Funny

Tuesday, March 17, 2009

I love labels. See, I titled this post 'Funny', and therefore it is, right? I think that's the theory behind this cake, anyway:


Maybe we should try that with all cakes. See, this next one could be "Lizard Crushed Under Petrified Easter Egg":

Poor guy. Those eyes just about popped out, didn't they?

"What Happens When You Ask For 'Happy Birthday Jaime' Around St. Patrick's Day":


And "Recycling Soggy Corn Pops*":


To quote
"TV star" Alec Baldwin, "Mmm, mushy mush."



Happy Patricks, Sarah S., Steve R., Amy S. & Jeremy E.!


*Speaking of which, Corn Pops has the most insane website for a breakfast cereal I have ever seen. Has Kellogg's gone 'round the bend?

The "gold" looks like slimy egg yolks. Appetizing.

Patti said...

OMG. That CornPops website is just bizarre.

n i l e e y said...

well, i gotta say they were thinking out of the box when they chose corn...

Viewtiful_Justin said...

Eh...what the heck is that turtle-type thing? I don't understand how that's remotely St. Patty's related...except it's green and someone put shamrocks on its back. How creative!

*headdesk*

Theresa said...

That Corn Pops website is insane, but I bet kids love it. It gave me a bit of a headache.

Anonymous said...

whoa!!! that corn pops site is just WAY out there!! definitely adds to the "HMMMM.. mushy mush"-ness of kids brains!

ohh.. and the cakes are wrecktastic as usual.

"To quote 'TV star' Alec Baldwin, 'Mmm, mushy mush.'"

This caption made my day!

('Cause we're aliens, and that's how we roll.)

DangGina said...

My friend Jamie is married to Patrick, so that "Happy Patrick Jamie" could SORTA work for her. :)

Also, don't hate me, but that squished lizard/turtle cake with the bugged out eyeballs? I think he's cute.

"Funny."

You were right...

Kevin said...

Looks like the boys in Advertising over at Kellogg's have been taking hits off of Michael Phelps' bong.

Leslie said...

These cakes are just so assertive...they know what they are and they're going to tell the world about it. So there.

the grumbles said...

My name is Jamie and tomorrow is my birthday! Thank god I've never gotten a cake like that though...

Kelli said...

Did they ask for Happy Birthday J'aime (my friend in french) or Happy Birthday Jamie? Was it a double wreck?

FreedomFirst said...

EEeuuuuwwww, those corn pops look nasty!

Michelle said...

Wow, that corn pops site is so crazy, I had to stop and think, "How did I get here?". When it finally came back to me.... The first cake is awesome, maybe that's what they should have written on it.

Toriisen said...

What's up with the Pop's website? Better question, what were they smoking?

subtedo- A plant smoked by crazes cereal makers when designing websites

Anonymous said...

wow - that cornpops site was worth the entry price to cakewrecks alone!

Deanne said...

Mushy mush... LOL

Dawne said...

I'm pregnant, and that last cake almost made me barf :yuck:

All Adither said...

Those corn pops must be lemon drops. Otherwise the universe makes no sense.

Eileen said...

I've got to ask, do you visit a lot of cereal websites?

Alicia Leigh said...

Pretty sure the creators of that website could have benefited from a label: CornPops (NOT Cocaine).

utaduta said...

thoses cakes do suck. the pot of gold grossed me out. but that cornpops website? i want the same "stuff" the web designers were taking! my kids loved it! haha! to be 4 and 7 again!

Fluffy Cow said...

So, if cake decorators all wore labels that said, "Intelligent and Tasteful" then there would be no CakeWrecks.

That would be sad.

The Ferber Family said...

dude, you weren't kidding about the corn pops site! wacko!

also, i think those things on the cake are lemon drops... sad, sad, little MELTING lemon drops... eeewwwww....

Laura said...

Wow. That third one ("Happy Patricks Jaime") is REALLY wrecky.

Imagine the gall of a baker, to sell a cake that's already HALF EATEN!!!

Jen said...

I just went and looked at the Corn Pops website and now I am terrified. I think I'll be staying out of the cereal aisle for awhile.

jengersnap said...

Websense, our corporate firewall, blocks the Corn Pops site. I guess that scared me enough right there.

WV: siesse. As in General Mills needs to siesse and desiesst.

Truly Hideous Gifts said...

Wow. Trippy Corn Pops site!!

Amy said...

That sugar pops rainbow cake is gross. Looks like something the cat yarked up..

~Amy B

Vanilla said...

I like that the Happy Patrick's cake must have looked so delicious that they couldn't wait to eat it until after the picture was taken.

I Love Baby Quilts! said...

