    To the other point in the question, I think it's just fine to eat with a spoon, too, if that's more comfortable. Miss. Tamales are a little messy.

    The Franciscan priest at the St. Xavier del Bac mission in Tucson, a native of Milwaukee stated that the most difficult part of celebrating his first Christmas in Arizona was eating all the tamales .... until he was told to remove the husks before eating.

    President Ford had a similar experience in Texas.
