    I ate 22 kishkes once. Live on the john for about a week afterward. That much chicken fat has got to be dangerous.

    I think you can eat all of the gravy safely.

    And I mean all of it.

    And while it seemed at the time that after this five of them polished off a third more, that was mainly due to vision problems and poor recollection.

    but only one fourth of them had half a recollection!

    While actively hiking day-after-day, you could probably drink gravy instead of water and be OK. However, my mid-section is testimony to not trying this at home. YMMV

    Yeah, but those thighs feel pretty good. I'll never forget that no matter how many times you bite my toes.

    CHOMP Can you still recall? Careful, I'll send you to DC to learn the delicate art of not recalling.

    Before anybody gets the idea that the female dino has been frolicking with someone other than the male dino, I let several people at the April Fool's bash feel the hole in the muscles of my thigh and the muscle that has recently started working part of the time.

    Ummm, sausage gravy, red-eye gravy, tomato gravy, pork gravy, beef gravy, chicken gravy, turkey gravy, and many more, ummmm, there's quite a selection. Gravy is real food for real people. I'll bring the biscuits and grits.

    Well, I think it depends on the kind of gravy.

    Are we talking about the gravy from "biscuits and gravy"? I am guessing perhaps 1 qt before your arteries just cease to let blood through.

    Gravy made from turkey? I think there is more leeway.

    The old timers from my former neck of the woods used to (still call?) tomato sauce with sausage/meatballs "gravy" as well. Depends on the amount of garlic used for the amount of gravy a person can safely consume.

    Of course ALL the above depends upon such factors as weight, muscle to fat ratio and overall health of the person.