Wow, Kellogs has been smokin' the crack rock. That is an acid trip website for sure.

megan said...

The Happy Patricks Jaime is not only rediculous, but obviously off center considering there's a bunch of cake missing.

VeggieT said...

It's funny that when I first saw the "turtle" cake, the first thing I noticed was the sticker that said "Yellow." Oh the Irony! -- Samuel

B said...

I looooove Alec Baldwin in that hulu commercial. I laugh hysterically every time. It makes me happy you were able to reference it :)

Rebecca said...

Maybe, that first one is supposed to be a play on words? "Irish" you a Happy St. Patricks Day!?!?! :o)

Anonymous said...

laughed outloud again!! dont know whats best awful cakes or your dry humour keep it up!! by the way St Paddy is really Welsh you know!M Banks-wilkinson Brigend UK

msyendor said...

So ... I suppose Irish turtles have to lay their eggs somewhere.

MalMal said...

The turtle-thing one is already labeled... it's called "Yellow." And yet, it's green... it speaks to the dichotomy of our emotions to the outside world. The cake is Yellow, but I'm blue... and therefore.... Green.

This deep thought brought to you by Girl Who Needs More Coffee.

Jamie said...

You know, since my name constantly gets spelled 'Jaime' by idiots who assume the light brown hair (white blond when I was a kid), blue green eyes, and pale skin must indicate I'm Hispanic, I just can't be bothered to care about that particular screw up.

Redd--or should that be Greenn? said...

Just when I think that CCCs can't get any uglier, a cat throws up corn pops right on top of a rainbow.

Tovah said...

That corn pops website was totally insane! Thanks for sharing:)

lieblingartcrafts said...

That rainbow one. Wow. The pot of gold is supposed to BE at the the end of the rainbow. Not BE the end of the rainbow. Yikes.

Liz said...

Wow I didn't realise some cereals have hallucinogenic qualities... I will be staying away from cereals for a while too, or at least until I hear that the web designers and creative team have gone into rehab.

Jenn J said...

Oh, umm...wow! I can't believe it, but you turned my stomach with the corn pop rainbow. No way will those ever jump into my cart at the store. The first cake was hilarious, it make me go "ya think?!" I felt bad for the turtle, because obviously the weight ofthose shamorocks on his shell is too much for him to handle. And the last one....I'm not going back to that.

deckardcanine said...

Having seen "Hellboy" just last night, I believe those are Sammael eggs. Don't eat them!

WV: forts -- yeah, we're going to need some of those pretty soon.

Scritzy said...

I enlarged the pot o' gold cake to check out those yellow things.

I know they aren't Corn Pops by the shape, but I still have no idea what they are.

A couple of them look like Spree candies. The rest? Gad. Who knows.

Word verification: adspyro. A good way to describe the Corn Pops website.

Jen said...

@Eileen - that's just how I roll.

Although I'm thinking Corn Pops owes me a few free boxes after today's inadvertent advertising. :D

Meagan said...

Yummy Mush indeed I've gotta say that pot of gold looks none too appetizing.

The petrified Egg and squishy lizard look a little chalky.

The CornPops site is totally wacky!

Happy St. Pats.

Anonymous said...

Maybe the "Irish" cake was really a birthday cake for "Trish" that got recycled? :)

kara said...

People will use any excuse to get a cake... and look how they're rewarded!

mare said...

CW1 looks like it was a shamrock-birthday cake for Trish, and when it wasn't picked up, they made it "Irish."

Liz said...

@ Kelli--J'aime" is French for "I like" or "I love", as in "J'aime CakeWrecks". "Mon ami" is French for "my friend". Just had to set that one straight.

And I do believe that the rainbow cake is one of the scariest things I have ever seen...at least, among things claiming to be edible.

Indecisive said...

Yeah, agreeing to the trippy quality of the CornPops website. It reminds me of the "fruity oaty bar" commercial in Serenity, which is to say, Japanese... on crack.

Samantha Suzuki Photography said...

Someone at Kellogg should be fired for that website! (needless to say, the cake decorators should go too!)

Ted S. (Just a Cineast) said...

I went to the Corn Pops website and got an obnoxious enough message telling me they want to force me to use Expletive Deleted Flash (TM) to view the site, having turned it off by default.

I can only imagine what the Expletive Deleted Flash (TM) animation is like.

Jagyularr said...

The thing that intrigues me more than anything else about the CornPops website is that it apparently had to load four different times before I could get to the content.

Mary Jean said...

WTF is up with the corn pops website? It's the best web advertising I've seen.... almost as good as the chupa chups website.

My Big Fat Super Super Obese Blog said...

lmao at the cornpops.

Is it just me or does it look like someone peed all over them? ewwww gross, I don't like my cakes shiny and wet looking.

