When I serve ribs I put a small plate with a washcloth moistened with warm water at each place setting. That way I can get as messy as I want and the guests can stay as clean as they care to.

If I could get someone to do it with me, I'd go out to the back yard with a big slice of watermellon, with seeds, eat huge moutfulls, burying my face in the ripe watermellon flesh, and spit seeds at someone who will spit them back at me. The perfect food fight. Now how's that for "not for polite company"?
Other messy favorites:
1. Good ribs, slathered with bbq sauce,
2. my eggrolls with pineapple sweet & sour sauce,
3. Oven-fried chicken (so juicy it squirts you when you bite into it)
4. a great burger with all the fixins
5. a proper grilled cheese sandwich with cheese dripping from the sides
6. meatball sandwich, with extra sauce
7. pulled pork sandwich
8. Sloppy Joe sandwich
9. Corn on the cob, dripping with butter
10. a 3-scoop strawberry-cheesecake ice cream cone on a hot August day
11. Proper tacos, made from fresh corn tortillas, fried in hot oil for 15 senonds, and folded around any of several great toppings, with Sriracha Sauce and extra guacomole.
12. s'mores made over a campfire
13 cold-cut submarine sandwich made at this one gas-starion On U.S. 2, traveling West from St. Ignace Mi. toward Manistique, with a built in deli. Ingredients include super soft, and lightly toasted white, submarine bread roll, with salami, double stack of pepperoni (hold the ham please), double stack of capiacola, aged swiss cheese, sliced black olives, lettuce leaves (romaine of course), sliced tomato, sliced onion, and diced green pepper, all drizzled with extra virgin olive oil. Try eating that one while driving to the work-site in Manistique!

Just for the heck of it, and this going back a ways, does anyone remember the eating scene in the movie "Tom Jones"?

We have a Medieval Manor here in Boston. a girl I used to date was friends with one of the serving wenches so she got us in for free. The food is not the main attraction, that is for sure. You go for the show.

There is not a food out there that I would need to eat in private. If it is a messy food then I will eat it and get messy and be proud to show my stained face and clothes

a chocolate fountain with plenty of fruit and pound cake, but ....no forks or skewers only fingers (compound this by using the same scenario at a 5 year olds birthday party. Can you say "time to re-carpet?"

Definitely!!! One of the best film food scenes ever!

Another one I always enjoy is the prison dinner prep scene from "Goodfellas" - slicing the garlic paper-thin with a razor blade, the terrific "gravy" ("Don't add too many onions!), the lobsters, etc., etc. I can almost smell it every time I see it.

this is my thoughts. if the resturant serves "messy" food than anyone who goes there expects to get messy!! so everyone is on level ground. eat and enjoy getting messy.
