Absurd things for thanksgiving

Have you ever heard of a gravy fountain for thanksgiving? I saw one advertised on A Gravy Fountain Would Make Your Life So Much Better | Food & Wine.
It’s a real fountain but filled with gravy. Not sure how I feel about it, I think and old fashioned gravy boat would be neater

This was Moms gravy boat. I have the service for 12 along with soup taurine, gravy boat, coffee service.
Rich doesn’t understand why I don’t use it.
"Well, it’s 80 years old and replacement serving bowls and other pieces are really expensive. Last but not least, Honey. It was Moms…BACK OFF!, Sweetheart :kiss:

Oh my that a gravy fountain sounds so gratuitous :scream: maybe it would work if you have a very very large family gathering of like–50 people! :joy::joy:

That gravy fountain is wild! It would create a big mess trying to get it on the mashed potatoes! I like the Titanic one but I’d worry it would break and spill gravy all over the table in the middle of dinner.

We’ve always had the gravy boat at my place- I can’t imagine the chaos of a gravy fountain! :joy: I’m with @Temujin_Calidius- fill it up with chocolate (or even melted cheese) instead and then count me in! :chocolate_bar: :yum:

I was just thinking that it reminds me of the cheese or chocolate fountains & fondue. Of course, I only ever saw those at large events like a large Wedding type of event. I would never dream of using them for residential/personal home use :joy:

Can you imagine if just 1 person misguided the gravy & then it became a domino effect whether on purpose or not? At that point just hose down the room & start over. :rofl:

It would be like a 6 year old holding a marshmallow in a chocolate fountain without help. Then again…CHOCOLATE…Yummy

Okay, the Titanic one totally cracked me up! :rofl:

Me too. My family is so irreverent they’d make titanic jokes throughout dinner and play with the boat.

My mom would love a gravy fountain! She buries her mashed potatoes in gravy at Thanksgiving dinner or any other dinner throughout the year. :rofl: I’ve told her she should have a separate bowl of gravy and eat it like soup.