Sil said...

Congratulations for the bloggies!!! Aren't you proud with not one, but TWO prizes!!???
You deserve it!

Trish said...

I've often wondered why my son is so fond of Corn Pops. I've also had many moments where I ponder why he has so much darned energy and where the heck he gets it from. Thanks for solving my dilemma!

Apparently, Corn Pops have some form of speed in them, and the Web Site designers eat ALOT of 'em.

Anonymous said...

Since most of the people I know who eat Corn Pops are adults with "the munchies" on a regular basis, the website seems just about right.

Jenny said...

Wow, that Corn Pops website is crazy. I had to leave before finding out if the boy and the monster would indeed become BFF's because the flowers with the mouths were truly frightening.

I hope Jamie did have a happy Patrick because happy Patricks are make the world go round.

Anonymous said...

LOL at anyone believing those are actually Corn Pops. They're butterscotch discs.

Margaret said...

At least when they ate some of it, it made it square and centered. I bet it looked even worse.

Anonymous said...

And Kelloggs fired Phelps for one lousy bong hit? Somebody was smoking way more than that when they made that Corn Puffs Site!!

Lindsey said...

Oh my gosh, that corn pops site was INSANE!! I was stunned into silence and couldn't stop watching. Crazy.

I think those corn pop looking things on that cake could be butterscotch candies. Did they melt though? So yuck!

Thanks for the laughs!

labdogs42 said...

You should see how weird the Corn Pops site is without Flash installed. My work laptop usually ruins all of my fun, but seeing that creepy Corn Pops website sans flash really cracked me up!

Borbu -- what you ask for a shot of when you've have too much bourbon.

Leon Basin said...

Hey, how are you doing? Hope all is well

Little Scarf Girl said...

Yuck! The "corn pops" one looks like someone opened a can of corn and dumped it on the cake, corn juice and all!

Jessica said...

AAHHHHH! Why did you make me go to that Corn Pops webstite? Freaky

academic poser said...

That corn pops web site is the best! Thank you mushy corn pop gold cake.

Christine G. Hodge said...

That website seems a little excessive for breakfast cereal, doesn't it?

Melissa (& Billy) said...

Blargh, sticky slurry all over that sad, sad cake. And it looked like it was going to be so happy, with the rainbow and everything.

The "Irish" looks more like a label. What, is the cookie flavored with Baileys? Either that or, "What's the guy's name? Eh, I can't remember. It's got something to do with being Irish. That's good enough."

WV, 'trathr'--Paddy said: "Faith'n begorrah, I t'rather celebrate by rais'in a pint than with that wreck of a cake!"

clueuin said...

Finally, truth in advertising!.....
.....I mean the 'Irish' cake not the Corn Pops Cereal Website.
The day I see mouths on a daisy eye is the day I put myself in the nearest mental institution. Yikes!

I feel for that Boy'o Jamie however it could have been worse....
....he's birthday could have been on christmas!
(Come on imagine it for a minute, green and red frosting, Santa.....yet there it is....yes, Jen there could be more worse things that a Irish birthday cake wreck)

Happy St. Patty's and...
Peace,
Clueuin

P.S
istam: when you stammer to much. I stam, I stam, ah forget it!
Funny no?

Alison said...

Anon @ 2:49 - so glad to know that I'm not the only one that realized they were butterscotch candies. I thought that maybe I was hallucinating since everyone else seemed to be seeing Corn Pops (which look totally different).

Still can't believe the Happy Patrick Jamie cake- so pathetic.

the mighty guin said...

Cornpops' site looks like it might induce seizures. Talking lizards just scream mind-altering recreation, somehow.

BigMomma said...

Someone over at kelloggs is seriously deranged!

Calantha said...

"Lizard Crushed by a Petrified Egg" has brightened my day. I could almost hear the heavy THONK! as the egg made contact.

Wow, mushy corn pops, a cake trying to be Irish.......this is one boatload of FAIL.

Anonymous said...

This post was worth it just for the link to the corn pops website. They must be trippin'.

Karen said...

I think your post belongs in the Blog of "Unnecessary" "Quotation Marks" - I mean, did you intend to question Alec Baldwin's capabilities as an actor (gosh, not that I'm blaming you... I mean, c'mon he IS a Baldwin after all!!)

Jenn said...

I think the "corn pops" are actually butterscotch disc candies covered in butterscotch or caramel.

Talk about a sugar rush!

Anonymous said...

OMG! That pop's site was hilarious! I enjoyed going to Japan and being on a crazy show. Haha!

