My parents never told me any real lies about what I was eating but they said I should eat everything because there were starving children in China. Then wee little Inky's brain went into overdrive.
China has millions of people.
If we went to war even a malnourished China we'd lose unless we nuked 'em.
However, every grain of food I eat doesn't go to China!
Therefore the President will have to give me a medal! I just prevented World War III.
If guilt was the intent it failed.
