I don't go to TM pot lucks. But if I brought the pie, I would honor the Raja and take one twelfth of the pie and divide it into eleven pieces and give them all to him and share the rest with the other eleven. However if the raja made the pie and brought it, I would say thank you for a bite of your pie Bevin,do you have any room for one of my Somasas?

There are 12 people at the potluck including yourself. There is a pie cut into 12 equal pieces. One of the people is a Raja and decrees that he gets 11 pieces of the pie while the rest of you have to split one piece. Now how to you feel about that?
