In So Many Words...

Thursday, December 25, 2008

Today's Wrecks speak for themselves. Or at least attempt to.

I find myself wishing this said "holladay", just so I could work in a lame Gwen Stefani reference. But since I'm just a girl (in the world), I guess I'll leave that up to you guys.



Now that's a stingy well-wisher.



What's worse: making this cake, or serving it to all your employees at the company Christmas party?


Ignorance can be beautiful. Unless of course this snowman is named "Happe", and belongs to someone named "Holidey".



"Mercy" is right; get a load of what Rudolf is holding!

[singing] "I'll have a POO Christmas, without youuuu..."



"Let it is snow"?


Careful; buying this cookie "cake" may enter you into a binding legal contract.

And lastly, an oddly emphatic proposal:


Christnos, you sly dog, you, I bet you get this cake for all the girls. [wink]

In case these failed to get the message across: Merry Christmas, all. May your day be sweet and utterly wreck-less .


Many thanks to holiday Wreckporters Jenn S., Irene D., Bergen W., Todd T., Abby, Jennifer L., Jessica C., and Angela M.!

Thanks for a good Christmas laugh :)

I often hope that these cakes are from non-English speaking countries.

Canadian said...

The "Santa Clause" one is not really a missed spelling. I live in Canada and was taught in grade school to spell it with a "e" at the end.

Norma said...

Merry, Merry Christmas!!! This is the best batch ever. I spit eggnog all over my laptop!!! Best wishes to Happe, Christnos and all the intrepid cake decorators at bakeries everywhere who don't allow themselves to be limited by spelling, grammar and punctuation.

Matt said...

Marrychrist Mas to you! Hope you have a great hollideys.

Justfrosting said...

Merry Christmas to you. Thanks for all the laughs this past year!!!!

Rubber Ducky said...

Marry Christnos everybody!

And a Hapy New Yeor!

MarieA said...

and even Christmas Day she finds time to remember those addicted to wrecks.

Happy Holldays to you too.

Kristen said...

Thank you for the Christmas morning laugh - these are great! I think I especially like the marriage proposal, or shall we say, order.

Hope you are enjoying the day with your family!

maggie said...

Thanks, and marry Christnos to you too! At least I can be assured I won't have any of those cakes today.

Anonymous said...

POO Christmas! LMAO!!

Amy said...

And thus, my heart was grieved at the slaughtering of simple Christmas greetings slapped upon innocent cakes...

Merry Christmas!

Jadyn said...

I love how the "e" in Clause is squeezed in there. They just couldn't resist, they knew it was correct but then...the piping bag...it just took over!

The Courteous Chihuahua said...

Thanks, Jen, for the gift of laughter! ...MarryChrist Mas two you and "John"...

terrib said...

Not one single Hannukah wreck. Is that because you really can't misspell Hanukkah? Or is it Hannukkah, Chanukah, Channukah...

M.D. said...

Rudolph brings all new meaning to the "Yule Log" ;)
I hope everyone has a Marry Christnos. "I DO!".

Twistie said...

And what a delightful pressie to get this morning!

Merry Christmas, Jen! Thanks for all the laughs.

jill said...

i'll bet the pink "Merrychrist Mas" cake is a disgruntled employee's response to being force to be politically correct. No tension in THAT office...lol

Passion Fruit said...

These are priceless!!
I kinda like the Santa Clause mitten cookie.

Merrychrist Mas to you and yours as well Jen!

Wv: unkshil - describes the makers of these cakes.

Laura/Notepad said...

For the first one , I almost wish it said "Hollyday"

Marrychrist Nos!

Deborah Godin said...

Thanks for so much wrecktainment, all year long and especially this Christmas! As long as there's chocolate icing, I know we'll keep on laughing (and maybe a little gagging, too) into the new year.

Amy said...

Marry Christmos to you too!

Tammy said...

I am gnawing on my cell phone because I have a truly wonderful cake wreck picture I took with it. But I cannot figure out how to get it to my computer. *sigh*

It was a deranged Christmas tree cake that looked like it was going to eat me. With what resembled embedded green candy corn teeth, no less.

However, those wrecks there look sufficiently wrecky. :)

Happy Christmas, everyone.

Aviatrix said...

Canadian, your grade school teacher had a screw loose. Legal clauses are spelled with the e. Santa Claus without.

