A dispute over a stolen meatball turned into a workplace stabbing this week, the Baltimore Sun reports.

Police say the unnamed Fallston, MD office—which probably requested anonymity due to shame over its lax refrigerator policies—turned into a crime scene when a 36-year-old man who should have known better allegedly stole a meatball out of his colleague's lunch.

But the man's hungry 31-year-old victim quickly became the aggressor, allegedly stabbing his good-for-nothing, lunch-stealing co-worker in the arm. Who's the meatball now, he maybe shouted as he fled the scene.

It's not clear whether he was apprehended, or what became of the remaining meatballs, but police say the stabbing victim has recovered from his injuries and charges are pending.
