Isn’t the expression,
Have your cake and eat it too?
Or in the hood
You can’t have your cake and eat it too!
Are you the Unabomber# who was tracked down based partly on his misquote of this quote!?
The Meaning of the expression:
Well. To do or get two good things at the same time, especially things that are not usually possible to have together:
I worked at home so I could raise my family and still earn money.
I guess I wanted to have my cake and eat it too. But in my case, I did eat my cake and have it too!
# Unabomber: Theodore John Kaczynski, also known as the Unabomber, was an American domestic terrorist, former mathematics professor, and anarchist author. A mathematics prodigy, he abandoned an academic career in 1969 to pursue a primitive lifestyle. Between 1978 and 1995, he killed three people and injured 23 others in an attempt to start a revolution by conducting a nationwide bombing campaign targeting people involved with modern technology. In conjunction, he issued a social critique opposing industrialization while advocating a nature-centered form of anarchism.
The bombs were sent through the mail. You just don’t mess with the U.S.Postal Service and expect to get away with it!
