Seriously, don't tempt people with something they can't have, for any definition of "can't". It's just not a nice thing to do.

Of course, one rarely has any control over people's temptations, how they respond to stimuli... and, for that matter, people won't always tell you when they "can't" do something.

(Tues afternoon, INT: EB and JH's place, EB, JH and MH are all at the table, eating sandwiches)

JH: ...but when you brine your own pork belly, you can put whatever you want in there. You taste that kick? That's not a sauce. The bacon itself is ever so slightly spicy.
EB: Mmm yeah, I wondered what that was. That is so good.
JH: And I knew this was going to be sandwich bacon, so I dialed the deli slicer as thin as it would go, to maximize the crispiness...
MH (biting fist): Agh, foul heathen! Tempting a poor innocent vegan with something she can't have!
JH: Well, turnabout is fair play, isn't it?
MH: Hey now, I never tempted you with something you couldn't have. You could have this any time you wanted.
JH: Except for my own committment to a personal standard of behaviour, right?
MH: Alright, alright, fair comparison. My pussy is spicy bacon.
EB: Aaaaand I don't think I want this sandwich any more.
