Gosh, Kermit, I Think I'd Get That Looked At...

Friday, August 15, 2008


The store selling these cakes (oh yes, there are more!) claims that they are watermelons.

Riiiight.

As you can see from this other example, the "slice" appears to have drifted southward over time, resulting in the truly unfortunate and rather alarming spectacle you see here. In fact, this guy could be the new spokesman for certain "personal care" items, don't you think? Can't you just see him bouncing across your television screen, his squeaky voice telling you to "ask your doctor if HerpAway is right for you!"?


Thanks to Bahktin for the pic, originally posted here.

haha, the red part is supposed to be the guts?

Mag's Nags said...

That is just plain wrong. Sick. Perverted. Absolutely hilarious. Kermi had a sex change and is officially 'OUT'!!!

If I was that frog, I'd get those black bumpy spots looked at!

Hi, Just wanted you to know that I thoroughly enjoyed this blog. My SIL hooked my up with it. I used to be a cake decorator, so I can appreciated this whole site. It's amazing what some people and some decorators can do (or not do) to a cake. Thanks for sharing.

I'm speechless...

The Union Girl said...

OMG, I think I must now always start my day with a cake wreck! You brighten my day with the social commentary and the pics, OMG, I just keep laughing so hard, I cry. Wonder if I could get that printed on a cake.

I have to also admit, I've NEVER EVER had these experiences with cakes. What I've ordered has always come out correctly. So seeing these things, well, it just becomes that much more funny!!

Thank you for making my day!!

TheCourteousChihuahua said...

ah, Jen...you make me laugh. That picture makes me itchy.

merlin said...

The cake itself looks kind of worried.

Becca said...

AHAHAHAHA.

Win.

Valarie said...

I was looking up information on watermelons and I read that the "flesh consists of highly developed placental tissue within the fruit."
Between that quote and that picture, I'm never eating watermelon again.

V. Nicharico said...

LOL!! I could probably get that it's a watermelon if it didn't have, you know, great bulging eyes or arms and legs ;p

Like that, it just looks like a very unfortunate female critter that really needs to visit her gynecologist!!

Lady J said...

oh dear Kermit has Herpes!

Erica said...

Ewwww... that's so horrid! They need to fire that cakemaker. First of all, why does the watermelon have eyes and arms? It's clearly a vagina when you add body parts!

Gayle said...

Once again, your blog has made me laugh until I cried. Thank you for making me smile first thing this morning!

Amy D said...

Okay, before reading about the pic, I tried to decide if it was a very bad Kermit or if it was an OLIVE! Watermelon?? NEVER! Happy Friday and cheers! ~holds up coffee~

NipponElla said...

Besides laughing at their idea of how you cut watermelons, I find it wholly disturbing that they thought it was a good idea to make the watermelon a "person." I mean, it's one thing to eat a cake that looks like a My Little Pony (one of my first birthday cakes growing up) but it's something else to have a watermelon-man frosted so that it looks he's committing seppuku.

mommy skonovd said...

um yeah. and what exactly is that supposed to be?!?! and who would buy it?!? it looks like a really bad groom's cake!

Courtney said...

I am not sure of the last time I saw a watermellon with eyes?? Thanks for the laughs keep them comming:)

Anonymous said...

And I just THOUGHT the feet cakes
were disgusting.

Who would do that to an innocent cake?

Obsidian Dragon said...

You know, it wouldn't be that bad if it ditched the limbs and the eyes.

But with them...

....ew. I'd buy one just for the hilarity, but it would be 'fun' trying to force myself to eat it.

Anonymous said...

Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.

I'd still rather eat this one than the faeces-and-flies cake, but ...

that girl down south said...

I'm not sure this will get approved but all I can think is "vagina"! Especially the one in the link.

My goodness this is indeed a wreck.

Maggi-nifica said...

ok - having just spent that last 20 minutes digging through this new gem that is your blog...
Oh my god...
SERIOUSLY?

that's too much - the second cake looked like an evil alien va-jay-jay.

eesh!

Katie Alender said...

O M G

Horrific! I'm with Amy, it looks like an olive to me. But no matter what it is, it's wrong, wrong, a thousand times wrong.

Amy said...

Oh dear!

