Last week I was at a retreat and they served lobster for one of the dinner. We received assigned seats so that would have to meet different people in our department. I are only about five black people at the retreat so of course I was the only nigga at my table. My plan was to eat my meal quickly and leave so I don't have to deal with that awkward ass situation. The problem was that I had no idea how to eat that lobster. Luckily another person didn't know what they was doing either, so we received tutorial from the rest of the table. It definitely broke and ask and lead to pretty decent conversation.
The only way it could go wrong is if one person knows how to eat crawfish and uses it as an opportunity to be pretentious. They are probably the same people that go to Chinese restaurants and gives you the side eye for using a fork.
