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? ;)

Poor Darth Vader. He used to be the baddest of the bad guys, the deadliest dad, and the grumpiest force-choker around. Over the years, however, he's been reduced to a cuddly bear, a Hello Kitty parody, and a really excellent dancer.

Adding to the indignity, George Lucas has now added even more "tweaks" to the original Return of the Jedi which has the Internet on FIRE with all of geekdom up in arms. Most lampooned was the addition of a rather entertaining Vader yell, which has been described as "ridiculous," "undignified," and "Dude, it's a yell. What's the big deal?"

Well, never fear, fellow fans! I'm here to help.

In fact, I promise you'll never think that yell is undignified again.

Compared to these.




Oh. Actually, this one's not so bad - since it's plastic and all. I just find it funny to imagine Vader using contractions. Go on, say it in your head. "LUKE I'M YOUR FATHER." No? Just me?


Right, moving on.





 A grateful force-choke to Timbrely, Clare, Julie Anne D., Annie L., Arielle C., and Brenda J. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to watch the Vader TomTom commercial again. That thing cracks. me. up.


"Head" Lines

One of the most tragic aspects of the Great Richmond Earthquake of 2011 was that it overshadowed last weekend's top headline. (The horror!) Lucky for you, though, I'm here to drag it back into the limelight:

"Ferry Runs Aground After Captain Stuck In Toilet."

Now, naturally, a title like that evokes a curious need for details. Thankfully, this article has us covered:

"HELSINKI (Reuters) - A Finnish ferry has run aground while its captain was stuck in the bathroom."


Well. That clears that up.

There were a few minor injuries and, tragically, "tableware was broken," so it's safe to say the captain may be feeling a bit down this week.

We should really get him a cake, don't you think?


Oh, look. FOUND ONE:

"Get some swabs down here! The Cap'n just christened the poop deck!"


Thanks to Michelle B. and Rebekah W. for today's crack wreckporting.
