Cookbook author Chrissy Teigen and judge of NBC's Bring the Funny served up some giggles this week while going through airport security.

The Transportation Security Administration has strict rules when it comes to allowable food items, and keeping track of what can or can't be packed in a carry-on is daunting for the casual jet setter.

So what about gravy?


The 33-year-old model wondered if airport security would give a thumbs up for her cold gravy to travel with her.

While filming her traveling companion tilting the Tupperware with the substance in question, Teigen asked:

"Is it a liquid? Or is it a gel? Or is it gravy in a solid form?"

Her followers were concerned about why she was smuggling a whole container of the good stuff.


One suggested she dump the contents into a diaper to ensure safe passage.

Twitter contestants weighed in based on past experiences or word on the street.



Did the gloopy sauce make it on board?

Over 36,000 people responded to Teigen's online poll and a good majority voted, "Yes! It wasn't a liquid."

Permission was contingent upon one thing, and it's a bit of a mush.





Here's a tip for those traveling with their own nosh.

TSA spokeswoman Jenny Burke told USA Today:

"The general rule of thumb is that if you can spill it, spread it, spray it, pump it or pour it, then it should go into a checked bag. Liquids in carry-on bags must follow the 3-1-1 liquids rule."

The TSA's website says gravy is allowed as long as it's less than 3.4 ounces, but Burke added that the ultimate decision rests on the TSA officer on whether or not food items can pass through the checkpoint.

Just pass the gravy, please.

People Divulge The Scariest Thing That's Ever Happened To Them

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.
