Christmas gets weirder and weirder every year. I was in a bookstore the other day and I found this Charlie Brown Christmas kit. Is it me or does the very notion of this run contrary to the whole point of that particular Christmas special?
I've you've ever visited the Cake Wrecks site you've seen some truly horrific excuses for professionally decorated cakes. This week I found examples in my own town. All three of these were from the same bakery. I warn you, this is not for the weak of heart...or stomach.
Rudolph the Moldy Moustached Icing Blob anyone? No takers? No wonder. Even the cake looks revolted by itself.
How about this charming cake?
You're a foul one, Mr. Wreck.
You're a nasty wasty cake.
You're as pretty as some roadkill, you're as yummy as it too.
You're a slimy icky pile of green and red poo.
Lest we think the wrecks are limited to full-sized cake allow me to present some disastrous donuts. I'm not sure what is more upsetting, the snow white faces, the leaves for noses, the oddly swirly "hair," or the skewed smiles indicating a general sense of nausea.
Ok, I have poked fun at the bizarre ideas others have made available for Christmas, it's time to turn the tables on myself. Our office had the staff Christmas party this week. I presented this cushy handmade pillow to one of my coworkers who is known for laying her head on the ample bosom of another coworker and remarking on how comfortable a place it is to rest her head. I figure now she has a set of hooters to lay on any time she needs it.
Yes, I really made this and really gave it as a gift to a coworker in a place where I've only been working for about 3 months. I am just that twisted. Apparently, my coworkers are equally twisted. They thought it was fantastic.
Yeah, yeah, next you'll find the pillow on Regretsy.com. Just remember I've done an annual skewering of Etsy crafts just in time for various holidays for the past couple of years.
Here's my evidence.