May the cakes be the only part of everyone's Christmas that is not letter perfect.

Social Babel said...

I like to think that the decorator had written "Santa Claus" on the mittens appropriately, but another person came along and thought they were "helping" or "saving" the other guy by "fixing" it.

Sarah said...

Canadian -
Just because you were taught to spell it that way doesn't mean it's correct. My second-grade teacher tried to teach our class that "probably" was spelled "p-r-o-P-a-b-l-y." My mom corrected it on my spelling homework and wrote polite note to my teacher correcting her. Point: teachers are not always correct.

Mercy Xmas to you. I wonder why Rudolph has a pistol down the side of his nose.... help.....

Merrychrist Mas to you! ~ Robyn

vixen said...

Happy RamaHanuKwanzMas! Thanks for the site...best gift ever. Better even then the bottle of hot sauce I really did get this morning.

It was from my 5 year old so I have to forgive it a bit (her dad was with her tho) LOL

Donna said...

And a

Happy Hollday
Season Greeting
Merychrist Mas
Happe Holidey
Mercy Xmas (with a constipated reindeer)

To you too...and I hope that we
Let it's snow and maybe Santa Clause will officiate when you Marry Christnos!

Cindy said...

Now I'm convinced. Chain store bakeries are clearly outsourcing their cake decorating to China.

Rachel said...

If it said Holladay, I could make a Utah joke, as I live just north of a city by that name.

joan said...

Generic Non-offensive Midwinter Salutation to all!

(Someday I'm going to order that on a cake just to see what I end up with.)

Anonymous said...

Ha, not only does Rudolph look like he's holding in a load, but he himself actually resembles Mr. Hanky more than any reindeer I've ever seen!

Ro said...

These cakes make me want to become a decorator. Why am I working in an industry where my good spelling is going to waste?

Oh well MarryChrist Mas to all (I wonder if this one is because the root of the word is "Christ Mass"?)

redraven said...

A blessed Yule to you Jen! Thanks for bringing laughter into my life each and every day. Here's to a new year filled with wrecks that will make everyone giggle with delight!

Calantha said...

Marry "ChRist Nos" to you too Jen! Rudolph looks like he's trying to keep his stomach from bursting due to noshing to much!

Wilwarin said...

the cookie cake was so close to being right. the 'e' looks like an after thought.

merry Christmas!
(add liberal pinch of punctuation and stir)

Laura said...

I love it!

Merry Christmas!!!

Anonymous said...

The sad thing is, if the decorator could just spell most of these would be perfectly acceptable cakes. Not the reindeer cake- that will always be tacky.

jeremyandgirls said...

Merry Christmas!! My 4 yr old daughter was looking at these with me and saw the Rudolph holding poo and goes "Mommy! Look! It's Scooby!"

Hyena Overlord said...

I live in Canada and we spelled it without the "e". Must be like my married name. I tell everyone there is no e because e's cost money and we're the poor relations.

Thanks for the laugh. I think the snowman is cute. Rudolph, I've seen deer like that before. During hunting season, tied to the front of a vehicle.

wvotd quadow. "is when you hit a sore spot 4 times..you get quad ow's."

Kay said...

It wasn't a poo that I thought the reindeer was holding...

Katharine said...

Merry Christmas to you Jen, and thank you for giving me a laugh everyday.

Bento No. 1 Blog said...

There's a grocery store near me with a lot of holiday decorations sprayed on the windows. One of them says "Seasons Gretings!"

Word verification: pestsher. What you tell the kids after you've had one too many cups of 'cheer'. "Hey, now, don't pestsher me so mush!"

fuzzandfuzzlet said...

Thanks for taking time out of your christ MAS Hollday to give us our daily fix :)

We went to a friends house tonight, when they opened the box store cake I made everyone wait so I could do a close inspection. I had to make sure it was not wreck worthy. It was just your basic, poorly done ( albeit delicious) box store cake. No major wrecks.

Loretta said...

LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Those cakes are are too precious.

By the way, I`m Canadian and have never seen it spelt as Santa Clause.

Thanks and Merry Christmas!

emmalish said...

@Canadian, please don't think this is a Canadian spelling. I'm also Canadian, and I was never taught to spell "Santa Claus" with an "e" on the end, however there IS a completely different word spelled "clause".

I'm totally using Merrychrist Mas from now on!

Mad Hatter said...

