Eat Your Cake and Have It Too!

What!?

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!
