A Bit of Trivia on Boodle Fight

A boodle fight is a meal that dispenses with cutlery and dishes. Diners instead practice kamayan, Filipino for “eating with the hands”. The food is placed on top of a long banana leaf-lined trestle table and in the true military practice, diners do not sit in chairs but instead stand shoulder to shoulder in a line on both sides of the table.

A senior officer or enlisted personnel then utters the traditional command for the boodle fight to begin:

“Ready on the left,
Ready on the right,
Commence boodle fight!”
