A fasting Gargantua is basically an unadulterated glutton; to him, living merely delays a big feast. In Rabelais' 16th century French satire, Gargantua fulfills his religious obligations, goes to church, clings to the prayer book, and studies. But his thoughts keep flying to the kitchen.
After attempting to gaze at a book for about 30 minutes, he takes a long pee and sits at the dining table. He begins his breakfast with a few dozen slices of ham, dried ox tail, cervelas or boiled sausage, andouille or smoked pork mixed with pepper and garlic. Then it is time to drink. Bottles of white wine are lined up, followed by piles of meat that make his stomach fit to burst. Gargantua gobbles down the wine. To him, drinking has no limits and bounds. If there is any limit, it is "when the cork of the shoes of him that drinketh swelleth up half a foot high."
