"Too many reaching for a piece of cake."

I take that to mean the "eating chocolate cake in a bag" episode from John and Yoko in Vienna at the Sacher Hotel. That chocolate cake would have been a Sacher Torte. Sacher Torte is my dog's name.

Wow, what a cool name for a dog! How do you pronounce that?

I've heard rumors that "Too Many People " was partly a jab at John (but so many songs at the time were interpreted that way, from both Paul and John). It would have sounded better if he had sung:

"Too many people reaching for a chocolate CAKE!!!"

What if the line had been “too many baggin up their chocolate cake!” 

My favorite line in the song is “Too many hungry people losing weight” Paul absolutely rips that vocal line.

^Quality post.  Incidentally, I've long thought "Too many hungry people LOSING WEIGHT!!" was about John and his continuing food issues/drastic weight loss.
