Annals of Unasked Questions, Part the Second

Thursday, August 26th, 2010

billy corgan with a dirty handFloFab, today:

Q: You have probably received this question a million times but I couldn’t find it in the archives. My boyfriend licks his fingers really noisily, I’m not used to licking fingers at all when at table (whether at home or in a restaurant). What can I say in a polite way to make him stop?

A. If your boyfriend licks his fingers noisily, you might suggest he use silverware. Or bring some packaged towelettes along and hand him one
Are we talking about a man who does not use silverware? And that is not an issue, it is just the licking? More specifically, the sound of the licking? Or do they only go to restaurants that do have finger food, but don’t have napkins? This will haunt me for weeks.

Hey FloFab, Can You Spare a Dime?

Or maybe $549.99, to buy one of the D’Artagnan hams you wrote about today? Or $115 for some “summer truffles?” Who is this lady? If she is trying to make a living off her writing, she’d have to get more than $7/word to break even on these stories.

Sidenote on D’Artagnan–they were pestering us via Twitter to write about them during the Fancy Food Festival.

Outrageous, indeed.

Salt Lick at the NYT

Monday, June 7th, 2010

Table salt is basically for the salt addict. It adds nothing to the flavor of food. (It’s too late, and it’s crummy salt anyway.)

Really, we could spend all day posting comments. This is someone responding to the (always entertaining) “Dear Floflab” last week, in which the author said she wished more restaurants had salt on the table.