Merry Christmas to you, no cake, but I ate plenty.

Scritzy said...

After all the christMAS treats I've eaten today, I'm afraid I look (and feel) like poor Rudolph.

Gad, that is one scary reindeer.

Hope everyone had a happy day!

Heather said...

Okay I gotta say it... for any of you on Facebook who play Pet Society - that reindeer TOTALLY looks like he's holding PS poops!! I can almost see it doing that wiggling/bouncing thing! lol
Happy Holidays Everyone!!!

Calico said...

thank you for the hugest laugh!! :)

Pauline said...

Merry Christmas, and thanks for all the laughs!

or is that "laugh's"...

Ren said...

I'd like to marry Christnos too, ktnxbai. ;-)

LOVE these!

Please pass the tylece!

laura said...

Oh, your blog brings me so much joy this time of the year! Marry Chrisnos to you, too!

Maria said...

Am I the only one who thinks that the first cake says: "Harry Hollday?", with it's somehow distorted Ps???

Merry Christmas, and thanks to Jen for this great blog!

Mitchell Clan said...

I would like to thank you for your contribution to my children's education. As homeschoolers, we're always looking for learning opportunities and today's spelling lesson was hysterically funny!!!

Kimmy said...

LOL in regard to the last one, a friend sent out a text yesterday that said "marry christmas"... and I looked at my hubby and said, "Why would I marry Christmas? I'm already married!" and then we both laughed.

Idk it was funny yesterday.

Anonymous said...

What is up with those cookie cakes? Do you think they are as bad as cupcake cakes?? Hmmm, nope.

Mandi said...

I picture Christnos as this strangely overweight Ukrainian with enough oil in his hair to grease Santa Clause's sleigh. Pretty demanding, isn't he?

PS Happy Hollday!

TexPatriate said...

I like how the "e" was ADDED to Claus.

It was correct and, *then* it got wrecked !

heee hee

In the "Happe" cake, you forgot all about the apostrophe in "Holiday's"!!! Too much eggnog? :)

Sport's Mom said...

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE!!!!!! My five year old niece can spell and punctuate better than that and she can hardly write her own name! AAAAAARGH!!!!!!

Stacy said...

I *love* your caption on the Marry Christnos cake! I laughed for about ten minutes. Poor guy- has to ambush women with cakes 'cause he's so desperate...

lawnajo said...

It looks like the Santa Claus one was correct to begin with and the wreckorator second guessed him/herself. (which is hilarious) Maybe because of the movie starring Tim Allen, "The Santa ClausE".

Angela M. said...

I'm so excited that you used our "Marry Christnos" cake!

It was halarious to see in on here.

Thanks for all the laughs!

Shaun and Laura said...

So, I once taught 9th graders who were to write in their journals daily. One student once spelled happy, "happey". Upon seeing the snowman cake my husband commented that I was wrong about my students not being very capable...at least that kid got a job.

Mar, said...

MerryChrist mas?

That's Spanish, right? For, um, "MerryChrist more?"

Penny said...

I am not sure rudolph is holding poop....it's look like he is holding something else though...

Canadianalso,butIdon'tspellclauswrong. said...

I hate it when people spell Santa Claus with an "e". That movie ruined holiday orthography.

MrsEmbers said...

OK, sorry to comment so long after this was posted, but the caption under the "Marry Christnos" cake just made me laugh so hard I snorted KD into my nose.

Thanks.

miss leigh said...

know what the really sad part is? most CHILDREN know how to correctly spell these phrases. as in elementary school :/

sgk91 said...

RUDOLF!!!!!!!!
WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO YOU???????????????????????

Rachel S. said...

On the first cake, I will have to say canned apple pie filling isn't too disastrous. The way she went about it, however, is a whole other story.

Apple pie filling can actually make a very nice cake center as well, provided it's mashed and you add about 1/3 cup of cinnamon. With a spice cake and buttercream, it's absolutely delicious.

Whoops, bit off topic there. Anyways. Funny as always, Jen. :)

Jenni said...

It looks like Rudolph is constituted of poo and is holding in his hernia. Did I spell that right? hyrneria? hyrnia? hernia? whatev.

Cupcakes Lady said...

lol The Rudolph cake...that's enough to scar a kid for life. Imagine waking up to that on Christmas morning. Waw! xx

In the cookie cake, I see a subliminal message. Santa Clause x
