As is often the case with these polls, there should be at least a fourth category. I probably WOULD embarrass myself at a swank dinner but certainly could handle something a little "tonier:"than fast food!

But the real test of shwanky elitism is: Do you know how to pronounce 'bruschetta'?

Yes, but I wouldn't call that a swanky dish.

It's an easy rule: Asuming the table is set correctly, work from the outside in. There should be no peices set which will not be used.

Unfortunately there are idiots who having bought a delux set of silverware with tools for absolutely everything, will put them all out, even when they aren't appropriate. You don't put out the lobster forks unless you are serving lobster, etc, etc, ad nauseum.

Easy. Eat with the right hand, scratch with the left. (or was that left then right ? . . . )

I don't lick my plate clean anymore, but I still like to toss my steak up in the air, catch it in my teeth, and the shake it vigorously before eating it.

Mine is fine, I think: efficient. But my wife keeps telling me that I should take more than one bite to eat a slice of pizza.
