At Wed, 16 Jan 2002 it looks like William R Ward composed:

The answer to that question is easy if you had any younger brothers
or sisters and "thought" you had some of your own ice cream still in
the freezer when you got home. ;>

Sure, the frig has the GID of "family" but the damm ice_cream is
still locked with users ownership.

Better yet, about the "sticky" bit
http://linux.oreillynet.com/lpt/a/linux/lpt/22_06.html where the
frig could be open, ice cream exposed but SAFE !!!
