Biblical tradition holds that God made woman from one of Adam’s ribs…well, that’s one story of several, anyway.  Biologically, women do have one more rib than men, so bare that in mind for this story.

A woman in Muncie, IN was arrested Sunday night after stabbing another woman in the eye over the last rib at a barbecue.  45-year-old Sabrina Davis attended the neighborhood gathering with family and friends, where a dispute broke out when the victim of the stabbing accused Davis of taking all the food.  Davis had apparently taken the last rib from the kitchen, and when confronted, stabbed the victim in the eye with a fork.  Davis maintains the victim pulled a knife on her, and that she only acted in self defense.  The victim was treated at a local hospital and released.

A woman who attended the party called the incident “embarrassing.”  A neighbor, amused by the whole affair said “it was just so ridiculous. … Barbecue’s good and all that, but it’s not worth sticking somebody in the eye with a fork, you know?”

No word on whether the victim intends to press charges.
