how do you eat a tamale?

Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question, but I'm not very familiar with this mushy dish wrapped in corn husks, and I have never seen someone eat one. Are you supposed to peel back the husk as you bite off pieces of the interior? Eat it with a fork and knife? Spoon? Are they generally eaten as a snack or as a main dish? If someone could enlighten me please!
