He said "anybody would tink you's was born in a barn the way you's guy's was eatin'!" And I became very crestfallen, and shame face, because I didn't know how you ate a salad if you didn't eat it the way I ate it, I just stuck a fork in the bowl and whatever comes up on the fork is what I ... Davy's salad came and he cut the salad carefully into one inch strips, turned the bowl 90 degrees and cut the strips into one inch squares, doused it with blue cheese and tossed it carefully until each and every square was thoroughly soppingly coated with blue cheese, and then reached in and grabbed a great big fistful and smashed it in his face!"
