I scream, you scream, I scream again because you ate all my ice cream! People can be pretty awful about food: protect your own supply while making an effort to get the next guy's share. This is like a child who sticks a dirty finger into the last jelly doughnut. Or the family member who serves himself more food than he'll eat and puts pepper all over it so no one else will want it. I'm sure there is someone in your family who has a technique for consuming more than his share, with a perfectly logical explanation. This is the latest comic from Chris Hallbeck at Maximumble.
