Buy me a cup of coffee
Did not your progenitor Diogenes once greedily eat up a whole cake at dinner, and in reply to a question say that he was eating some very good bread? And you yourselves, 'greedy dish-lickers of white tunny steaks' — to quote Eubulus once more — never yield place to others, but keep up your din, and refuse to be quiet until somebody tosses you a bit of bread or bone as he would to a pack of dogs.
