from William Steig:

"...I ask the questions," snapped Shrek. "What's in your purse?"

"It is not a purse," (the peasant said), "but a pouch. Just some cold chicken parts."

"Give to me, purse boy!" Shrek yelled. "I will warm them with my microwave eyes and eat them. Purse boys don't get to eat!"

As Shrek heated up his meal, the peasant died of seeing Shrek.
