He is very compassioneat, sometimes "dedicating" each of his second, third, etc., helpings to some unknown starving person. He even considers eating food off the floor to be "helping Mother Earth" by "recycling" something that would otherwise go uneaten. "Waste not, want not," he always says. More like "Waste not, waist YES."
