What's a Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it. A Wreck is not necessarily a poorly-made cake; it's simply one I find funny, for any of a number of reasons. Anyone who has ever smeared frosting on a baked good has made a Wreck at one time or another, so I'm not here to vilify decorators: Cake Wrecks is just about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places.

Now, don't you have a photo you want to send me? ;)

Kids These Days

Education can never start too early. Which is why I, for one, am happy to see all the things kids are learning from their birthday cakes. You know, things like....

...friendly hand gestures:

 

And where Spider-Man's web comes from:

Watch it go!

 

Then there are the helpful anatomy lessons:

I think it's safe to say that Bailey really, REALLY enjoyed his Bar Mitzvah party.

 

Not to mention the legal drinking age:

Hint: that's not it.


And perhaps the best life lesson of all: one of the hazards of mixing boobs with beer:

Hey, it could be worse. You could be on 16 And Pregnant and be rewarded for your questionable life choices with money and fame.

There. Don't you feel better now?

 

Thanks to Sarah G., Anony M., Tanya G., M.M., and Jenae B. for the education.

I Got Your Back, PA

An Open Letter to the Internet from the Residents of Southern Pennsylvania

 

Dear Internet,

What did we ever do to you?

We are a region of good, decent, hard-working Americans and prized rutabaga growers* who always try to do right by our fellow man.

And how do you repay us? By staging protests! By telling the government to shelve us! By blocking our favorite cute cat picture websites with big "STOP SOPA" signs!

It's enough to make us think you don't like the area with the world's most colorful collection of soap shavings.*

Motto*: "It's good clean fun!"

 

Did you know your underwear was probably made with cotton from OUR* cotton fields?

 

 

And did you know that our official* tri-county* flower*, the Dryerious Lintitude*, has been hailed* by the scientific community* as a "marvel of nature?"*

That's right: a MARVEL OF NATURE*. Just try and stop THAT, internet.

 

Look, we SOPA residents are reasonable people. We don't want to hold a grudge over some obvious misunderstanding - and already you've given us a hip new acronym for next year's tourism brochures!

So what do you say we start fresh? We'll forget this whole "down with SOPA" business, and YOU can come visit the birthplace of Hannah Montana*!

It's a win-win!

 

*Sorry, Wikipedia was down yesterday.

Thanks to Michael S., Justin D., Anna D., & Karyn D. for helping me drag out a joke for five whole wrecks. Next I'll be writing** a letter on behalf of People In Pennsylvania - stay tuned!

**Just kidding. I'll make John do it.
