Are you gonna eat that, though?

WE ALL KNOW that one person with a truly astonishing appetite.

These people can come in all shapes and sizes, but one thing never changes – they are always, always hungry.

1. “Are you going to eat that?” is not in fact a rude question

It’s just where your eyes naturally go. And can we have an M&M, if there’s one going spare? Cheers.

5. 11am and 3pm are the worst times of the day

11am: You’re starving. Breakfast was ages ago, but it’s too early for lunch.
3pm: You’re starving. Lunch seems like it never happened, but you polished off all your snacks at 11am.

All I can eat, yeah? JUST YOU WAIT.

8. “Do you want the last one?” is said purely out of courtesy

A true friend knows that you have no real intention of parting with the last slice of pizza, and lets you at it.

9. Your hand is always in the snack bowl

It’s hard to recall a time when we were truly vanquished by a meal. Probably never.
