New Discoveries in the Animal Kingdom

Wednesday, November 4, 2009

I believe that all new scientific discoveries should be announced via cake, don't you?

[pushing back glasses and consulting clipboard] Ladies and gentlemen, I'm proud to present...

The Majestic Bagel-Nosed Falcon of Uganda!

Or it might be a fish. Fish...falcon...you know. Whatevs.

[Shuffling papers] Next we have...

The Majestic Happy Chicken-Footed Spiny-Backed Slime Devil.
(Watch out; they spit.)

We're still working on the scientific name for this one:

So for now let's just call it the Majestic Coiled Crap Hound.
(I think that has a real ring to it, don't you?)

Here we have a particularly colorful specimen:

The Majestic Disco Newt! Let's pause a moment to admire his beautiful plumage.


Right. That's long enough.

And finally, we have...

The Majestic Three-Toed Four-Eyed Whiskered Zebra Toad.
(Yeah, you heard me. ZooBorns, eat your heart out.)


Thanks to Kelly D., Kit R., Caitlin B., Jordan J. and Donald L., who are all, er, majestic.

lois said...

The names are MARVELOUS! Thanks for a good laugh!!

DebraSue said...

The Majestic Disco Newt is actually rather cute in a nerdy kind of way.

The back or shell(?) reminds me of those big parachutes that the kiddlies play with at early childhood family education classes. A lot of work went into all those little stars and the hint of a smile is precious.

As for the rest -- polite words fail me.

Amanda M. said...

The Disco Newt looks like one of those Simon games where you have to hit the colors in a certain order... the rest are just scary.

Love the names though - can't wait to see these specimens in my local zoo!

MarliO said...

Are you SURE that's a four eyed zebra toad? Or is it two zebra toads, uh, getting it on?

JHill said...

The disco newt looks like a turtle and a game of Simon made a baby.

Also, I appreciate how the wreckerators of the coiled craphound took the time to add a sprinking of random tufts of grass around the cardboard. It's all in the details.

john (the hubby of Jen) said...

MarliO,

Awesome.

john

TornadoBaby said...

Wow Jen, you're really on the ball with these new discoveries! None of the news sites have a peep about them!

;)

WV: "crations" We're reluctant to call these cakes actual creations, so we'll shorten it by a letter and call them "crations".

Fluffy Cow said...

How, um... majestic. The 4 eyed spotted thing gives me the willies.

InsertMonikerHere said...

Are those doughnuts encased in icing on the first one? And other lumps could be Twinkies. I thought the Halloween horrors were done with but - ahh! it's Frankencake!

Christine said...

The coiled crap hound is fantastic. Seriously made me laugh out loud, drawing attention from my confused half-asleep husband.

Gary said...

I actually like these, except for the Disco Newt. At least, they show imagination. The green carp/flounder with chicken feet and the bagel-faced chupacabra are especially interesting.

The Coiled Craphound would be a passable armadillo, except that armadillos have ears and they aren't chocolate brown. But if you had a very clever trained dog that could poop out armadillos, they'd look about like this ...

Kelli said...

You know, that last one kind of looks like there's two of them. I see two sets of 'front paw things' and two sets of eyes and it looks like, um this is awkward. Yeah, I think you see what I mean, right?
Aw crap, MarliO beat me to it! Where are our minds?

Steph M said...

The green one isn't a mutant croc or alligator is it?!? By the size of the feet it must have been crossed with a chicken!

Andrea said...

That green thing is shaped like the Beatle's "Yellow Submarine"! Except--it's green--of course....

Anonymous said...

As JHill said, it's hilarious that the creator of the craphound randomly put clumps around the critter...as if that would make it better somehow. LOL!

Jennifer N. said...

I feel sorry for the Majestic Coiled Crap Hound. He looks like he'd be really sweet if someone could look past his exterior and judge him on his personality alone. I'd adopt him.

thesacredandtheprofane said...

See, I saw the disco newt and thought, "Huh. Looks like they made a beach ball and decided summer was over so they had to make it into something else."



WV: impokeb- He didn't impale the head on the stake, he just impokeb it.

Deray said...

4-eyes on the Zebra-toad? I see 6 and I'm kind of scared to think that it might have more in the back! *shivers*

Anonymous said...

I'm thinking the coiled crap hound is meant to be an infamous Armadillo Cake

Karen B. said...

Thank you for yet again making me spit coffee across my desk in a fit a laughter! I should have learned my lesson at this point! Great post!!

Kathryn H said...

