(Newser) – Some people really, really like their macaroni and cheese: Two Florida brothers got into a tussle over missing macaroni and cheese that ended with one stabbing the other in the stomach, say authorities. Randy Zipperer was angrily looking for the missing foodstuff when Edward Zipperer, 47, joined the search—then spilled a beer belonging to his 49-year-old brother, deputies say. That set off an argument inside the Deltona home that led to the older brother stabbing the younger one.

According to the Daytona Beach News-Journal, Randy Zipperer told deputies he didn't mean to hurt his brother, adding he just "poked him a little with the knife." Edward Zipperer had a small puncture wound, and deputies recovered a 6-inch knife with blood on the tip. Randy Zipperer remained in the Volusia County Jail early today. He faces an aggravated battery charge.
