or a special gathering/party/event or a crowded place/eatery, especially such that one couldn't find any one eating Amala et al. without cutlery.

But truth be told, some of you that use cutlery know full well in your heart that you would enjoy the meal better if bare hands were employed, but for one reason or the other...that, I call ENSLAVEMENT!

I know some people belong to the category of those who would first ask for cutlery for swallow foods at public events, but who wouldn't dare use cutlery in their privacy, when no one is watching. This I call HYPOCRISY!

And for those who inured in cutlery for swallow foods at your own displeasure & discomfiture, just to satisfy one "hot" guy/girl...this I call STUPIDITY!

Conclusively, I believe it doesn't mean that all (Africans especially) that use cutlery for swallow foods don't really enjoy the style. Some genuinely prefer cutlery for such meal. But for those "modernfucker" hypocrites out there...YOU R ON YA OWN! kiss kiss kiss

As for me and my family^

Why suffer twice? After suffering as a boarder I'll suffer after being a boarder too? in the name of using cutlery for foods like that.

It's about choice anyway.

First of all the white folks dont do swollow, so i dont know where those guys are coping this from. Swallow is africa thing and long age root so dont modenize it. Men next time enter GT plaza na them go give you water to wash your hand or them go show you where wash hand basin dey make you go wash and dry as well before u eat correct africa dish. That is my favorite place where i normally eat my pounded yam. By the way its not wraps of iyan. Its pounded yam an africa things i dont like when you joke with it. i dont joke with my pounded yam i will divoice any woman who cant arrange this for me always. Like the one i ate yestarday still remembering. Wow Watering mouth and licking my lips.