I Think the wreckerator forgot to write "John 3:16" on cake board of the disco newt.

Stephanie said...

"Watch out; they spit." That line did me in.
Thanks for my daily laugh! :)

WV: folfi - what comes out when you try to say "fluffy" with your mouth full of cake

I think it is sad that even the bagel nose creature looks scared. Ironic, don't you think?

Bow WOW

Terry Lee said...

crap hound. heh heh

it's shameful what they do with chocolate nowadays.

Half Assed Kitchen said...

That's gotta be a doughnut nose, don't you think? Because BAGELS and cake is so gross.

Leanne said...

The plumage don't enter into it! And hey, ZooBorns has baby otters, so I love them. :-) As for the, erm, majestic specimens... might need a new toilet brush after the inevitable excrement rainbow...

WV: nolic - No, doggie, nolic, I don't want to scoop THAT poop if you eat these wrecks!

Judy said...

I think it only fitting that we name the Majestic Disco Newt Simon. Pause...look again...you'll get it ;-)

Michelle S. said...

Shades of those LSD-tripping "butterfly" wreckerators.

Decadent Housewife said...

Coiled poop hound - thought it was sunburned Alf.

Monique in TX said...

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?!

I'm a biologist and I still can't classify any of those critters. I blame the hideous mutations on high levels of radiation... or mercury...or.... Nah, still no plausible explanation.

WV: calig= stuffed nose pronunciation of "calling." "Dis is de zoo calig. What are dose?"

john (the hubby of Jen) said...

Leanne,

Personally, I'm pinin' for the fjords, bein' all shagged out and whatnot.

Amy said...

I think the "disco newt" kind of looks like the Simon game from the 80's.. but with a face. creepy.

Tigerwolf said...

"The Majestic Happy Chicken-Footed Spiny-Backed Slime Devil.
(Watch out; they spit.)"

And just try riding into Agraba on one of those!

^..^

WV: ticesses. "As far as men's neckwear goes, this ticesses to amaze me."

Miranda said...

Disco Newt is acceptable for a wacky party. The others are horrible and terrifying!

Leely said...

Simon the Disco Newt is *adorable.*

Anonymous said...

Majestic?

Heather said...

That's a "doodie-dillo." You know, the fabled armadillo made of doodie.

Ashley said...

I spit my coffee out at "coiled crap hound". The day...is made, thanks to cakewrecks.

Kelly H said...

Could that be a veiled Monty Python reference on the Majestic Disco Newt?

Check out one of their best skits ever: The Dead Parrot

Beautiful plummage!!

Meg said...

I'm thinking that the Coiled Crap Hound was a Turdadillo in another life.

Judi said...

I don't know what that first one is supposed to be, but it's so cute I don't know if I want to eat it or pet it!

Megan said...

Love the gratuitous use of the world majestic!

Nicole said...

I'm supposed to be paying attention in my computer class at the moment, and it's taking everything in me to not burst out laughing at these wrecks and your commentary, Jen!

Keep it comin'!

Firelizards said...

Here are today's cakes according to my 5-year-old:

1) parrot
2) garden (he said alligator first but changed his mind)
3) armadillo
4) a snake all curled up, or a colorful turtle
5) funky frog

There you have it!

BeckyJo said...

The Disco Newt reminds me of the Webkinz Wheel of Wow. I made a Wheel of Wow for mw son's birthday a few years ago.

Garfman said...

The Craphound looks somewhat like a tardigrade: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waterbear

Except it's missing its middle legs.

Emily said...

Following in the tradition... This is what my 3 year old says these cakes are.

1. A rhino
2. A lizard
3. A monster made out of chocolate
4. He thought about it for a while and all he could come up with was "It's friendly"
5. Long, confused pause, "Another rhino"

Little Lovables said...

oh, so Majestic, each and every one!

good thing skinning animals for their pelts is so out right now

Stephanie said...

Unfortunately
They have not ceased to be, they are not ex-wrecks!

Anonymous said...

Short time reader; first time commenter...
Normally, your blog makes me smile, usually a chuckle and on occasions a hearty laugh. This morning, I lost it. The person I was on the phone with was worried I wasn't breathing. I am addicted to your site. If only I could get paid for reading it all day. Thank you for the smiles.

I agree with MarliO - two toads who love reeeeeally love each other. This should be a particularly special discovery since toads lay eggs. So many things to say, not enough room.

Lon said...

Simon the Disco Newt interests me strangely...

Caroline B said...

