Example: Sit down, have a beer, and let's chew the fat.
Origin: The Inuit (different from Eskimos) used to chew on pieces of whale blubber almost like chewing gum. The blubber took quite a while to dissolve, so it just sort of helped pass the time while they were doing something else. Some other cultures may have used bacon fat in a similar way.
