Have Your Cake And Eat It by loomx Have Your Cake And Eat It by loomx
The old saying "you can't have your cake and eat it" often confused me as a youngster. This comic strip reflects that confusion with Derpy, unfortunately, being the one confused by the proverb.

All she wants is a muffin...

(Background by RusselH [link])

There is now a follow-up to this comic ([link]). Thanks for all the comments, favourites, etc. :)

I've never understood that old saying before, either. I mean, I think it's perfectly reasonable to want to eat a cake that you have; there's not much else you can do with it.

You know, I never understood that saying. What the hell else are you supposed to do with a cake?

I think it just means you can't have two things that conflict with each other. You can have cake, or you can eat it. If you eat it you no longer have it, and if you hold on to it, you aren't eating it.

If she eats her muffin, she won't have a muffin anymore. :`(

That's actually one way to look at it, I suppose.