That first creature looks like it is begging to be put out of it's misery...Dr. Moreau strikes again.

That's not a crap-hound (I have two of those at home..) it's obviously a mole......made of crap......hmmmmm

zooborns said...

Well done Cake Wrecks... but where is the majestic and elusive Fennec Hare - http://bit.ly/INMcn ?

Nic said...

That first one is interesting. :)

I actually feel bad for the hound. It looks so sad. I do love the random patches of grass around it, though.

Emily said...

Hahaha! When I saw the "Majestic Coiled Crap Hound" I instantly started singing "Single Ladies" in my head!

If you like it then you should have put a ring on it....

Lucia said...

oh my! thoes are beyond gross!

Becky said...

Am I the only one who thinks the Majestic Three-Toed Four-Eyed Whiskered Zebra Toad is kinda cute in a disturbing, mutated sort of way? Though I see it as more of a strange (and terrified, for perfectly understandable reasons) zebra-frog-mouse hybrid...

Lucille Ball said...

Laughing my face off!

Just Me,Pilgrim said...

I feel like I've been visiting the zoo....
on Jupiter.
I don't know which one I like the best.... its a toss up between the Newt (I love disco) and the Zebra Toad.

Your names of the animals rock!!

S3XinthePantry said...

Coiled crap hound?

I'm going to have nightmares!

Aw, I like the disco newt/turtle. He looks like that old electronic game "Simon", where the colored buttons would light up in some order and you had to hit them in the same order.

Laura said...

Hi! I was at the NY sardine can yesterday evening, and it was great to meet you both! My one regret is not asking John to do his Swedish Chef impression. I love me some Bork Bork Bork!!!

Lauren S. said...

Ahh! This was one of the funniest things I have ever read! My husband and I were practically in tears, we were laughing so hard. Brilliant!

A lot of these look like they need to just give in and ring down the curtain and join the bleeding choir invisibule!

Duncan said...

Are we sure the coild craphound isn't a Puli?

Anonymous said...

I like Meg's idea of a name takes the, uh, cake. The craphound shall forever be "Turdadillo" in my mind. Now if only I could get it out of my mind.

I think the four-eyed zebra toad must be a dalmation, right? Right? Please tell me they had some real creature in mind when they made this.

Famous Hat said...

I think the disco newt is kind of cute. The other ones are just..???

WV: kentre. I kentre cognize any of these animals.

The Spanish Inquisitor said...

The Majestic Disco Newt is my definite favourite. It has nothing to do with the excellently placed Monty Python reference :D

Prism said...

What do you get when you cross a mole, an armadillo, a pig and a LARGE bottle of laxatives?

A Coiled Crap Hound!

Melissa (& Billy) said...

I love the Disco Newt! I'd give it a good home.

The others? Oh, dear. I hope they're the last of their species, because they need to be extinct (especially the first one!).

Laura (in PA) said...

Holy Crap! er, hound.

Bek said...

What really creeps me out about that last one is that it almost looks like if you were to spin the cake board around, you would be greeted by yet another face. Perhaps they had a motherload of white and black icing to use up?

Turdadillo for sure on Crap Hound.

And the poor bagel-nosed falcon looks afraid of itself; almost as if it's just peeked a glance in the mirror and thought, "Good God, what is that thing?"

ryber said...

Am I the only one who sees a bit of human anatomy to the right side of the bagel face?

Anonymous said...

Let me be the 50th to say it, The Majestic Disco Newt ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mella said...

Majestic Dicso Newt looks like a toy I once had

Anonymous said...

I thought it was pretty telling when my very imaginative 4 and 6 year olds came up and asked me "Mom, what is that?" as I viewed the first one and then just looked more and more confused as I scrolled down!

Great post, as ALWAYS!

WV: reddiest - Bakery owner to employee: Did you finish those animal cakes? Wreckerator to boss: Yeah, but I think the brown dog will be reddiest if I add some grass.

Kimberly Chapman said...

I'm glad I'm not the only one to have spotted the Pythonism, but really, it needs to be written in the accent. So as a tribute to usenet days of old:


ITYM

boo'iful plumage!

(PS You can go nerd-fishing even amongst a group of RPGers by naming your character Notlob, and then find the true hard-core nerds by who responds that that's not a palindrome either.)

Lauren said...

They are all so cute! Wrecktastic, yes, but cute!

Erm, except for maybe the coiled-crap-hound. I'd have to give him away to my hairstylist.

WV: tersi... a possible name for the bagel-nosed little critter?

