Happy Falker Satherhood!

Monday, May 4, 2009

As with the infamous USB cake, some Wrecks cannot be fully appreciated until you know the story behind them. Fortunately, you guys looove to tell me your stories - some of which I've been hoarding to include in the upcoming Cake Wrecks book - and now I think it's high time to start featuring more of them.

Ashley J. had two male coworkers each expecting a child, so the office decided to get them a cake. They wanted it to say, "Happy Fatherhood Shawn and Glenn".

Instead, they got this:

Like you, I'm sure, Ashley & the gang were just dying to know what the decorator thought he or she was writing, exactly. So, they decided to go find out. Yep, that's right: They grabbed a video camera (did I mention they work at the Fox television animation studio?) and strolled down the street to pay a little visit to the bakery in question.

Here's what happened next (the best bits are in the first 2 minutes):

"It's like a word journey" - hilarious. Oh, and Ashley writes "Please forgive the Tickle-Me-Elmo laughter coming from behind the camera...that's me."

Ashley, I think it's safe to say we all forgive you. It's just too bad the manager didn't have as much of a sense of humor as you guys did; after all, I think you and Rebner were extremely pleasant about it, all things considered. :)

someone said it looked like "father & otherhood",
maybe since it had two men's names, the older woman decorator thought it was a gay couple adopting, and that was the right term?
bad vision could account for the cross on the t being so out of place, that it looked like the bottom of an L.
and the h and ampersand were just made funny.

What was the final outcome, what was the decorator thinking? i'm dying to know.

This had me and my friend laughing so hard we could barely breathe, and that was months ago. To this day, I cannot say "happy falker satherhood" to her because I'm laughing too hard to finish the words once I start.

So glad I viewed this before putting on my eye makeup! I'm a year behind in viewing this but laughter has no expiration date so it still was the best way to start the day. Thanks for always giving us something to laugh about!

I guess what I don't get is why someone didn't notice that when they picked up the cake! But I love the guy behind the bakery counter!

Just found your site today, I've been surfing around quite a bit and alternately giggling and facepalming, but this one I had to comment on because it reminds me soo much of something that happened to me when I was young.
When I was about six years old, I read a lot and most of my books were fairly large chapter books (this LotR. Yes, I'm serious.). My family didn't have a whole lot of money, so as extra little gifts for my birthday, my mother decided to make me some bookmarks, which was really very sweet of her. Something, however, went a little screwy in my old lady's brain, God Bless her, and I recieved one of the bookmarks with an inscription much like Happy Falker Satherhood. It read:
Mommy and Elspether
There were also a number of bunnies and flowers and other things on it that little girls tend to like. So what's the problem? My name is actually Elspeth. Apparently the 'er' ending was too much to resist on all lines and I was given the bookmark without her ever even noticing. I still have it around, making me giggle now and then.
Too bad it's not a cake. Otherwise it would already be in your inbox. XP
I guess it's just proof that any of us can become wreckerators with very little difficulty.

Word Verification: Panatish. Obviously an obscure cake hybrid of a Danish and Spanish pan bread. With some Italian tiramisu, in there, but, shh, don't tell the in-laws or they'll disown me. :P

Soo funny! I think the guy behind the counter should be a manager. He handled the situation a lot better then the actual manager. A GREAT laugh!!:)

Kristan said...

Maybe there was an instruction to write it in cusive (kersave?) that got mixed in with fatherhood? That's my best guess... Wow... :)

Lucy said...

I think they were being a little obnoxious about the whole situation!

Lucy said...

I'm just wondering what exactly was written on the order form for this cake....It seems a little odd that she would take "Happy Fatherhood Shawn and Glenn" and turn it around into a whole "congratulations" thing! It's possible that the people who ordered the cake were to blame not the poor little cake decorator!

Um, really, was a 6-minute confrontational and humiliating video really necessary? Mean-sprited and ridiculous. The cake speaks for itself.

That is a hilarious video . But hey, they work at a big company like Fox and they got a cake from the grocery store. Of course i do think that our local grocery store makes delicious cake, I unfortunately can't leave without buying some.
