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? ;)

High There

On January 1st, my home state of Colorado started selling legal recreational marijuana.

You know what that means, right?

TIME TO GET BAKED!

 

Ahem.

Say, you think this cake comes with a side of brownies? [eyebrow waggle]

 

I live in a college town, so I'm used to the occasional whiff of weed here and there. Still, you can imagine how it is now. Not to worry, though; I have an extremely strong constitution. Yep, stone-cold-sober Sharyn, that's what they call me! Heh. Aheh. Heh.

[long pause]

Man, I could really go for some nachos right now.

Weird. I don't even like refried beans.

 

Anyway, like I said, there's no chance of me being affected...

Hey, there's leftover spaghetti and biscotti! Brilliant!

It never even occurred to me to combine these before!
I think I'll call it "Bisghetti." No, "Spaghotti!"

Anyway, definitely getting a patent on this.

 

Wait. Waitwaitwait.
Wait.
(wait)
I don't want to scare you guys, but I think we're being watched.

[staring intently at the salt shaker]

(40 minutes later)

 

Hey, have you seen this picture of my brother's levitating cat?

I didn't even know c@s could DO th@!

=^..^= (The kids call that "texting.")

 

Well, I'm feeling a bit sleepy. So. You know...

Cha. Righteous.

 

Thanks to Anony M., Lisa H., Debra B., Rachael D., Jill A., Kelly B., & MJ. I'd say more, but I really need a snack...

All Intensive Purposes

It turns out there are some expressions people get wrong ALOT.

So as a public service, here's an easy guide to help you use those phrases correctly. After all, we'd hate to see you...

...hoisted by your own Picard.

[*snerk*]

Let's begin!

 

An irrelevant argument is a "moot point."

Whereas a cow giving directions is a "moo point."

 

When you want to end something before it has a chance to start, you "nip it in the bud."

Not the butt. And technically, I think those should be snipped.

(While we're at it, it's the "repository of knowledge," NOT "suppository.")

 

It's "I couldn't care less," not "I could care less."
But if you're still confused, try drawing a picture:

See how visuals can clear things up?

 

While we're on the subject, it's "exact" revenge, not "extract."

Either way, though, mission accomplished.

 

Never use "irregardless."

...unless it's part of the sentence, "Though she knew it would make her guests sick, she ordered the ear, regardless."

 

The old-fashioned curse is pronounced "doggone."
So try to avoid any versions rated "Arf."

Bow chicka BOW WOW.

 

And finally, when you really mess something up, you "wreak havoc," not "wreck" it.

o_O

Or on second thought, "wreck havoc" is perfect.

 

Thanks to Kelli G., Nikki D., Jenny C., Sherrie, Kathy S., Anony M., Megan N., and Frank W., who we would NEVER take for granite.

 

Note from john (thoJ)- We are aware that "ALOT" is wrong. It was a grammatical error joke in a grammatical error post. We even made it a link to the very funny Hyperbole and a Half post so people would know we were kidding. Have a nice night.
