At first I was like, "Cut him some slack, his brother ate his peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Who hasn't threatened somebody with a knife for that before?" But later in the article I read that his brother was mad just because he thought his brother ate too many PB&J's. Wow. Obviously the guy's unstable and needs to be locked up.

After reading the "title", I expected to be reading about how men got into a fight over a PB&J sandwich. Maybe how there was one left and they had both wanted it or something and then one of them pulled a knife on the other because the other took it. However, as usual with the Strib, I had to read the whole article to see the truth and actuality of the story. The story wasn't really about a fight over a sandwich, but the knife was pulled once the dispute escalated into more than just the sandwich resulting in a fight about laziness and over-eating.

Wow, maybe he was stoned? laziness and over eating is a cause of that..Some people just get worked up over the dumbest stuff. I onced witnessed my college friends argue over some gatorade bottles and nearly fist faught. Another person I know got angry over cold fries and cussed the Mcdonald's worker out and demanded a fresh batch. People just get angry I guess. lol
