I'm with ya, Shponka.

"One of the pupils who had been entrusted to his care and who was anxious to get him to put scit against his name in the class register for some homework he had not even attempted to do, brought a pancake soaked in butter into the class one day. Though Shponka was very keen on meting out justice, he happened to be very hungry that day and the temptation proved too strong for him."
--"Ivan Fyodorovich Shponka and His Aunt," Nicolai Gogol
