Embarrassing Restaurant Moments.

While thinking about the barbecue topic posted earlier, I was reminded of an incident that happened to me a number of years ago. I was having dinner with a group of friends at a large popular barbecue restaurant in Austin TX, and the conversation became rather animated. I began waving my hands around to emphasize a point when a beef rib approximately the size of a Louisville Slugger slipped out of my fingers and assumed a flight trajectory which took it almost completely across the room, eventually coming to a crash landing in the middle of another party's table. Naturally everyone in the restaurant (including me and my companions - we're no dummies) immediately began looking around in amazement to see where this meaty missile might have originated. Unfortunately, the jig was up when my "friends" then fell off their chairs and wet themselves in laughter.

Anyone else? (Contributions with risque content will be worth extra credit).
