MUNCIE – A dispute over “the last rib” at a family barbecue ended with one Muncie woman stabbing another in the eye with a fork, police said. Sabrina A. Davis, 45, 2005 N. Turner St., was arrested Sunday night on a preliminary charge of criminal recklessness. According to an affidavit, Davis was a guest at another family’s gathering in the 2200 block of North Turner Street when the homeowner’s daughter became upset over Davis “taking the last rib from the kitchen.” That woman confronted Davis “about taking all the food,” and told officer Amy Kesler that Davis responding by stabbing her in the left eye with a fork she had been using “to take meat from a pan.” The victim had “at least two small lacerations on her left eyelid,” Kesler wrote, and her eye was “swollen and bloodshot.”

No, but really. If you told your friend to close their eyes, picture a lady who would ram a fork into another person’s eye during a fight over the last BBQ rib, your friend would picture that person. Try it out. While they’re imagining what the person looks like, hand them a pencil and make them draw what they see in their head. I 150% guarantee they’ll sketch a picture of that lady. Just an impossibly round face and the angry look of somebody who will fight to the death over that last rib. She’ll fight tooth and nail for it. Remember the Eminem lyric where he says, “Or we can scream ‘I just don’t give a fuck’ and see who means it”? That lady means it. That’s the type of person Eminem was talking about. Right there. In the flesh.
PS- Sneaky funniest part is that she was a guest at the person’s house. What’s the etiquette there? Pretty sure the guest is always right and the guest always gets the last rib. So it’s kind of the other person’s fault for getting a fork shoved in her eye ball. Gotta follow the rules.
