Suppose You Have a Pie

While driving the Bigger Sister to school this morning after I had voted, I tried to explain the election.

Suppose you have a pie. Further suppose that you have to give the whole pie either to someone you like, or to someone you don’t. Who do you give it to?

My friend.

Now what if you had to choose between giving the pie to someone you don’t like or someone else you don’t like?

I’d keep it, and eat it.

Yeah, I’d keep it and eat it too, but that wasn’t on the ballot.
