The Cake Wrecks Correlation

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

As part of our on-going research into what makes things funny (and because it was a slow Friday night), John and I recently decided to test the effects of alcohol on humor writing. To save both time and Arbor Mist, I was elected test subject. (Even the fumes get me tipsy. It's pathetic, really.) John then showed me Wrecks, took notes, and laughed at me. A lot.

Wait, I'm getting ahead of myself. Here are the "official" results:


After five sips:


Subject response: "Talk about your seedy humor: I've heard of calling someone a melon-head before, but this is ridiculous!" [attempts to high-five official note-taker] "Booyah!"



After approx. 1/2 glass:


Subject response: [apparently attempting to impersonate Bill Cosby] "FI-BRRR!! FI-BRRR!! AHAHAHAHA-HAAA!"



After one glass:


Subject response: [singing] "PANT-ies, PANT-ies, tralala-LAAA. Wesh shoulda had PANTIES at our engager-mental party." [giggling] "Yeah." [Silence. Then...] "Why don't shou luff me? Thish ish MY job! Zshoo don't care about me!"


After two glasses:



Subject response: *HURK* *HUURK* *BLAAGAHGAHGAHGAH!!!!*


After 2 glasses and 10 minutes:


Subject response: *ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ*


(Official Note-Taker's Note: At this point the test was concluded.)


So, our conclusion? We desperately need some better wine. And possibly - although this needs further testing to be absolutely sure - some kind of a social life.

You're welcome, scientific community.


Rebecca M., Michael Z., Anony M., & Heather G., I would guess that last thing isn't actually a cake - but it is most certainly a Wreck. Also, are any of you free this weekend?

I think the PANT-ies one was my favorite.

Bill Cosby, Himself said...

"Well that's the brain damage!"

Kaaren said...

What IS that last thing? Are there peppers in it?

5thsister said...

turds on a cake, turds on a cake, lookin' like a fool with yo' turds on a cake!

Um, pass the wine. Maybe it will help me forget these wrecks! LOL!

Hannah said...

I am pretty sure that last cake seems to have jalepenos on it..... uck.

Michelle P. said...

Wreck #4, no wine (yet), and my response was exactly the same....

I seriously don't want to know anything more about that one.

Ferralyn said...

I shudder to think what all those...um...vegetables? and...uh... sausages? are embedded in in that last cake.

And the "tragic fire at the circus" cake made me giggle. I like to hope that perhaps the clown did not escape.

vanessa aleji said...

What a wonderful way to start my day! Thank you for being the guinea pig in this "test."

Jordan said...

umm, are there jalapenos and dried tomatoes on that turd tower cake??

Anonymous said...

that last cake is the stuff of nightmares. What the heck is it supposed to be?!

Gary said...

I never thought I'd be saying anything like this, but that panties CCC is actually the best of the lot. (Shudder.)

Miranda said...

I think you should switch to high quality vodka. If I tried getting toasted on Arbor Mist, I'd be horking too. ;)

What's the last one? Three Mile Island? Chernobyl?

JoMama said...

What the heck IS that last "cake" (and I use that term loosely)?? It looks like someone scraped the bottom of their garbage can and put it on a plate. With little sausages (or are those fingers??) on top. Absolutely disgusting!

Jasry said...

Heck, that last... thing... would have made anyone *HURK* *HUURK* *BLAAGAHGAHGAHGAH!!!!*, no matter what you were (or weren't) drinking.
Dang.

alishajune said...

the poo-pillar mess of whatever has left me speechless.

Sharon said...

/looks at last cake

O.O

/forgets all about all the previous cakes

Who ordered the chocolate dipped hotdogs, burnt candy cake with the words spelled out in sundried tomatoes?

'Fess up now and we will be merciful!

Not really, but it saves us the trouble of forming a torch waving mob and hunting you down.

Sarah M. Anderson said...

I'm trying to figure out not only what that last thing was, but what, exactly, your reaction to it really was.

