Example 6: Lindsay and Ralph had driven up in the hills west of Palo Alto with several writers from the workshop to a roadhouse called the Alpine Inn, where they all downed pitchers of beer until dark, and then later, when the other writers had one after another drunkenly departed, Lindsay and Ralph pigged out on greasy cheeseburgers whose juice made their fingers shine. Ralph licked Lindsay's fingers clean, as they sat off alone at a picnic table under the trees by the creek bank. (Chuck Kinder, The wife in the story)


Pigs are famous for enthusiastically eating enormous quantities of food. So when a human 'pigs out', he or she is eating much like a pig.
