My experience is that meetings during which people have their lunch
are shorter. You cannot speak up immediately with a full mouth. And
after chewing and swallowing this great bite from this gorgeous raw
beef (not corned beef though that is Argentinian and great too)
sandwich, the chair will have moved to the next item.

Some people might leave the meeting prematurely, since the person next
to her is eating raw tuna fish. (I am guessing tuna is also swimming
in the Argentinian part of the Atlantic.)

It is of paramount importance, Bruce, that the chair does NOT have his
lunch during the meeting. Someone has to do the talking. I am sorry.
