Image via WikipediaFact of Life: Kids like to have food fights (if some adult shows them how).
But......and this is a first for me.....the food fight I saw recently wasn't going on between six year olds and it happening on a busy Montreal street. People ducking hamburgers and ice cream and other assorted McDonald's goodies being hurled at great speed without aim. It was mostly teenagers having a good time - I guess they weren't really hungry and it was more fun to take part in the fight than eat the stuff......probably healthier too.
This would only happen outside a McDonald's - you wouldn't find this sort of behaviour happening outside, say, Cafe de la Paix. I didn't see any $40.00 steaks flying through the air or anyone being hosed down with Champagne.
Naturally being mature I didn't join in. Anyway, I would have had to line up for ammunition and let's face it, the whole thing would be over by the time I got back outside.
I remember the best food fights (as a kid of course), and these were my arms of choice:
- Mashed potatos
- Anything with a cream sauce
- Oatmeal (if it's thick)
- Hot dogs
- Soft bits of fruit