Anna said...

One of your best posts. EVAH!
My fave is the cute Disco Newt. Even the words Disco Newt are hella cute.
I could read a hundred of those! More, more, moooooooore!

As a Texan, I can tell you with complete confidence that the third critter is an armadillo. However, that is still no excuse. - Kate B.

Is the craphound being served up with a garnish of parsley? That shows excellent taste.

disco newt looks like a beachball! lol and my boyfriend had so much fun last night he is now a reader!! lol thanks!

Emily said...

These are all so fabulous, but I'm thinking that the Majestic Coiled Crap Hound might actually be the lesser known PooPotamus. I mean, it's fat, low to the ground.... Just sayin'.

Etiquette Bitch said...

Love the names. These are craptacular.

The bagel-nosed whatever made me think of that Office episode in which Charles first visited the Scranton office, and to "welcome" him, Michael bought bagels and ripped out a bit of each one to make the bagels look like Cs. (For "charles." get it?)

ugh!

Dennis said...

Hey! That coiled wrinkly dog is no Shar-Pei! That's a Shar-Poo!

Andi said...

This just made my day. Learning about new species, my favorite being Simon the Majestic Disco Newt (I still giggle every time I see it), AND some well-placed Pythonisms? Love it. LOVE. Keep up the awesome work, Jen and John!!

elissa said...

Best yet! I'm sure my cube neighbor is wondering why I'm laughing so loud. I'm usually either very quiet or grumbling about something.

Love the Zebra Toad.

The only ones I could really make a guess at what they were supposed to be were the first one (fish, as suggested) and the Crap Hound, which I think might be supposed to be a mole.

WV: whabi--Whabi that cake, man? It don't look like nuttin' to me!

Melinda said...

And here I thought the first one was a sheep!

Sarah said...

Eeeeee!

I actually really like the bagel-nosed falcon and the disco newt. They have...character.

The green food coloring was certainly not speridd in decorating the Roadrunner's St. Patrick's Day outfit.

Cynthia A. said...

Hmmm...that Coiled Crap Hound bears a remarkable resemblance to a morbidly obese dachshund that I've met. Her legs couldn't keep her up either - so sad, a slow kill with kindness.

Love the names, just about spit my coffee at the CCH moniker!

WATERBABY CHRISTINE said...

Re: the first, uh, cake: Would I be right in thinking that it would be in incredibly bad taste (heh!) to make a reference to Michael Jackson? OK, I won't then.

Is it just me or does the bagel-nosed creature look like he's begging you to spare his life? Is PETA behind this cake?

I think the coiled crap hound is supposed to be an armadillo..perhaps a cousin of the coiled crap hound.

True Anecdote from Last Night in NYC:

A man saw all of us crowded into the tiny event space and asked Kyle (the bookstore events coordinator) what kind of event it was. Kyle replied, "The book is called "Cake Wrecks." The man asked, "Is this book of a metaphysical nature?"

I've got to say the Newt reminds me of that Simon game...

I think this is the first time I've posted on here. MAJESTIC COILED CRAP HOUND!!! That is the funniest thing ever! I was dying laughing. I think this is my new exclamatory remark. My friends and I do really dumb ones like saying Noodles! or something equally lame on purpose. Now I have Majestic Coiled Crap Hound! Thank you Cake Wrecks!

The brown thing has to be a "turdle".

My son and I also had the first impression of the Simon game upon seeing the Disco Newt. However, it was the toad-thing that did us both in. My ice cream nearly was splattered across the monitor and not only did I laugh so hard I cried, but my sides now ache as well! From one who works in a zoo, thanks for your best "animal" post yet!

Is the not-so-majestic crap hound meant to be an armadillo? The Happy Chicken-Footed Spiny-Backed Slime Devil meant to be a *shudder* crocodile. And although it is colourful enough to have us c*&^ing crayons is the Disco Newt a turtle?

That's not a coiled craphound! That's a tardigrade or waterbear, one of the world's hardiest living species! Of course, it seems to have lost its middle set of legs, but you'll agree the resemblance is impressive.

My 3 year old says that the 'Majestic Bagel-Nosed Falcon of Uganda!' cake is a sheep in a fish tank, of course.

The Majestic Three-Toed Four-Eyed Whiskered Zebra Toad I think is actually doing something "unmentionable". It is 2 "animals" not one as far as I can tell. I know for us foodies cake is sexual...but not in that sense of the word!

The dog actually looks like an armadillo because of the coiled-ness. :)
