Daily, I observe the art of food fighting in the lunchroom. I pick up a lot of tips and would consider myself an expert, just from observing. The only weapon used is the plastic spoon to “flick” food. Throwing food is not generally accepted, though some very low characters may try it. The technique is very important. The right hand holds the spoon while the thumb or index finger of the left hand pulls it back and releases it quickly. The front teeth are also sometimes used in place of the left hand. The straight ahead shot is the most common, though the over the head shot is sometimes used.
