Meaning: To engage in frivolous conversation.

This  tradition comes from the Inuit  who used to chew whale blubber like bubble gum. It took a long time for the blubber to dissolve, so it really helped pass the time. There’s another theory that believes the origin came from sailors who were forced to chew salt pork when supplies were low. Either way, to chew the fat means to engage in conversation just to pass the time.

  7. Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite
    justification appeared to be on the web the simplest
    thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get
    annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly don’t know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the
    whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
