  • Who ran on over to Molly. "I ate your pasta, not me." Molly was confused. "What?" "What never entered the picture here." "Wait wha--" Now the office break room crowd revealed themselves. Mr. What. Ms. I. Mr. Me. And Dr. Who. Great. Everyone's names made accusations confusing.

  • Molly sat down at the break room table, drawing a diagram of every worker in the office, their names, & their relation to her lunch. "Oh," she said, "I get it now. Ms. I ate my pasta. Well, well, Eva I, my revenge will be sweet." She rubbed her hands together in mischievous glee.

  • She had misheard the old saying as “revenge is a dish best served sweet”. She went out and bought 5 liters of molasses, 10 kilograms of confectioners sugar, and a barrel of jolly rancher candies. Time to make a Sugar Shock.

  • Our waiter approached and asked if anyone would like dessert. We glanced nervously at our menus. Suddenly our host pulled a concealed ripcord, dumping a sticky concoction on all of us. "Take that!" she screamed. "Whoever ate my pasta while I wasn't looking will be stuck forever!"
