While replying to a work email the other morning (really, I wasn’t looking at Instagram), I flipped my phone face first into a slice of sourdough spread with peanut butter and honey. It was impressive the extent to which the caramel goo got in everywhere: under my shiny rose-gold cover, in the grooves along the screen protector thingy, and yes, into the holes for the speaker. No cranny was left unbesmirched! It’s true: eating while tweeting is a thoroughly dangerous undertaking. Besides that, there are some foods you should just enjoy unencumbered by your device. Put those screens away, pals.
Repeated hand washing will be necessary to thoroughly degrease before you touch anything that is not the slick wax paper at the bottom of your chip packet/plate. Also see: any food that requires the use of your hands. (Cellphones are dirty, yo!)
There’s no coming back from a dip in the deep.
It is imperative that you tear off the buttery naan and scrape up the sauce. Cutlery won’t cut it here.
I mean, you’ve seen these, right?
So pretty; so impossible to eat in a dignified fashion.

These are best enjoyed with both hands. Preferably naked.
Be at one with the cheese.
You know this sucker is going to splash.
If it’s a decent falafel, more sauces and fillings will be dropping out of the bottom of the pita than will stay inside.
Welcome to the triple threat of butter, oil and cream.
