3 Baguette

Also from France. I knew I had to add this too. - Userguy44

I am french and I go to school in America, and I find it a bit frustrating when people just joke by telling me if I eat baguettes in France...
Basically this is how baguettes work :
1. You go to the bakery store
2. You buy a baguette
3. When it's time to eat, cut a piece of baguette
4. Use that piece to push your food into your fork/spoon and to sponge the juice from certain meals, then you eat it - KevinBarbeau
