Have you seen the latest wreckage to hit the news?
See, apparently a bride named Cecilia ordered this for her wedding:
And got this instead:
Of course, bridal tears like this are nothing new, but Cecilia's next move was: she decided to sell her wreck on ebay. She later said it was only a joke, but there were still several bids in by the time she cancelled the auction. (I like to think the bidders planned to use it as a divorce cake, because the irony would be delicious.)
While I'm always glad to see a bride with a sense of humor, the fact remains that this is a tragedy, and one which no doubt has us all thinking the same thing:
A tire cake for a wedding? Really?
Still, it could have been worse. Cecilia could have asked for her tires monster-truck sized. And pink.
There's a "making donuts in the parking lot" joke in here SOMEWHERE, I just know it.
Granted, that cake is the figurative Beverly Hills to Cecilia's Skid Row (see what I did there?), but take heart, Cecilia:
At least yours didn't have a real hubcap on it.

No, yeah, yours is still worse, Cecilia. Sorry.
Thanks to all eleventy billion of you who sent in that first wreck via The Huffington Post, and also to Lisa H. and Sommer T., who recommend the side of the road at the downtown overpass for primo free wedding cake toppers.