Sarah M. Anderson

word: trampes, as in "Only trampes eat thong cakes."

Auntie Meme said...

@Hannah--I was thinking jalapenos also. Or perhaps okra.

That last one doesn't even qualify as a cake. No way, no how. Offend-the-NEA/NEH art maybe.

One Girl in All The World said...

Sausages, bananas, prunes, peppers, etc on cake? WTH? I don't even want to know. No, wait a minute, I DO want to know - can you tell us the story behind this one? Is it a cake revenge story? Trying to make the neighbour's dog throw up story? What?

ACM said...

When I saw the panties one, the first thing I thought was: "Is that a uterus?" Which makes maybe about as much sense as a panties CCC for an engagement party, I guess.

Momcat said...

I actually thought that first one was kind of cute, but then I haven't had any alcohol yet. If I had, I would have spat it all over the monitor when I saw the "panties" cake. So funny! Would have given it up forever for that last horror, assuming that it was a figment of my booze-addled imagination! What on earth did the customer request?

WATERBABY CHRISTINE said...

Panties, you say. In that case, someone is in dire need of a Brazilian wax job.

laura said...

Hahahaha This test is oozing AWESOME!

flying gargoyle said...

The panties are great. But, just what IS that last cake?! I'd try to make a joke about it being a commentary on neo-post-industrialization, but I can't identify ANYthing on that cake! Is it edible?

A Girl In Her Kitchen said...

Hopefully, that last one is a meatloaf, I'm really hoping. It still is nausea-inducing, no matter what!

Casey said...

That last one makes me want to hurl. Fun experiment!

Megan said...

I also REALLY want to know what is going on with that last cake. It looks like there were malted milkballs on the side that have fallen apart (or been eaten open?), but I can't tell for sure.

Inquiring minds want to know!

Nancie said...

That was completely hilarious! And even stone cold sober, I have to add that I completely agree with your comment on the third cake. Whhhaaaaa???????

The Mom said...

It's a penis forest cake with Jalapeno peppers, prunes and sea weed on the sides, submerged in what appears to be oozing poop. Just sayin'.

Donna said...

Ok, I think the panties cake is actually a cupcake cake and trying to mimic a heart...although without the usual pink/red heart motif. Otherwise, if those are panties, that is gonna be some bachelor/bachelorette party! You may want to try partying with them. As for the last monstrosity, I am at a loss for words...*shakes head*

Anonymous said...

Love the Bill Cosby reference! I used to be able to quote whole parts of that routine.

That last "cake" looks like it has chocolate covered hot dogs on it!?!?!? Eeeuwwwww!

NewsCat said...

I thought the world of cake wreck blogging was all high glamour and drama. I saw you guys during the book tour, I can't believe you don't have an ultra-cool circle of friends.

Katrina said...

I seriously think that last one must have caught on fire. It really looks like it was put on the table and the candles ignited it. I'm not even going to comment on those "pillars" in the middle.

Kelly said...

This is why I don't drink. Thanks for drinking for me. Let's hope it's worth the hangover.

The first cake looks like Cling and Clang from H.R. Pufnstuf. The last "cake" - I've got nothing. It's just so wrong in so very many ways. I do think it's funny that, in my head, your hurking sounded just like a cat-hurk.

GeekGirl said...

I am hoping that the engagement cake is actually supposed to be a heart, that went horribly wrong. Better to blame the wreckerators than the poor taste of the schmo that ordered that.

Heidi said...

I believe that the "towers" on the last one are pickles. Look at the one that is glinting in the light and you can see the little bumpies on it. Not that knowing that improves the "cake" any...

madrobins said...

What on earth was that last one? It looked like--at dead minimum--it had slices of jalapeno pepper around the sides. To say nothing of whatever the, um, vertical structural elements were. The thing that's scary is that, looking at it, you know the maker had a plan. You suspect the maker might have been an Alien.

Anonymous said...

Was the last one made by the "artist" who torched a pathetic excuse for a birthday cake on Food Network?

