Food that needs to be eaten in Private

Um, are there are some meals or dishes that are so good, and maybe so messy, like BBQ only worse, that...
I am all for good manners and such...
but the dish is so good that you sorta have to get some napkins and a bib and go off somewhere and attack whats on plate and when it's over you either take a nap or
like scooby doo you wish you could stick your whole tongue out and completely wipe your face like a windshield wiper and smile and then you have to rest cause it was just that good?

Or as my wife likes to say, she can't take me anywhere, cause I am just to much of a neanderthal?

OMG this made me laugh out loud! I think there are some. Fried chicken, man how can you not pick up that breast or drumstick with your fingers?
Ribs? All over your face and hands!
I just ate ribs out this past year for the first time because I am no lady when it comes to good BBQ ribs!
I'm okay with spaghetti. (barely) LOL
Corn on the cob? How can you have this thing in your fingers with butter dripping down your arm and be dainty?
I'll bet there are a lot more I'll think of at 3a.m. when I'm trying to get to sleep.

ChefK, you have pretty much summed up mine, but I have to add a big plate of uncut spaghetti that you have to twirl on your fork with lots of sauce and meatballs to my list. I usually just wrap a towel (bath size) around my shoulders backwards, close it with a clothes peg and go for it!

Also, how about ice cream sandwiches and other treats in the summertime, melting faster than you can eat them. Or roasted marshmallows that go all over your face!

If you're eating with a kindred spirit, you can share the gluttony and revel in the mess.

Put out the dog, lock the door, close the drapes... Oh my gosh, I have a plate of tacos on one side and a meatball sub on the other! This doesn't deserve a handful of napkins or even a dish cloth. I have to go to the linen closet and pull out an old bath towel, and the ritual must be followed step by step. Drink? Check. TV tuned to correct channel and volume set? Check. Cellphone turned off? Check. Spray spot carpet cleaner? Check. Fresh clothes ready to go? Check. Hands washed and sanitized? Check. - Dig in!!!

Oh yes, there is nothing that says togetherness like faces and hands covered in BBQ sauce!

Actually we have a restaurant chain up here called "Swiss Chalet" that specializes in chicken (and ribs), and it is a place were you can just pick up the food in your hands and eat to your heart's content! It is rotisserie chicken with a most incredible dipping sauce. The ribs are great too! Nobody minds if you get a little messy because they will too!

I love a slice of fresh tomato on my sandwich, but by the time it combines with the other ingredients, I have juice running down my arms.

I am, in general, a messy eater. You can always tell where I ate last, because the chair has a circle of food around it. Kim often blots my chin with his napkin...bless his heart.

I like my burgers medium rare and juicy. I top them with mayo, tomato and pickle. When I take a bite, the juices are everywhere. Napkins don't cut it. SO doesn't like to watch.

i must agree with tacos, a nice juicy burger with ketchup, a chilli dog or burger, watermellon, a nice ripe peach or necterine and cantaloupe all drip down your arms to your elbows and/or down your chin!!
