    suppose that cake was for the church ladies’ group get-together?

    I usually start at the corner, but sometimes it’s hard to start there, especially when it’s a bit overcooked. Starting in the middle may make sense.

    While I completely disagree with Opal’s ridiculous stance in the 1st panel, what kind of a selfish monster cuts a square out of the middle of the cake?!

    Whoever cut the square out of the cake(wonder who?), that was simply rude and uncalled for. Wonder how a perfect square was removed from the center.

    Were I to take a piece of cake like that it wouldn’t be, “Then the fight started.” It would be, “And then he died.”

    Opal could fill The Library of Congress with a list of things Earl does to tick her off.

    Grrrrr! My husband does this. He cuts a tomato in such a way that he gets the fattest middle slice and I get the edges. Same thing with bread. It would be just like him to eat the middle piece in a cake pan.

    I generally would not just take the first piece and especially not until my wife has partly cut the cake for the first few slices.

    Most people like an edge piece. Earl is the exception, yet I cannot see how he puts up with Opal’s CONSTANT nagging and complaining.

    I’ll take an edge piece most every time. A corner even better. Just let some of the mandatory ice cream melt into it somewhere along the line. Now, after breakfast…

    Do you mean you don’t like the way she’s standing, or her opinion of Earl? Either one works for me. I don’t like Opal, but her sister’s okay.

    Earl never said the list is about her. He is allowed to make his own list and she should mind her own business.

    Wonder if he does that pentagram thing with pizzas, where instead of cutting wedges that meet at the center, you get five slices for the points, five for the gaps between the points, and one five-sided piece from the middle of the pie.

    My dad and my younger brother are both guilty of cutting “keyholes” out of the middle of the cake or brownies, lol (oh, and my brother likes to cut irregular/diagonal pieces)
