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? ;)

A Seedy Celebration

It's National Watermelon Day.

FINALLY.

And you know what that means, right?

Time to buy a cake.

Do those look like minnows? Just a tad, Pole.

(No, I've never met anyone named "Pole" before, either. But - BUT - John is Polish. So...um...maybe I sometimes affectionately refer to him as "Pole," ok? You don't know. Look, bottom line: just WORK WITH THE PUN, people, ok? Work...with the pun.)

So, how can YOU celebrate National Watermelon Day?

With healthy stuff, of course!

You know, like oil-soaked Cheetos:


Erm. Wrong oil.

Or a traditional "ICU" Melon:

Don't make me call Gallagher, punk.

Or perhaps some exotic plant life:

"FEED ME, SEYMOUR!"


Or, um, vampire ants?

"Vlad! Mortimor! Pull out! Ve've sucked 'er dry!


Teresa, Emily B., Beth, Missy M., & Erica H., I think I'm going to need a "Beware Mortimor the Vampire Ant" t-shirt. Can any of you do something about that?

The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman Head

Last week, we left our courageous cranium in the grips of the Evil Dr. Irving Expector Ant and his band of Belliger Ants. Will our hero escape? Or will the city of Metropolis be overrun with outrageous outlaws most...malignANT? Let's find out, as we continue with...

The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman Head!!!

BUM BUM BUUUUMMM


Ant minion #1: "Haha! We've got you now, Spiderman Head!

Dr. Expector Ant: "Yes, and when we're through with you, there won't be any body for the police to find! Mwahaha! Right, boys?"

Ant minion #2: "Well, obviously, boss. He doesn't *have* a body."

Dr. Expector Ant: "Silence! I kill you!!"

Ant minion #3: "Um. So...is now a good time to ask for a promotion?"

Ant minion #1: "Hey, where'd Spiderman Head go?"



Dr. Expector Ant: What?!? He's escaped?
Noooooooo!!

Meanwhile, our bravely balancing brain bowl bounced his way to freedom!

"My trusty spider-bot ought to crash their party. Ha! So long, ignorANTS!"


With the persistent pest population handled, Spiderman Head heads home for some much-needed family time:

"G'nite, Mom, g'nite, Dad!"

"Goodnight, Son."

"G'nite, Uncle Sherb!

"Uncle Sherb?

"Da-aad! I think we brought the football in instead of Uncle Sherb again."

"Don't worry, son, we'll get him out of the yard in the morning."

Little did Spiderman Head know that his brother Sherb was NOT in the yard, but rather in the grips of the maniacal madman, Monochromatic Max!

"Aaaauuugh!! Help me, Spiderman Head!"

Will our noteworthy noggin' notice his brother's absence in time?!? Or will Uncle Sherb be doomed to a colorless demise?

Tune in next week for the thrilling continuation of...

The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman Head!!

Thanks to Wreckporters Tim H., Stephanie Z., Margaret R., Carolina D., & Amy H. for helping me get ahead.

Update from john: Spiderman Head is the Amazing Spider-Man's nephew. In an act of teenage angst, he de-hyphenated his name and moved to Metropolis where he currently works with Super-Man Head.
