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? ;)

Fall Fail

Last weekend marked the first below-90-degree weather we've had in Orlando in nearly six months! Woohoo!

Which means I can now officially say...

Y'all have GOT to be kidding me.

 

Hey Stephanie A., have any extra-strength Tylenol? 'Cuz these contractions are killing me.

Less Than Punctilious

Continuing my mini series on the wonders of punctuation, let's take a look at what happens when grammar goofs go horribly, seriously funny.

Drat. They're on to me.

 

Because no matter what your efforts, there will be times when you ask for a symbol and get a whole lotta trouble instead.

When a simple slash turns into a case of indecent exposure.

 

For clarity's sake, you might want to mention when a word should be plural.

Don't.

 

In fact, you should never spell anything out. Period.

Especially the actual period. Period.

 

And you know what they say about bad commas, don't you?

That's right: they always come back to bite you.

Thanks to Kristin D., Kristin S., Stephanie A., Doreen L., Kate A. for what I'm calling our "literal" period.
