Does Poison protect your other Keepers from being eaten by *your* Keepers?

I believe the ruling on this was that, yes, your Poisonous Bears CANNOT eat your Poisonous Fishes (for example). We'd played it the other way for a while, but then decided that it was more consistent with other similar cards in Fluxx. For example, if you have The Brain and The Television, you can't win with Brain No TV just because you control them both and decide you've "turned the TV off" as it were.

Anyhow. That's the ruling from Andy. If you want to be able to have your keepers eat each other, you've got to manage to trash Poison if you have it.

The box says "Having Poison protects your Keepers from being eaten by
other players!"  The Poison card itself simply says "Once in play, Poison
protects your other Keepers from being eaten."