TechyDad said...

I'm just picturing what went into making that cake. Two cake decorators walk into a grocery store. One blindfolds the other, spins him around a bit and says "Ok, now the first thing you touch goes on our cake."

Blindfolded decorator wanders over to the fruits aisle where they're having a sale on dried prunes. He knocks into it, toppling the entire display over.

Then they alternate crushing some jalapenos, a sausage display, etc until they have everything they need for their "perfect" cake.

LetThemEatCake said...

The last cake is obviously an homage to Freud - hot dogs, bananas, and all.

-word: pueyeou - what u say when looking at that cake.

Monica said...

I'm going to add the alcohol estimates to the fire cake. I mean really--white cake and peanut butter frosting?! Blech!

wundermary said...

My God, the humanity!

jo said...

1) is that someone eating watermelon so voraciously they've buried their face (and nose) in it? or is it a blonde robber wearing a bandana around his face like a mask?

2) why is the party on fire? Is this a fire safety week cake with a harsh warning to kids?

3) smile? panties? boomerang? wtf?

4) MAJOR WTF? erect chocolate hotdogs on a sea of dried fruit in chocolate? looks like a garbage dump. what IS that thing? (hide me!)

BellaLovesPink said...

What in the hell is that last monstrosity?! Bean dip?

Oo-oo said...

March of the turds

Terri said...

how big were those glasses of wine ;)
....and why are there cigars in that last cake?

Robin said...

I really shouldn't check this blog while I'm eating lunch...

Or maybe I should. I could lose some weight.

jazz bird said...

Whoever did that last one was on much more than Arbor Mist. *shudder*

ComfyDenim said...

Ahahahahaha Thanks for taking one (or several) for the team.

The panties one was my favorite -- but that last one?? That was enough to make a sober person hurl.

Pretzels??
Peppers?
Bananas?

*GAG* *heave*

Maybe the last one was made for a chocoholic who needed aversion therapy.

Melanie T. said...

When science projects turn hilarious! LOL

That last one looks like Loreena Bobbitt's birthday cake. It appears she didn't stop with her husband who coincidentally was named John if I recall correctly. Hmmmm.

I'm with ACM... I saw "blue uterus"

Amanda said...

LOL with the last cake! Literally Laughed out loud. My 6 year old was like, What's so funny? Love you guys!

thesacredandtheprofane said...

Arbor Mist? Well. Aren't you hoity toity? For a science experiment of this nature, I'd think Boone's Farm or Mad Dog 20/20 would be more in order. But then you have to go all high falutin and hit the Arbor Mist? I am so disappointed.

noneya said...

Is that last one "turd-henge" WTH!

pmhrh said...

Seriously? I need to know more about that last one. The vomit-turd cake has me perplexed.

These Wrecks were so Wrecky, I thought I was the one drinking!

Mmm. Arbor Mist. The wine that doubles as a breakfast beverage.

WV: extro - The balloons on the flame cake added that extro-special touch.

Jess R. said...

I find that when I write while intoxicated by Patron that the quality of my writing goes up, while the quality of my grammar and punctuation ability goes down. So later, when I'm sober, I have to go back over it to fix all the redundancies and punctuation errors. But the alcohol makes me less afraid to say what I really want to say, especially when writing fiction. Maybe this is why so many writers become alcoholics! At least I'm not going "Hmm...I need to write something, how about a shot of tequila" it's more the opposite..."Hmm...I've had a shot of tequila and am feeling feisty...how about I write?" :D Better than getting into some kind of trouble!

Lil said...

I laughed so hard out loud at this entry, my neighbor (who I work with and will see all day tomorrow) banged on the wall. This site is dangerous to look at at 2:20 in the morning.

msflyerswife said...

Definitely one of the most hilarious posts ever. I believe your conclusion is flawed, however. You two are doing just fine with Arbor Mist. Now it's John's turn to be the "subject"....

Lizard said...

I also saw blue uterus!!

