gormandize

gormandize \ GAWR-muhn-dahyz \ , verb;
1. To eat greedily or ravenously.

Quotes:

Charley swallows a great gulp of tea in token of submission, and so disperses the Druidical ruins that Miss Smallweed charges her not to gormandize, which, “in you girls,” she observes, is disgusting.
— Charles Dickens, Bleak house


Origin:
Gormandize evolves into a verb from the French verb gourmandise from the familiar gourmand.
This sketch was inspired by a vintage image I saw in “Food & Drink” from Dover books. The original had the sausages with fork and wine bottle hanging on the branches. I added a few items of my own to bring the image up to date. Who thinks of this stuff? That original vintage image was just too funny.
