The Great Sunflower Seed Debate

Just last night, Jacob and I had a serious disagreement. You're invited to cast your vote in the comments and resolve this debate.

Jacob: Would you mind getting me some sunflower seeds? I really like them, you know.

Me: I did. I put them in your dish.

Jacob: No you didn’t.

Me: Yes I did.

Jacob: Look at the dish! There’s not a single seed in it!

Me: You took them all and stuffed them in your cheeks.

Jacob: That’s an outrageous lie. There’s nothing in my cheeks at all.

Me: What are you talking about? Your cheeks are bulging with seeds.

Jacob: No they’re not. This is how I always look.

Me: Your cheeks are so stuffed with seeds that you sound like Marlon Brando from The Godfather when you talk.

Jacob: That was a good movie, wasn’t it?

Me: Yeah, but I liked the book better. Wait a minute! You’re changing the subject!

Jacob: You brought up the movie. So will you go get me some seeds already?

Me: No. I just gave you some.

Jacob: I thought we went through all of this already. There are no seeds here at all.

Me: This is getting repetitive. I suggest we leave it to the readers. Deal?

Jacob: Deal.

OK readers, here’s your chance. Did I cheat the little Syrian out of his sunflower seeds or does he have them in his cheeks? Your vote determines whether or not he gets more seeds tonight.

I think the hamster is right. You didn't give him any seeds. He needs many, many more tonight. :-)

I think it's best that you keep stuffing seeds in his face. From my perspective, a fatter hamster is a tastier hamster!

No offense, Jacob! It's just nature's law...

More seeds for Jacob!
Who can resist his cute little face that ISNT stuffed with seeds?

I'm sure you gave the little guy some seeds already and he is hoarding them away.. perhaps a search by the UN in in order?