I think the last one must be for one of those blasphemers who do not like cake - I imagine it is some sort of meatloaf type dish.

I have seen some very pretty cakeless cakes that were of the meatloaf variety. The were "frosted" with mashed potatoes and had lettering done in ketchup.
They did not have poo towers.

Monica said...

When I clicked on the picture of #4, the name included "state+fair". I have a feeling that one really isn't a "Wreck" by definition if it was included as a state fair entrant for something (and I don't WANT to know what!)

msflyerswife said...

One of your most hilarious posts ever. I must disagree with your conclusion. Arbor Mist seems to make the subject more funny...I think you need more testing though. Perhaps it's John's turn to be the subject.

deemack said...

I don't know...I had almost the same response to that last one sitting at my desk, sober!

Elizabee said...

The last one is an ode to all things that make you poo. Prunes, peppers, sundried tomatoes. You know.

Melissa (& Billy) said...

LOL That Bill Cosby show is one of my favorites ever. "I'M GOING OUT BECAUSE I DESERVE TO GO OUT! I'M GOING TO GET DRUNK BECAUSE I DESERVE TO GET DRUNK! SO GET OUT OF MY WAY!"

...it certainly looks like SOMEONE was drunk when they put together that last...whatever the heck it is. 0_o

Fran said...

Are those dolmas on the last one?

Emily said...

And I thought that one of the guys I know had a low alcohol tolerance... that's an astonishingly low tolerance.

I'm not even old enough to drink, and I want to so I can forget ever seeing that last "cake" there. **shudders**

Lesli said...

Love the panties one! Disturbed by the last one. A turd fence?

@techydad--great theory!

love the Bill Cosby reference. At first, I thought you were being a really sloppy (speechwise) drunk, until I realized it was from the dentist segment where he had novacaine. funny!

Wally said...

Okay, so... could the person who submitted the last cake please stand up and tell us what the heck it actually is, or what it's made of? All I see when I look at it is some kind of alien larvae. Ewwww.

Jenn said...

That last one...gahh. Prunes, jalapenos, and ho-ho's? Really? Uhhh...wow.

As a "fruity" wine drinker myself I wanted to pass a delicious wine flavor on to you...its called "Bare Foot" flavor is White Zin. Its not dry or bitter - very smooth - and can't beat the $6 or $8 price (and it has the cutest little pink baby foot on it!) Also - I am new to your site (thanks to Sleep Talkin' Man as they have your site as one of their favorites) and I absoutly LOVE your site!! I read your "fireman" story and forwarded it to my husband - we were crying with laughter!! Thanks for the much needed joy!!

See, I didn't see panties.. I totally saw a uterus. And what the hell is that last thing?

The last one is a meat cake. In other words, a low-carb alternative!

Boy George said...

Cake #4 reminded me of one of my favorite dishes in James Lileks' The Gallery of Regrettable Food (one of the funniest books I have ever read); a picture of that entry can be found on the first page of the chapter "When It's Strictly Stag". Look up the book in Amazon and browse through the "Look inside the book" feature. Unfortunately Lileks' hilarious description of the dish isn't included on the site.

Etiquette Bitch said...

Blechh! Esp. the last CW. That just looks like sh**cake.

The Black Dog said...

The only thing that would have made this better was audio or video of the commentary.

I'm imagining that Jen was singing about the PANTies cake.

Mary said...

That last "Cake" and I say cake because I am guessing that's what it is.....is a true nightmnare. What the heck is it suppossed to be? And seriously, jalapenos?

Gary said...

That last one looks like it has a wide assortment of fruits and vegetables in various stages of dessication, plus whatever those erect things in the middle may be (sausages? chocolate-covered bananas? really ugly cucumbers?).

So my best guess is that it's one of those special cakes that zoos make for star animals when they want to celebrate something like Milo the Tortoise's 400th Birthday. Probably incorrect, but I've got to come up with some theory that will let me hold on to my sanity.

