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? ;)

Draw Something

You guys, I reeeeally want to play Draw Something, but I'm afraid I'll be terrible at it. AND THEN WHAT? I ask you.

So, while I haven't played it yet myself, I did watch my friend Missy do a couple of rounds on her phone. I even helped her guess the answer on one, and then felt all proud and smart and stuff. Which got me to thinking: what if there was a version of Draw Something where you just guessed the answers, and didn't have to actually draw *ANY* thing?

PREEEE-SENTING: WRECK SOMETHING!!

The rules are simple. Just guess what the drawing is. I'll even provide you with the letters for the answer - and no sneaky extra letters, either. The only caveat is that I didn't actually *know* the answer on a couple of them, so in those cases I just made something up. But don't worry; I'm sure you'll still get it.

Ok, let's start with a really easy one, for practice:

DBA PIPHIE EPOUTE

As you can see, using the visual clue it's child's play to unscramble the letters and get "BAD HIPPIE TOUPEE."

 

YOUR TURN!

DEDRAW LULENC

Bonus hint: At least there's no glitter.

 

 

MITE OT ESE HET LOGORUSTI

Bonus hint: Don't cross the streams.

Bonus hint hint: Uh-oh! You're in trouble!

 

 

ORF MOWH ETH ELBL LOLTS

Bonus hint: Clarence would be proud.

 


SFIH KITSCS

Bonus hint: These help the people of Tartarus really hit the sauce.

Bonus hint hint: What? They look like SFIH on KITSCS, ok? I CAN'T HELP WHAT I SEE.

 

 

DIPSREBEW

Bonus hint: If John gets this on his face he screams like a little girl.

 

(NOTE FROM JOHN: NOT TRUE. It's more like a manly banshee.)

(NOTE FROM JEN: I find this substitution...acceptable.)

Actually, we see this kind of thing a lot.
