    SINCE I AM FEELING HUNGRY BY THE END OF THE DAY, I WANT TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT FOOD.
    12:37

    Since I am feeling hungry by the end of the day, I want to talk to you about food.

    There are many slang expressions about it. “Food” itself has 2 synonyms: chow and grub, which are both close to our Russian word жратва. Hence the word chowhound, meaning a person who eats too much.
    Here are some verbs meaning more or less the same as eat:
    There is a funny idiom, referring evidently to horses — to put on the feedbag, which also means to eat.
    To chow down
    Or simply to down — are relatively neutral synonyms of “eat”.
    Dig in means start eating.
    Here are more emotional verbs, that have slight additional coloring:
    To scarf up/To pig out/To mack out all mean to eat greedily, or to eat too much.
    To wolf something down or to shovel it in means to eat very quickly.
    And, at last, another idiom — feed your face!

    Here are some snippets of dialogues:
    I’m starving! Shall we chow down on some pizza?
    — OK, but let’s first see what sort of grub they got here.

    — Hey, don’t look at me like that. Do you mean you’re ready to feed your face again?

    — Shall we wolf down some of these egg rolls?
    — I bet I can down about four.

    — Don’t pig out on that junk. I’d rather mack out on your Mom’s chili tonight.

    — Look at that guy scarfing up that spaghetti. What a chowhound. I’ve never seen anyone shovel it in like that.

    — Let’s drop in at MacDonald’s!
    — Let’s not pig out on this junk. I’d rather mack out on your Mom’s chili tonight!

    — Don’t dig in yet, I think I forgot my wallet.
    NOW — ON YOUR OWN! USE IT AND MAKE YOUR TEACHERS HAPPY. OR MAD!
