If you're hungry and a fan of macaroni and cheese, you might understand the thought process of Randy Zipperer.

Or maybe not.

The 49-year-old Florida man is accused of stabbing his brother following an argument the two had over missing macaroni and cheese, the Huffington Post reports.

According to the Daytona Beach News-Journal, a witness told deputies in Volusia County, Florida, that Randy Zipperer and his younger brother, Edward, started arguing over the missing food, and during a search for the noodles, the younger Zipperer knocked over a can of beer his brother had been guzzling.

The spill reportedly increased Zipperer's anger. Authorities say he started waving a knife around his brother and it ended up piercing his stomach.

Randy Zipperer allegedly said, "I poked him a little with the knife, but I didn't mean to."

The incident occurred last Tuesday.

The Huffington Post said he has been charged with aggravated battery and obstructing an officer without violence.

No word on if the mac and cheese was ever found.