M, Ms. R, Mom, Auntie M, Marey said...

Uh....!!

I have a picture of our Super Bowl cake from years ago....we said to write Pittsburgh "Steelers" and when we went to pick it up it said, "STEALERS!" We took it home like that....would you like a picture?

mom said...

Nevermind the fact that if someone was feeling in a watermelon state of mind that they could...eat. a. watermelon.

Isn't a watermelon cake a little bizarre? Unless of course you own a watermelon farm, have just been crowned the county watermelon princess queen, or some such.

Manders said...

Hmmm...Poor Kermit!!

Tristan said...

If they claim this is a watermelon....why add legs and eyes...OMG, It would have been much better without..lol!

What's Her Face said...

Why do I feel like they couldn't make up their mind about the cake? Were they going for a frog or were they going for a watermelon? These are two things that SHOULD NOT be mixed.
Watermelons should never have eyes and hands, especially if you are going to cut them open.
My next question...people actually buy these cakes?

Jenna said...

if its suppose to be a watermelo, then why the arms and legs??? Wierd!

Love your blog these cakes are hilarious

Carrie said...

i have to order a cake in a few weeks, and part of me hopes it turns out awful so i can submit it to you! :) But since it's for a child's baptism, I hope it is just what i order.

Thank you for making me laugh each day!

whywouldyouknitthat said...

I am wondering:
1. Have they actually sold any of these cakes?!

and

2. Exactly what occasion are these cakes appropriate for? I am afraid to ask!

Jorge PatiƱo said...

In a very sick way, it is kinda cute :s

Magatha said...

Since when do watermelons have eyes? Or vaginas for that matter?

I think those spots need medical attention STAT.

Jengersnap said...

Awesome, I know what to bring to the next office pot luck!

Kristin said...

You just keep topping the gross factor! My gosh, WHAT ARE PEOPLE THINKING!!!!!!!!!

Tanya said...

This is so wrong. So very, very wrong. A watermelon? Please. That is a sick and perverted frog!

yayadesigns said...

Honestly, I dont know which picture was worse..1 or 2? 1 looked like a whole body shot and the 2nd one looked like a closeup!

Amy Ellen said...

WOW, I can't stop laughing, that is sooo bad. Not to mention ewww who would want to eat that. And no it oes NOT look like a watermelon. Yuck....
Amy

Faith said...

Ok, even if it is supposed to look like a watermelon, I don't see why it has to have arms, legs, and buggy eyeballs put on it. What kind of freaky watermelons did they eat at THAT GUY'S house growing up???

My watermelons were appendageless, couldn't look at me, and didn't have gaping wounds that kinda of deter one from wanting to eat them.

People are so freaking WEIRD!

Sunny Lea said...

Oh. God.

Can't. Breathe.

Must. Stop. Laughing. (That cake in the link is pretty horrifying too, but this one really... er... takes the cake.)

Kierra said...

*tilts head to the side* why would a watermelon need arms legs and eyes? Thats disturbing in of itself.

That is one creepy design.

~Kia

MaryO said...

Words fail me, I'm laughing too hard. If I were a kid, I would be afraid of that cake. If I were a 14 year old boy ---- I shudder to think... You've outdone yourself and THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!

emotionalsquid said...

heck, put this one together with yesterday's "no sexual harassment" cake and you've got yourself a party! an awkward, awkward, party.

Dea said...

That is wrong on so many levels.

And the other example pic with the higher location of the *ahem* bits - is even naughtier - like some cartoon vulva for a health class....

Do some people just not look at the anatomies of humans??? Are they that clueless as to what "it" looks like "down there"???

Claudia said...

Maybe it might have been more believable if they'd made the dark green and light green lines that are on watermelon. And if they'd neglected to give it arms, legs, and googly eyes. And if they'd made the "cut" bit a bit sharper instead of a jagged gash.... Maybe...?

Brent said...

I thought at first that this was just the first step toward bringing together the horrible pregnant cakes with the baby butt cakes :-)

Trevor said...

I agree with Amy_D. Before trying to read what it was SUPPOSED to be, I wanted to figure out what it is. I thought it was an olive as well. I never figured it for a watermellon. OMG! I love it.

