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.

There's no shortage of excellent horror fiction out there. Recently I read The Terror by Dan Simmons and can't remember the last time I felt that claustrophobic and nervous. But I am also a fan of quite a few classics. Are there any other horror books that capture grief as effectively as Stephen King's Pet Sematary? What other book evokes folk horror as beautifully as Thomas Tryon's Harvest Home? Let's not forget this wonderful classic: The Haunting of Hill House. I could rave about that one (and Shirley Jackson) for days. All of these books left their mark on me and yes, I'd include them on a list (if I were to make one) of some of the scariest books I've read.

People had their own opinions to share––and books to recommend––after Redditor Tylerisdumber asked the online community,

"What's the scariest book you've ever read?"

Today's the day to get the answers you didn't know you needed.
