Classmate: “I know but I don’t want to eat it. I want you to throw at my face.”

Me: “I can’t do that. I mean, that’s wasting food. Plus, it’ll hurt, which is why we used just some whipped cream and plates.”

Classmate: “But won’t I get paid? That guy earlier got hit in the face since he volunteered. I want to do that.”

Classmate: “Uh, okay… but can I still get hit in the face with that cake?”

Me: “…”