I've been sharing this site with co-workers. It is providing us a good laugh each day. keep it up.

Kristin Coppee said...

Thanks for the laughs. A friend turned me onto your blog and I laugh so hard I cry sometimes.

This cake is horrid. Makes me never want to eat cake again!

Oh dear. I just finished going through your archives with one hand half covering my eyes. A futile attempt to shield myself from the horror, but an entertaining time nonetheless. Thanks for the laughs!

This cake looks like an autopsy in progress.

they could have lied and called it an OLIVE!! :)

LOVE THIS SITE !! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!! :)

I checked this out this morning and laughed so hard my husband came to see what was happening. I came back this afternoon to see if it was still as bad....It is! Still laughing. NO Body is eating that cake! HerpesRUs

Freezair said...

There's no way that's not intentional. No way. Someone must be very bored and trying to cheese someone off. How could you make something like that and NOT realize... *headshake*

Hi! I stumbled over here from JustJennRants, and you totally killed all productivity for the last oh, 20 minutes.

Thanks!

I cannot stop laughing!

hubby and i laughed so hard, we're in tears!

That's an absolute riot!

Array said...

Yeah, yeah, it kinda looks like a green vag. What it reeaaaally looks like to me is one of the Troggles from the Number Munchers computer game. I was a little bit afraid of them in elementary school, and so I'm also afraid of this damned cake. D:

OMG, this blog is freakin' hiLARious! Am posting about it tonight on my own blog to spread the word!!

That is really disturbing...

The Lunar Fox said...

"Ask your doctor if HerpAway is right for you!"

Hahahaha... I love your commentary. The cakes are very amusing indeed, but often it's your commentary I end up quoting out loud to go along with the cake that makes my significant other chuckle or outright laugh. XD

elsolylaluna said...

You know, I kind of want to make a "gash" joke, but even I'm not quite that crude.

Tamlynn said...

Thank you for this blog! My husband and I have read a few entries every day this week and have gone through the whole blog.

Last week, my husband seriously injured his eye. I won't gross you out with the details. He is homebound and pretty miserable. My friend told me about your blog, and it has helped keep his spirits up. I scroll to the cake wreck picture, he squints at it with his good eye,(go ahead and laugh, it IS funny) and then I read your awesome comments to him. You have us roflol.

Thanks!

Stephanie said...

I read your blog for nearly an hour. I think it's very intelligent, and very specific, which means good reading! Love for you to check out my blog, which is about writing & bizarre sights in Chicago and New Jersey. I hope you'll find it as entertaining as I found yours,

Stephanie

Steven said...

Oh, wow. I found this site through Best Week Ever, and now am an avid reader. This is the first time that I am posting, though. Let me say... these cakes are hilarious, and your commentary is fantastic.

Please, PLEASE! Keep up the good work!

And that cake... ROFLMAO. That is just BAD.

Sleepwalker said...

'HerpAway' *snorts* Heeeee! Pure gold.

At any point whatsoever did a bakery manager say gosh, maybe we should rethink placing this cake on the shelf for customers to view (much less consider buying)?

Someone stuck in the dim recesses of a bakery apparently believes negative attention is better than no attention at all.

Sue said...

First time here. I've added you to my favs and linked you on my blog. Great stuff!

I think they might make a cream for that malady Kermie has!

Dalton said...

That is unfortunate. Kermit has a gaping hole.

Oh my goodness!! I just found your blog. Thank you for some great laughs. What a funny way to start out my morning. I love it.

Invernessca said...

your site is one of the funniest I read, and now my teenager and her friends are hooked as well. It was the sasha cake...her name is sasha and she's about to leave for her first year of college, so I used the cake wreck as part of a good-bye card--we're all devoted fans now. thank you for your efforts and wit.

Christy F said...

The funniest thing to me is the expression and body language (can you call it that?)of the little guy...uh,gal...

It looks really confused.
I can't imagine why.

Chilly said...

I've just discovered your blog via D-Listed Decor and spent the past hour reading every single post. To a blog-junkie like me, this one is pure smack... The sugar-frosted kind!!

By the way, that frog/watermelon cake is embarrassingly bad. The naughty implications are .. wow.

