The Right Way to Eat Spaghetti

1. Use your fork to separate out exactly FOUR strands.

2. Gently and politely twirl them against a spoon.

3. Eat the entire forkful at once, don't nibble it or take bites.

4. Do feel free to slurp up the noodles as necessary.

Take a look at the photos the 1942 article used to demonstrate.
