Feeding picky eaters can be a pain.

Just ask Lyndel Toppin's fiancée, whose middle finger was almost chopped off when Toppin allegedly attacked her with a kitchen knife, according to Upper Darby police.

The reason for the assault, cops say, was a poorly made meatball sandwich. Specifically, the cheese placement was all wrong, which infuriated Toppin. "That was the catalyst," police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said.

The 44-year-old woman, whom cops did not identify, was preparing dinner last week in her Kingston Road home when Toppin "became enraged due to the victim not placing cheese on his hoagie roll correctly," according to the arrest affidavit.

Toppin grabbed a knife from the other room and slashed her finger, causing a deep laceration, she told police at Delaware County Memorial Hospital, where she received 23 stitches to close the gash.

Not Florida.

DEAR GOD YES!! :eek: You need to know when the cheese should be on top - when it should be on bottom - when it should touch the bread - when it should not touch the bread . . . .

Wow. They totally did not cover this in the Home Ec portion of 4H. I'm surprised I'm still alive.

you'd better keep him away from any large gatherings of men where he might get filled in on what he is entitled to by right of gender! ;)

Some men should not fixate on getting what they're entitled to, but should be grateful they don't get what they deserve. :p

There's a "cut the cheese" joke in there somewhere.
