  1. Enough of the small talk, it's time for a topic so controversial Jeff Berlin wouldn't give his opinion.

    How do you cut and eat your oranges?

    Jame Gumb (silence of the lambs) liked to peel the skin off in one piece.
    Jeffrey Dahmer would cut them into quarters and eat them.
    Circumincision involves a careful cut around the equator, and peeling back the skin into two hemispheres
    Mum's Packed Lunch is cut longways into 8 segments.
    Carrots means some other way, please describe.

    Ah, the wonders of flensing!

    I keep telling my boss "more carrot, less stick" and he keeps saying "no carrot, all stick". :(
     
  3. I don't eat oranges, but if I did, I'd have to say the first option.

    I tear in at the top with a thumb or pocketknife, and peel away the skin by hand. Then I tear it in half and pull out the stringy thing and the thing at the end that sometimes looks like a little teeny orange in itself. If it does have mini-orange in it, I eat that, too.
    Somehow this sounds very gruesome right now. I feel like a killer.

    I peel oranges and grapefruits the same way. Just peel 'em however they peel. But carrots will always be carrots. Unpeeled, peeled, cooked, raw. It doesn't matter. Carrots are the reason for all existence. Without carrots, there would be nothing but despair and no reason for oranges to be.

    Leslie Keno looks like hell! Good God, but he's aged badly. He looks like an 80 year old man!

    Cut at the equator and eat it with a spoon.

    BTW, I never eat them that way, but it is preferred.

    I bite the end off, rip off the peel with my nails and eat the orange. What style is that? Would it be carrots?

    S'what I do too. Nibble off the end. Jam my thumbnail down in there and start tearing away. Then I pull it apart and eat the slices. .....that just pull apart. No knife needed whatsoever.

  10. I twist the cap, it makes a cracking sound, pull down on the "sealed for your protection" thing, then pour into a tall glass and enjoy.

    Carrots:

    I gouge a hole above the navel with my fingers, and peel the entire thing. Then I peel the white stringy crap off, then put my finger through the center, remove the nasty white bit in the middle, separate each individual section, peel the white bit off the top of each section. Then I can eat them.

    I call this the OCD method or; (O)range (C)omplete (D)econstruction method.
