I think we can all agree that if your name is pronounced "Elizabeth" but spelled with three "I"s and a silent "Q", then you void your right to complain when a baker gets it wrong.
However, there are times when you think the baker might have stopped to question somewhere along the line:
"Jackign?" Is that supposed to be Jacking? And if so, who names their child Jacking??
I've seen "Bart" turned to "Brat," "Brian" turned to "Brain," and "Tink" turned to "Fink" - but nothing beats the nickname Chris just picked up:
[That's right, Chris: you just got SUNDAY SCHOOLED.]
Of course, Doug's new moniker is slightly less complimentary:
But I'm sure he rose to the occasion anyway.
I like to think this is a cake for the Riddler's quintuplets:
But that's a questionable theory.
(In reality, they asked for the name to be written in Cyrillic.)
Look, bakers, I know there are lots of unusual spellings and strange name choices out there these days, but just remember:
If at first you don't succeed,
try it again in cursive directly underneath.
See? Bob's your uncles!
Thanks to Rae Lynn, Lizz H., Tom H., Jill C., Joel H., & Stacey T. for leaving out all the silent Qs.
