We Learned Good!

Friday, June 11, 2010

Today, we be having's a celebiation of learnir!

(Note: typing that last sentence was actually painful. See what I go through for you?)


Did anyone check with the Sumerians first?
Maybe they're not happy, is all I'm saying.


Wreckerators, can we misspell a three letter word?

YES, WE CAN!


[rubbing temples] Oh, my head... Maybe we should take a break from these wrecked misspellings and look at some wrecked designs instead.


"Gradution Dayn"?
Dang it, they're everywhere!
(I wonder if Amy noticed.)

We should also talk about those long tube thingies, though. I mean, what are they? Garden hoses? Elephant noses? Flagella?

(You must admit: flagella was a pretty good guess.)

[head tilt]
Hmm...

Ok.

I see a cow...with a beaver tail...and a gunshot wound.

You?



I have two things to say about these graduation cookies:


1) This is definitely the most unfortunate alternate spelling/icing color combo I have ever seen.

2) Using "text speak" to celebrate an educational accomplishment is like celebrating your SCUBA certification by drowning puppies. STOP IT.


Brooke B. & Amy F., Sarah M., Margo H., Lin C., Nastacia I., & Holly I., Njoy UR sumers!
Jenn said...

That icing and spelling combo is unfortunate indeed. :D

Trevor said...

Oh. My. Gosh. These are AWESOME. As is your writing, as per usual. I'm having a crappy, stressful day at 9:40 am already. Thanks for a much needed lift to my day.

May Ur DRMS Cum Tru!

Jenniffer said...

On the "Dayn" cake, especially with the cupcakes bump outlines, all I can see are intestines! YUK!!

Anonymous said...

Please tell me those are mini-donuts (just the CCC gone rogue)! Pleeeeaaase tell me there isn't a baker in the world who feels that is a satisfactory cake shape! If not... if not... then... ALL IS LOST! *on that note, goes back to enjoy "Lost" wrecks*

Colette said...

I think those long things are some kind of curly diploma ... although that begs the question of why there are little paper diplomas on top of them

Cara said...

I'm pretty conviced that number 4 is tape worms. Eww.

Doug Warren said...

Don't make fun of the cookies. They are the traditional celebratory pastry of the Stackapoo tribe, of which I am a member.

Alissa said...

That cookie cake almost works if it is for an obedience school class and that's a dog on a red leash - that mysteriously comes out of the center of his body.

But I have no words that can possibly justify that last one!

Valerie said...

I almost spewed my coffee on the eclairs or whatever they are. OMG, that icing with that spelling! That's the only one I'm not sending to school with my husband (he teaches gifted 5th graders); they LOVE cake wrecks... it makes 'em feel even smarter.

Jamie said...

Wow. Unfortunate is an understatement.

So, erm, I don't know if this makes me old, or mildly prudish, or entirely out of touch (or possibly all of the above), but is 'cum' *really* a commonly used text abbreviation for 'come'? Or is that just wreckerator humor/brain deadedness?

My husband and I are fanatics about using proper spelling and punctuation in our texts, which I guess makes me old. Still in my twenties, and already I'm no longer hip with the lingo.

Mike said...

That last one is great. "Using text-speak to celebrate an educational accomplishment is like celebrating your SCUBA certification by drowning puppies" has to be the best one-liner ever. I love it. I also would note that ur is typical text-speak for your, yr is short for year.

Gary said...

Oh, oh, oh.
Celebiation of learnir, indeed.
You have outdone yourself today, Jen.

I think "flagella" is the plural of "flagellum."

Actually, I can't decide whether that CCC is meant to be two segmented worms, or two intestinal sections.

"Happy Sumer!" must have been for someone's Bon Voyage party upon leaving for Sumer (modern Iraq). All the other strange stuff on that cake is a not-very-successful attempt at cuneiform writing.

"You dit it!" is a clever pun celebrating someone's mastery of Morse code, which, when spoken is expressed as "dits" and "dahs," as in "dit dit dit, dah dah dah, dit dit dit," which means, "Send help."

Class of 2010? Yep, cow with a beaver tail and a gunshot wound it is.