Julie said...

pigs with flappy wings .. now i've seen everything (i hope) ... that site is JUST SO BAD - i'm really, really, really glad i didn't have the sound on when looking at it .... oh, and the cakes, fantastic wrecks, as usual.

nikki said...

oh my effing god, the corn pops site is like an acid trip. my dog is barking at the screen.

Monica said...

I just about had an epileptic fit looking at that website...

Sunshine said...

LOL someone had a one track mind when they did that Happy Patricks birthday cake lol

Fight Klub Ninja said...

I just went to the Corn Pops website and it like someone ate one of these cakes all by themselves and then while on a sugar icing induced hallucination created the website. The rapping lizard was just too weird.

Anonymous said...

I was reading your post when my laptop battery died. (Just as I clicked the cereal link) By the time I hade gotten the power cord, I forgot just what I was doing and when the machine reloaded (sound before screen) I was totally at a loss for the strange sounds my new laptop was making. I may actually have been relieved to see that sight as scary as it is.

wv: warally - "Ah warally let my kids eat sugah cereal."

ChatRabbit said...

Whoa- what's with the drippy corn niblets at the end of the rainbow? Totally gross.

Renée said...

I was definitely just mesmerized by the cornpops website... wow. just wow.

Hyena Overlord said...

Irish...I hadn't seen the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.


wv..entic...an ent with a tic...it's late and I have no imagination..sowwy.

Summer said...

If that first cake was sold around Notre Dame, I wouldn't see an issue with it. Since I grew up there, I don't even see what could be wrong with the cake! Go Irish!

rainlight-lyn said...

I saw my first CCC today. It looked like a green blob. I think it was suppose to be a shamrock.

Heidi said...

I personally thought that the comment on the "tv star" in quotes was the funniest part of this whole entry! :D

Corn Pops website...definitely on CRACK!

falcon said...

Corn Pops definetly are unique in their website design.

Oof, those cakes are ssooo not appetising.

Sorry for the bad spelling

bionelly said...

@Karen: If you click the link, you'll see the commercial Jen's referring to, in which Alec Baldwin uses air quotes when he introduces himself as a "TV star".

That Corn Pops cake could use a little blue pill to perk it up a bit

Wow yummy...;D

This cakes are really funny..;D
Thanks for sharing it to us.
I hope you could visit my blog too..

Okay, so I went to the Corn Pops website, and I agree with everyone- they must be on something. However, they discontinued Michael Phelps' contract because he was smoking pot. Where is the sense in that?

SweetCelebrations.US said...

Okay... I just went to the corn pops website and all I can say is uhhhh..... wow?

Entertaining link -- think my kids will enjoy it. I'm worried about it causing seizures, though, hehe

Love the Wrecks -- love em, love em love em!!

SweetCelebrations.US said...

loved the corn pops site : ) little worried about my kids watchin it and having seizures, though... haha

Tamsin said...

I miss Corn Pops, we don't seem to get them in the UK anymore. However, the website? What the fracking frack was that!?

ElleEnvy said...

CornPops is just the trippiest site ever. It doesn't look official at all. Who loves the hamsters?

velocibadgergirl said...

I was going to say something about the cakes, but that completely fabulously insane Corn Pops site wiped it out of my brain. Flying pigs? Corn Pop bees?? I don't know, man. But I like it.

The Gnu said...

i think the pops man needs to use the bathroom, heck, his jigging made me need to go!
and the line about no pops for komodo dragons, classic!

Visione Bella said...

Ok, THAT is a site purely created by someone on acid.... but seriously, have you ever checked out the SPAM website?! Holy crap...

Anonymous said...

Seriously, that Corn Pops website has jumped the shark...or the squished lizard under a petrified egg...

Jane said...

My husband took a picture at the grocery store two weeks ago, but we didn't get it sent in before St. Patrick's Day. The bakery evidently thought anything could be made a St. Patrick's Day cake by adding a plastic pot of gold to the top--hence a St. Patrick's Day black forest cake, a St. Patrick's Day apple tart, etc. Bizarre.

Anonymous said...

I went to the website. What. The. Hell.

bombaygirl said...

Comments from my son (4 yrs old):
First pic: That's a St. Patrick's Day cake!
Second pic: That's a St. Patrick's Day Turtle cake!

So atleast the point is coming across...

Anonymous said...

After seeing the Pops! website, I finally understand how so many of the cakes on cakewrecks came to be. Is it just me, or does anybody else think the same tokers made both?

Also, I feel like this comment submission form should be screenshotted and submitted to failblog. I would if I wasn't tired and in a lazzy mood. Can you guess what word I have to retype to prove I'm not a computer? It is "leption." A word that, according to the dictionary, doesn't exist.

So apparently the same tokers ALSO made the cakewrecks blog. LOL.
