Well refrain from the obligatory 'let them eat cake' joke because this is actually pretty messed up, apart from its innate ridiculousness.
A Philadelphia man is on the run today after he reportedly shot and severely wounded his friend - and all over a piece of cake!
According to authorities, the two men were in a car together late Monday morning when the passenger began eating a piece of cake that belonged to the driver. The man became so furious that after a heated argument, he got out of his seat and shot his friend in the chest!
The investigator reveals:
"They weren't supposed to be sharing. One was eating the other's food, they got into an argument and 'Bang! Bang!'"
The victim, a 31-year-old, is hospitalized and in critical condition.
The driver has yet to be apprehended.
We know it's rude to take food without asking, but HELLO?! It's a lot more rude to shoot someone in the chest - and a lot more ILLEGAL!
We hope that this guy is caught quickly - if he's willing to fire a weapon over cake, we don't want to know what he's like when he's really upset!