As for "MAY YR DRMS CUM TRU GRAD'IO" ... words fail me, as they obviously did that wreckorator.

Connie Moreno said...

Can't....breathe....laughin..ing...too...hard....

Marcie said...

"Using 'text speak' to celebrate an educational accomplishment is like
celebrating your SCUBA certification by drowning puppies. STOP IT." Best. Quote. Ever. I was going to type "Evah", but that didn't seem prudent.

john (the hubby of Jen) said...

Gary,

I prefer flagellumses.

Noni Mausa said...

You probably didn't know, but the "class of 2010 cow with beaver tail" is actually a Woodland style Indian depiction of the life essence of a bear coming out to enliven the world. Like this: http://www.kinsmanrobinson.com/dynamic/images/display/Norval_Morrisseau_Fish_And_Bear_Harmon_876_399.jpg

See the resemblance?

Tricia L said...

Though I'm sure the idea was "cap and tassel", that sure looks like a black bear ... with a gunshot wound.

I remember when I got my graduation tape worm. Ah, those were the days!

Melinda said...

Didn't like the drowning puppies mention.

Other than that, hilarious.

Kaet said...

Bwahahaha! Beaver-tailed cows with gunshot wounds. To be perfectly honest, I saw some sort of medical-style diagram at first-- "So instert probe along this path until it reaches the ideal target location, indicated here with a red dot". Not much better...

Momcat said...

Fully managed to keep coffee in mouth until heard from Doug of the Stackapoo tribe. Now need screen wipes.

WV: "liablit"
If you graduated despite these spelling deficiencies, I guess your teachers had to liablit.

etiquette bitch said...

RE: CW4: I am reminded of the famous "fireman" cake. At least "Congratulations" was spelled correctly.

CW5: I'm thinking the recipient graduated from Ag College?

Re: CW6: ooh, sexual and offensive. Yikes.

M. Mcgough said...

OH MY Jen!!! that last comment ALMOST got coffee spewed all over my monitor! (it got on the keyboard way cheaper to replace) thanks for the laugh

Textspeak is a symbol of the degradation of the English language. It makes me sad.

Kathy said...

My mother actually used to teach a communications class. I'd occasionally help her grade tests when she had bigger classes. I told her I quit and I "fired" her when she let someone slide who answered a freeform question in text speak.

Jenni @ Project Cookie 365 said...

Flagella! Hah. That has to be the most random guess you've ever made about a cake! (and thus, my favourite! Love it!)

The text speak makes my head and heart hurt just a little bit.

msyendor said...

Those aren't diplomas on the worms, those are the mouth pieces for a hookah. Y'know, a little weeding and lighting ...

Which would help explain these wrecks.

Quisty said...

LMAO. Oh my. My thought was worms. Graduation worms. Which makes perfect sense, of course.

And there are simply no words needed for the "cum" cookies. Especially given the icing used for the text.

Wow.

Becky said...

I have GOT to stop looking at this while I'm at work - it's seriously all I can do not to laugh out loud!!!

Liz-a-nator said...

Yep. That's definitely a cow up there.

jo-i-can't-believe-i'm-claiming-this-post said...

"I see a cow...with a beaver tail...and a gunshot wound."
LMAO That's hilarious! and I totally see it! I love Rorschach icing blots.

Meanwhile, maybe Amy is graduating from snake charming school.

are those kidney bean things cookies or conjoined cupcakes?? I thought I saw the edge of a wrapper on the top one...And not to state the obvious, but isn't "cum" a vulgar spelling? Just what are those letters iced with? *GAG* Drms = dreams? are these wet dreams? what kind of dreams are we wishing for this grad to come true? (or is it brad? or bradio? is this really a graduation?) It would be really suggestive if the You Dit It cake "came" after

YR + your? year? yer? text abbreviations should NOT be allowed. Especially since I think your = UR anyway!

wv: seikk This post made me seikk!

HOW do you misspell THREE LETTER WORDS? Wheare are these idiots coming form? er, from? ;P

they dit it again to-dayn

Kate said...

