This is a question LOL Bigots

Freddie Woo says: "A bloke who lived next door to my mum told me on the day Diana died that it was 'God's punishment for sleeping with an Arab'". Tell us stories of bigots, racists, sexists, homophobes and loud-mouths so that we may point and laugh

Table Monners
As an impecunious music student, I and some chums played string quartet gigs for functions, dinners, weddings etc. One rather sumptuous affair had perhaps the godfather of the modern-day bigot as guest-of-honour, the Very Reverend Doctor Ian Paisley.

We were positioned behind, and a little to the right of the top table, and from this discreet vantage point were able to see how this formidable one-man bible-bashing-blitzkrieg conducted himself amongst the genteel.

Looking from left to right along the backs of the honoured guests, my eyes stopped at the area below Dr. Paisley's seat. There was more food down there than there was on his plate. I wondered how was it possible that a man of the pulpit, and whom God, in His infinite wisdom had provided tenfold in the gob department, was able to miss?

A little later whilst playing Tchaikovsky's sensual and supremely peaceful Andante Cantabile from his first string quartet, we heard the great voice itself, booming down the table towards his daughter:

None of us kept straight faces and I actually ended up in tears from suppressed laughter. Fail.

This one?

May be an Irish trait...
I once went to the wedding of a one time girlfriend whose family were exceedingly Hoirish. Lovely people and a great wedding, but during the meal, you could often hear the like of "Bejaze, Auntie Kat'leen, will you not be eatin' that potaaaato you've got left on your plate" and forks descending upon plates not in front of the fork wielder. I actually saw one carrot manage to travel half way down a long table, being transported from plate to plate.

In fact, having heard the horrendous statistic that 30% of food in the UK is thrown away, we could do with being a little less reticent about eating other people's leftovers. I know it doesn't bother me!
