The pig trough!!
Had a full day of sessions at the conference yesterday in Philly. Once the sessions were over at around 6 pm, they had a reception just outside the room where the sessions were being held. They had a table set up in the middle with food. Once those doors were opened releasing the people from the session, they just attacked the table of food. I compare it to pigs being released to feed on the trough. It was pretty funny...just picture all these people attacking this table. It lasted about 10-15 minutes, during that time the food was demolished, then as if the group was working uniformly, they started dissipating, to reveal a table with some scraps of food left, damaged as if it was attacked by a packs of wolves.
What is it with a table of free food, that brings out our inner animal? It felt like a cartoon, and all I could picture is a group of pigs released for feeding time, and they all rush to the table or trough and just go to town on it.