Actually, I think the last picture is more accurate than at first glance. A lot of grads probably hope their dreams "cum" true. And dream of it often.

kmawesome said...

so i guess for that last disaster, perhaps it is a puberty cake? seriuosly "cum" on a cake with goopy white icing.

i also love the scuba reference.

at least these keep me edumacated..need to go look up what flagella means.

fun and educational...well done

vw:plazed "these wreckorators need to be plazed back in elementary spelling class.

NYCGirl said...

I saw a Scottie dog, but beaver-tailed bleeding bovine does seem to be more accurate.

Christina said...

I think the 'tubes' look more like sections of intestine. Scrumptious.

catchat105 said...

Upon first glance I didn't see the cap, only the front half of a cow, too! And I guess beaver tail is a good way of describing it. I laughed at the gunshot wound part. Hopefully that wreck of a cow is in a better place now.

As for the cookies.... uh.... *insert something witty and dry/disgusted here*

Emily said...

I believe that the intestines/tape worms are really BOOKWORMS, since I guess you must be a bookworm to be graduating. Still, they are the creepiest bookworms that I have ever seen.

T said...

definitely a cow!

and I recall seeing something like those long noodly things in my anatomy text a long time ago... just one of the reasons that I chose to NOT go into health care.

Shannon said...

Is it "We Learned Good!" or is it "We Learnt Well!"?

caferacers66 said...

Wow. just wow. no need to elaborate though man I would like to but I am exercising some discipline .. though I do agree very unfortunate icing /word/abbreviation choice. wow.

Kaytee said...

Good lord Jen. I cannot, canNOT believe how hard you make me laugh. Favorite line of the day:

Using "text speak" to celebrate an educational accomplishment is like celebrating your SCUBA certification by drowning puppies. STOP IT.

I read it, laughed until I cried, got myself under control, read it, laughed until I cried... it's a vicious cycle... that I LOVE.

You're the best.

Maybe those loooong noodles are the foam noodles kids whack each other with at the swimming pool; and they are anticipating a fun summer? I cungradurate the person who wreckcognized the grad cap. In all these are prize. Norine

Sarah said...

On #3 I thought you were talking about the "it" at first. To me "it" looks like "II".

Mental quip: "You're doing 'it' wrong."

Some Random Person said...

Thank goodness you came to the rescue by assuming those things were Flagella!!! I mean, they look like bloody tape worm to me!!!

Heidi said...

Hilarious! Mithspellings are always the best!

And I have to thank Doug of the Stackapoo tribe for his comments. Perhaps he should be a featured guest on the blog because that was perfect!

Jeanette said...

The flagella? I see: tapeworms.


For that mental image, I am very sorry. But not enough. >.>

China said...

Dang it! I can never get here before the first 50 comments. Or should I say "git hear"?
I think instead of "you dit it" they meant "Oh no you dit'nt!"

And the cow with wound looks like a diagram of a dog expelling a tape worm.

Drowning puppies!!! ROFL!

bassgirl said...

Maybe the "You dit it" cake had something to do with Morse Code, using dits and dots....or maybe not.

~Nikki~ said...

Once again... can we please start using dictionaries or even Google to check spelling?! How can you call your work professional if you don't even spell it right? And the one who messed up on the word DID... i truly have no words for you. Gave me a good laugh though...

check out my blog: nikkiscakery.blogspot.com

Darling Clementine said...

Yep, I definitely saw tape worms too. Flagella was a great guess though!

Mandy said...

I know 2 ppl who spell their first name SUMER (pronounced summer) maybe they are celebrating them?

Anonymous said...

The dit ditn't surprise me because that's how people pronounce it around these parts. Dit = did, and ditn't = didn't. Even our local tv anchor says ditn't! Gasp.
Excellent post as always, thanks you guys!

Oh. Cap and tassle. wow. my head was tilting before I read "head tilt". (then I giggled)

The long windie thingies... I think they're those tubey things that you wave around to make noise. (just a guess)

mah drms are cummin tru!

john said...

#2: I thought the Sumerians were wiped out millenia ago, so if that's leftovers from their last party...

#3: The mockery for thit one has been completely inadequate. What dit they do? Graduate from tombstone carving trade school? And the skill wit whit der wreckor smootted teh brown frotting? and the elegant primary colort smearts?