It may be a bit off topic, but go to www.rosebudcakes.com if you want to see the best cake design studio in the country!

oooh, kermit's naughty bits have spots!

oh my gosh. that is hilarious!!!!

The photo came from a Fred Meyer store, and I shop at that chain regularly. I will _so_ be checking out the cake section!

purple-goat said...

I've suddenly lost my appetite.  Who would've thought that both cake and watermelon could suddenly become un-appetizing? :)

Parthenogenetic said...

The shocked "watermelon" eyes are really what sells it. It reminds me of the "congratulations on becoming a woman" cake we used for a prop in a play once. If only we'd thought of giving the cake a vagina!

KJ said...

So glad I found your blog ...needed the laugh. Off to send your link to everyone!

And I guess it never occurred to these geniuses to make the red slash go horizontally like a mouth, rather than slapping it down right between the "legs"?

Can we just be glad that there isn't a wee marzipan baby being squeezed out?

Dan said...

Wow, I didn't realize that Kermit had one of those... It- uh..

I'm going to have to see a therapist now, to reevaluate my formative years watching Sesame Street and to rid my mind of the images of angry black specks peering at me from a puppet frog's vagina.

Tismee2 said...

This blog will definitely curb my sweet tooth if there are more like this one. Do these cake decorators have any brain cells?

Anonymous said...

I've heard of watermelons being used as... er, sex toys for boys. Which brings a new dimension to the question, "Who was this intended for?" Especially with the addition of eyes, arms, and legs.

Anonymous said...

Too, too funny! I wonder if Kermit here and the "cold sore" cake are related. A sort of before and after, maybe?

polyandrova said...

You call this cake a "He"? Man, it's quite obviously a woman. With black spots in her... fruit meat...

whoa! After seeing the first cake I have to say...

why would they move the gash lower???!!!!!

I'm seriously starting to worry about the world....

Denise "Red" said...

Ok that's it...I have officially lost it. This cake has sent me over the edge...and there is no recovering from this.

While I came to work with good intentions I found your blog and began to read. Silly really, how dare I waste company time and money to read another's blog. But hell it's my break time.

I got to this cake and fully understood the reason for waterproof mascara. My boss has gotten up from his desk to find out what the whimpering sound is. Unfortunately it's me trying to surpress my laughter. Yes, since I had tears running down my cheeks I shamelessly let him think I was crying. He meekly walked out telling me to take whatever time I needed.

Thank you for making me laugh. I have shared your blog with many others on another bulletin board. I have encouraged them to all go to a local bakery and order a cake. We are deciding on what it should say. The results should be entertaining to say the least. :)

cinnamon-clove said...

I am literally crying with laughter while trying to be silent incase my family hear me and think I'm laughing at nothing. THANK YOU for making this site. It's really made my day.

Stephanie said...

My 4-year-old daughter saw this cake and the other one and said "Is that a watermelon cake? A frog watermelon cake?" So.. at least kids first see the watermelon.

dragonflii said...

Well, it's certainly better than the evil vortex vagina cake that it previously was! But, do they really need watermelon cakes? Why not one that looks like a slice of watermelon?

Anonymous said...

eeewwww...i'm an o.b. nurse and that looks frightfully familiar!

Does appear Kermit had a sex change surgery gone very wrong. Poor Kermie.

Stephanie said...

Hi, I just found out about your blog and I love it! I wondered if you had a picture of the above cake and sure enough, a Google site search revealed this post, sans back story! A friend of mine showed this to me and the story is way better than the cake itself. So here is the original letter that was included with the photo, taken from Rick Emerson's blog (he's a radio show host in Portland, OR).

Rick,

I was shopping at Fred Meyer last night when I was startled by this vagina cake.

The cake is a watermelon with a slice out of it and all of them except one have big plastic ants on them. This one has eyes, arms and legs and a vagina?? I am a gay man that has never personally seen a vagina and now have a very distorted picture of what a vagina looks like. Do they all have seeds?? My partner thought it looked similar since they raised the frosting around the edge.

Also, I felt like a pervert when I was taking the picture and a lady and her kids were watching me. Or was it the fact that I let her know that, "the cake didn't do anything for me, I just think it's funny." If I go back and buy it I'm definitely going through the uscan.

Thanks, Startled gay in NOPO.