BTW, that last cake is probably a birthday cake for a dog. Or a bear. Or some other carnivorous animal.

I'm desperately hoping.

I actually screeched in FEAR when I saw the last thing?!
Chocolate frosting.. and vegetables?! PICKLES?!

I threw up in my mouth a little.. *hurk*

Karasu said...

There is something sprinkled around the last cake that may be oats, but at first glance they looked like *ahem* "acorns" [read Corn Nuts] to me. That, in turn, made me think of the infamous Kwanzaa Cake.

I believe the last cake is actually a perversion of a perversion [said Kwanzaa Cake].

Wow.... just wow.... *bemused face palm while snickering*

Anonymous said...

So my 5-year-old twins weren't much better in figuring out what these messes were:

1) spaghetti, whipped cream, chocolate tears, and red spaghetti (they couldn't see the watermelon this face is evidently hiding behind)

2) flames and balloons (okay, that was accurate, just no explanation why fire is streaking sideways across the cake at balloons)

3) underwear OR a strangely colored heart with swirls

4) WHAAAT? just a mess--no other explanation; why are there chocolate-dipped hotdogs on it?

WV: horake--the only implement suitable for disposing of that last mess (certainly not a fork, knife, or spoon!)

Is the title of this post a Big Bang Theory reference?

If someone tried to make me eat a piece of the turd cake I'd claim I was suddenly sick with H1N1 or Anthrax or the Montezuma was after me for revenge......EWWWWW!!!!

Katie said...

Where did that last one come from? There's a competition at the Iowa State Fair (and, presumably, other fairs) every year for the last 10 or 15 for "ugly cakes." Originally, it was intended to be cake fails- ones that collapsed, or didn't decorate well, or whatever. But kids started entering with truly unappetizing cakes- diaper cakes, toilet cakes, draped in anything and everything totally disgusting. This looks like a perfect candidate for that category.

I think the first one is kind of cute, actually. Weird, but cute.

ThursdayWeld said...

That's a Meat Cake (very popular here in the carnivorous Midwest). It most likely has layers of meat, veggies (hopefully roasted) and some kind of potato. A friend made one for her hubby's birthday and even frosted and piped edges out of mashed potatoes! It was AWESOME. It didn't look nearly as nasty as that thing!

Gary said...

Lara, I was about to have a conniption when I realized the last cake WON A BLUE RIBBON at the Iowa State Fair, but then I realized it won the "Ugliest Cake" contest.

Lucky for that baker that some of the baby and wedding cakes from Cake Wrecks weren't entered in the competition. Not to mention some of the "diseased and/or mutilated foot" cakes.

Tatersmama said...

Holy mother of cod fishes!!!! What IS that last thing? It looks like some kind of post-apocalyptic weinie roast from hell - with fruit and sprinkles!

HUURK! I think I'll by-pass the coffee this morning, and go straight to the Pepto Bismal...

serns said...

I'd have loved to see the one with the probably choc-covered bananas in higher resolution. I'm thinking maybe the mystery things around the borders are dried fruit, so it might actually taste better than most of the sheet cakes that happen at work.

I'm pretty sure the sausage/tomato/jalapeño cake was not intended to be eaten. It looks for all the world like an avant-garde art installation created as commentary on the gluttony of Western society...or something.

If it's not actually a cake what the hell IS it?

Peppers and Olives and Chocolate covered bananas. These are a few of my favorite things...(all on my cake?)

That last 'cake'...
Let's see... from the right it's prunes, banana slices, garbanzo beans?, hot dogs, red pepper rings, ginger slices?, prunes... Hot peppers on the sides...oatmeal scattered at the front around the icing smear (bushes?) ...

A Southwestern theme from one of those old 1950s cookbooks?

As funny as I find the idea of chocolate-covered hot dogs, those things sticking out of the last "cake" are definitely pickles.

All I've been able to find is that it won first place at the Iowa State Fair in the "ugly cake" category.

If anyone finds more information, please post it! I'd love to know what else is in that thing.
