I let him work for a pack of Ramen, water to cook it with, and the power to do so. Then, when all the work is done, I'll take it and feed it to the dogs that laid in the back room doing nothing and explain to him that it's for the greater good. Next, when he decides to go hunting for some dinner, I'll give him a butter knife because guns are bad. When he finally kills something with the knife, I'll outlaw the knife and say he got his dinner illegally, and I'll just destroy the meat.
And then the kicker: I'll keep doing it for a while, and sure his feelings will get hurt.. but in the end, when I invite him back for dinner he'll come running back because he thinks I'll do something different the second time around.
(Just kidding. Yeah, that was a bitter political metaphor. In all reality, I would cook some bad ass baby back ribs, cook up some homegrown veggies, get some beer from a friend that makes it and feed him a good meal. A big enough meal to really get to know him...)
