When I was a kid we had a heck of a snowstorm. Dad was gone for some reason and mom had no gas for the plowing tractor. She took a length of garden hose and tried to siphon some out of the car. She ended up swallowing a good amount. Us kids were terribly worried about her. I remember sitting beside the bed on the floor and every time she burped it smelled like gasoline. I'm sure she only got a tablespoon or two, but we were convinced she had downed gallons.
We got enough gas to get out, though. Farm wives are tough birds.
