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? ;)

The Far Side of the Wreck

I grew up reading The Far Side. My folks owned several of the books, and I can remember many happy nights curled up with the dry wit and bizarre observations of Mr. Gary Larson. I have no doubt this affected my own somewhat twisted sense of humor, because sometimes - usually after seeing something just a bit off - I'll hear an unmistakably Larson-esque narration start in my head.

You know, kind of like this:

Alone and outnumbered, C3pO did his best to blend in.

 

After a spritz of soda and a quick scrubbing, no one would ever guess at the dark events that transpired that fateful, frosting-filled night.

 

"So I says to him, 'Hey, Rabbit, it's my house and I'll hang a singing fish if I want to. And if you don't like his politics, find yourself another honey pot!'"

 

Bob surveyed his handiwork with pride. If only the Society of Delicate Penmanship and Context-Appropriate Color Coordination could see him now!

 

Buck couldn't help it: he laughed.

Unfortunately, the hunter's hearing turned out to be much better than his eyesight.

The Far Side of Cake, Vol 11 

If Dr. Seuss wrote naughty adult books:

I do not like them
Sam-I-Am
I do not like
Green eggs and wang

Of course, those who knew what to look for could see the early signs of favoritism:

*****

 

...then after he lost the Gieco gig, he did a series of humiliating spots for a local Hot Dog stand.

Days turned to weeks, and weeks to months. Then, one chilly Fall morning, they found them:

10 pristine John Deere hats, carefully arranged around the meadow edges - but not a single tractor in sight.

*****

 

"Loves: nature, hunting his kids, volunteering."

Just another reminder of the importance of proper comma use, my friends.

 

Thanks to Erin H., Amber M., Erin B., Julia K., & Sober (ha!) for setting our sights on the far side.
