	Nope....that's European style.  What's weird is when you get
taught both styles (my folks are from Europe, but I was born and raised in
Virginia, and my mom insisted that I know how to eat politely, in
either style...)..What's weird is when you mix up the two, and realize it.

	Now, let's play a bit of trivia....How many of you know where the
American tradition of eating with your right hand and having your left
hand in your lap, when not cutting comes from??:)
