“the more you try to have your cake and eat it too, the crumbier it gets”
pearl baptist church, iron station, north carolina’s_cake_and_eat_it_too says:
“The reversal of this expression helped in the identification of the Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski. In the Unabomber’s “Manifesto”, it was written and signed “…you can’t eat your cake and have it too. To gain one thing you have to sacrifice another.” His brother David Kaczynski was able to identify Ted after reading the “Manifesto”. Ted and their mother both used the more accurate but older and less popular use of the phrase.”

i’m with the unabomber, it makes more sense to me saying “you can’t eat your cake and have it too.” either way, it’s crumby, and i want both.
