... at least until Monday's post. :)
This is why I love Halloween, my dear wreckies: the normal boundaries of sanity need not apply.
"I was looking at a mud puddle, and it spoke to me, and it said, 'Give me the face of a hippie, man. Plus a crap ton of edible glitter and plastic eyeballs.' So I did."
Willem Dafoe after a bender?
Of course wreckerators love them some plastic flotsam at the best of times, but for Halloween they really pull out ALL THE STOPS.
IT'S A TRAP.
A Tootsie Trap.
Which sounds kind of delicious, but no.
What's got four plastic feet, plastic eyes, a plastic hat, and vaguely disconcerting icing "hair" sprouting out of a purple brick?
I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IS THIS.
I think this is supposed to be a vampire, but all I see is a Muppet who had too much whip cream on his hot cocoa. D'awww.
Uh-oh, we've veered dangerously into "cute" territory.
I CAN FIX THAT.
Whew! Close one.
And now, GHOST BOOBIES:
I take comfort in knowing we're all equally traumatized here.
A lot of times people ask me, "Hey, Jen, are there black olives on those Halloween cupcakes?!"
And my answer is always the same: "What, next to the bleeding gummi teeth? I have no idea."
True story, bra. TRUE STORY.
(Except for the part about people talking to me. AHAHAHAH[sob].)
Sometimes a baker can't decide if she wants to make a ghost or a jack-o-lantern.
Other times she just slaps a bunch of crappily iced cupcakes together, goes to lunch, and gets paid the same anyway.
I'm not saying wreckerators are lazy around Halloween, of course, I'm just saying that... uh... hang on. [whispering off camera to unseen informant] They're selling WHAT now??
YOU LAZY BASTARDS.
Oh, hey, THERE's the face that will haunt my nightmares tonight:
I was wondering when that would show up.
And finally, POD BABY:
Congratulations, bakers. I am officially speechless.
Thanks to Anony M., Ronald C., Melissa M., Alana G., Jessica M., Laura S., Ana K., Karra A., Lea B., Andrea O., Vette, & Anony M., who think pod babies look a lot like Mandrake Roots wrapped in old banana peels.
