To eat quickly and with complete disregard of grace and social etiquette.
Word Origin: In the Shakespearian era, the first ever eating contest took place. What led to the eating contest is unknown; however, it has been noted that William Shakespeare attended and remarked "In sooth, I hope these wily contestants do not ingest their cravats."
Also derived from this incident was the word craving.
Johnny: Scarf those crepes down Jesus!
Jesus: I've been craving crepes continuously for centuries since my conception.
