Margie: Edna, look at this. Your picture is in today's newspaper. Oh dear, they got your birthdate wrong. You weren't born on November 2nd.
Edna: Oh, very funny Margie. You know, one of us in this conversation got sick recently from eating too many teacakes, and it wasn't me. So I think you'd best check in the mirror if you want to see the real cookie monster.
Margie: Edna, I didn't say Cake Monster. Good grief! It describes you right here:
"can (and often does) consume anything and everything, from apples and pie to letters, flatware, and hubcaps."
That's you sister.
Edna: Margie, you're so unattractive when you're insulting. Besides, you know I eat like a bird. I inherited my delicate constitution from Mama's side of the family. You're the one who eats like a goat. I once saw you eat an entire cupcake, wrapper and all, without even blinking.
Margie: Edna, you are so funny when you lie. Delicate constitution my eye. You eat like a pig. Is a pig a bird?
I may have eaten a cupcake but I don't eat 2 funnel cakes in one sitting like you do.
Edna: Margie, I only ever did that once, and that was because you refused to eat the funnel cake I'd bought you. I just didn't want it to go to waste.
I'm getting hungry, I'm going to go make some brownies. And I don't plan on sharing.
