    Are sure that age 28 and 27, not 8 and 7.

    They should have found something better than canned beef ravioli to fight over.

    This shows a total lack of taste and good raising.

    I wonder who wound up with the $2000 can of ravioli, or was it taken for evidence?

    Living in a house with a whole bunch of teenage boys, I can understand how this might happen... between young teenagers.

    But 27 and 28 years old?? Dear Lord, please let mine finish growing up before then ...

    Knowing you a wee bit, I'd guess they will!

What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

    I bet it was the Chef Boyardee Overstuffed. That might just be worth throwing my brother a beating if it was the last can in the pantry.

    Edit: Oh! if there was pepperoni and mazzerella cheese handy...
    that's all I'm sayin...

    I remember reading a similar story awhile back.
    2 brothers got into a major brouhaha over a bowl of soup.
    The older was so hungry, he sold his inheritance for that bowl of soup (must have been GOOD soup!).

    Those two boys didn't speak to each other for 20 years.
    Could have been bad, but they eventually made up.

    Great story. VERY old set of circumstances.

    I remember seeing three skinny kids scuffling over a pan of cold pork and beans that had roaches scurrying around on it... Now that's a sad sight.

    Well, if it's Chef Boyardee (sp?) ravioli then they both have to be mentally deranged for fighting over a can of that garbage.

    Too bad the ravioli took the rap for a lifetime of bad blood between the guys.

    I have identical twin boys, age 22, who can barely be civil with each other. It happens.

    miklcolt45, I might have read that same story somewhere too. But where?

    A very old story indeed!
