I don't really have any bib ideas, but I'd love to commiserate with you, also! I can't even begin to count the number of times I've come home and taken my bra off after a movie and had half the tub of popcorn fall on the floor.
My mom calls this "saving some for later." She also calls her cleavage her "other purse" because of all the things she can keep in there (I once saw her pull out a cell phone, her drivers license, $20, and a stick of gum).
I think the less-endowed drop food, too, but it keeps falling down into their laps onto the inconspicuous napkins they have placed there. Unfotunately, tucking a napkin into the collar of your shirt is not inconspicuous. So for us, it falls unto (or more often for me at least, IN TO) our shirts.
I think the scarf-like idea is the best. I'd be careful not to make it TOO pretty, because then you'd feel guilty for dirtying it up.
