Greed is a Sin

And Here is the Proof

When you are in a Supermarket and you come across free samples, it is cool to try one. But if you are greedy and take a second sample you might have your comeuppance. For example, if you are standing in line at Wholefoods and you notice some organic, natural jelly beans, then take a little handful and savour them. But if you enjoy them too much and go back for seconds, the omnipresent, all-knowing Greedmeister will know what you are up to and you will be punished. You might even lose part of one of your teeth in the process. Crunchy jelly beans aren't so great, believe me.

    Ouch! The last time I lost part of a tooth was to a really tasty slice of pizza. Apparently I bit down on the red pepper flakes the wrong way.

    Starting early on your easter eggs, I gather. My last cracked tooth was on a cracker jack, needed a crown for that one, that was a pretty expensive bite. Good luck with the dentist!

    You broke your tooth on a JELLYBEAN? My dear, it must be the slow rotting from too much champagne that is the real culprit.h

    A Jellybean? I hope it was delicious.

    Oh NOooooo!

    Ouch!

    I call that "Instant Karma Equalization", but it seems like Karma got the better of that deal in this case.

    My preferred sins are gluttony, lust and sloth. They make for the best weekends. I'll consider myself warned on the greed front. Sorry about the tooth, poor dear.
