Eating and enjoying food is one of life's true pleasures, and each of us has our own unique style when it comes to chowing down here in America and they sure do around the world.  I found of list of some rather odd things concerning eating food around the world.  Get ready for this!




A buddy of mine from high school loves to visit Thailand and over there it's considered crude to put food in your mouth using a fork.  Instead, the fork is used to push food onto the spoon, which is then put into your mouth.

How about Japan?  Loudly slurping noodles and soup is acceptable there, and is believed to actually improve the flavor of the food and allow the person eating the food to enjoy hotter foods more quickly.

Over in South Korea, nobody at the table eats until the oldest person takes a bite.

In some Inuit(the native people--similar to eskimos) cultures of Canada, it's an act of appreciation to fart after a meal.
