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? ;)

Summer Poetry Slam

What can I say, these wreck bring out the poet in me.
Or maybe I've had too much sun today.


He slides along,
What's with
The balloons?




The Earth cries out from her festering
toxic grave:




Is it the blue sky that beckons?
Is it the ocean waves, you reckon?



Those flip-flops
Could kill
Either one of us



A gaping tidal wave roars and rushes
What is this
Surfing for ants?






Bound in free-floating friendship
Bound to live and love
And try again
Oh, look
More balloons

Big Bangs

Note: Today's post contains a word that starts with "p" and rhymes with "Venus." Parents, please parent accordingly.


Before you head out to stock up on fireworks this weekend, here's a handy tip from the folks over at Lamebook:

Perhaps I should rephrase that.

(Also: ow.)


What I meant was, when it comes to fireworks, you really want the most bang for your buck:

So always look for the cartoon steam whistle shouting, "Bang!"


You should also familiarize yourself with what fireworks actually look like, so you don't end up with a bunch of...bombs. (See what I did there?)

Even if they are patriotically

penis-ish ones.

No, trust me, you don't want sprinkles.


I see...slushies.


Oh my gosh! They killed Blinky!

(That's the red ghost from Pac-Man, kids. Now stop making me feel old.)


Important rocket safety tip:

The flamey bits should always come out the back.


Also, don't forget your patriotic donut holes!

At least they remembered the blue balls this time.


Oh, and Canada, lest you think I've forgotten you:

Happy Bloody Band Aid day!

(Once you see it, it's all you'll see.)


Thanks to Jessica G., Dawn S., Gail D., Deanna T., Amber S., Leanne O., Saralyn T., & Jennifer O., who make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh" while they shoot across the sky-y-y.

In a firework-y way, I mean.

Not a penis-ishy way.

NEW GOAL: Work the word "penis-ishy" into as many conversation today as possible. Starting...NOW.