#4: It's not "Dayn". The extraneous squiggles, applied lovingly like dancing pinworms on infested intestines, simply look like letters. See how they render "of" almost illegible?

#6: maybe those are spoonge cake.

Kim said...

I thought the one with flagella looked actually like a colon. But, then again, I'm a nurse and you know what THOSE cakes look like :-)

Michele said...

To be fair, I think the first one is learnin, not learnir. Still.

Pahz said...

My parents got a graduation cake for my son's high school graduation (Saturday, June 12). I can't wait to see it. I do know his name was spelled right, because my dad called from whichever bakery he bought the cake to make sure.

I will definitely take a photo if it turns out to be a wreck.

stephanie said...

You just made my horrible day a little bit better.

I vote tape worms or spaghetti noodles on a bed of ketchup and mustard.

I saw the exact same cow with bullet wound before I read your commentary.

If that last one is cookies, I would really hate to get the third one down. At least if I got the first I would feel in charge.

I literally saw that cow cake and this is what the dialogue in my head was:
"Ha ha, that cake is a wreck because there's a random red thing coming out of that cow. Wait, what IS that red thing supposed to be? Wait what does a cow have to do with graduation? *Head tilt* OOOooohhhh."
P.S. That STOP IT at the end made my day for some reason. Hilarious.

Tricia L said...

Actually, the only thing wrong with the black tombstone-like cake is the lack of a comma. The writing is a derogatory comment directed to the geeks in the computer department who wiped out three years of the company's records:

You
Dit,

Ignatius said...

ROTFLMAO repeatedly.

Cow with beaver tail and gunshot wound. SCUBA. Sumerians. Flagella.

Oh dear, what an unfortunate icing/bad spelling combo indeed!

1. As a microbiologist, I applaud the use of flagella. It really made me laugh out loud as I'm sitting here in my computer lab.... I just love you guys.

2. That last one made my eyes open so wide it hurt.

As humorous as it may be (and it's frickin' hilarious), the innocent little puppies had nothing to do with this! That is all.

drgns4vr said...

Those are not worms or
flagell(insert suffix of choice here), but snakes on cakes.
Which, of course, is a highly visible sign of higher learning--probably magna cum laude (to pick on another wreck).

ljdigeso said...

Ok, for the one that says You Dit It - what the hell is that supposed to be anyway?? And next, colon cupcakes anyone?? As for the cookie. . .I thought maybe they were going for a "no bullsh*t" celebration. . .LOLS!!!

DJ said...

I'm concerned about the school colors for the wormy diploma "cake." Their school cheer must be "We're No. 1! We're No. 2!"

Mindy said...

"Sumer is icumen in", translated as "summer has arrived". I'm sure that the wreckerator wrote in Middle English - the "Happy Sumer" must be a subtle and clever nod to liberal arts majors and grads everywhere. Who are working in grocery store bakeries as their degrees in British literature "ditn't" quite pan out as imagined.
Hilarious metaphor with the textspeak - STOP IT is the sprinkles on that!

Anonymous said...

Methinks that second cake should read "Happy Sumer Skool"

Wendy Lou said...

Are the graduation cookies cream filled? Because that would be awesome.

I'm surprised nobody seems to have recognized the strange animal in cake (er, cookie) #5 as the famous dogcow of classic MacOS fame. [see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/dogcow]. That's my vote, anyway. I'm not sure what the red string would be for, however.

But then, I've recently spent quite a lot of time with someone who is currently studying bacteria and parasitic organisms. I don't know why, but they got my mind on that track. Eeww.

RedVelvetALLTHEWAY said...

The "Class of 2010" cow cookie cake grieves me because it looks too much like a Spanish bull after being impaled by a matador. And a DEFORMED Spanish bull at that.

Being of the class of 2010, I don't think my fellow graduates would approve of such animal cruelty promotion. We are a caring class after all...

But at least it has chocolate chips...(?)

knitorpurl said...

I think the "flagella" might be pasta- one with marinara and with a butter sauce.

And the black think looks like a bloated black fox, but still has that unfortunate gunshot wound. Poor thing.

All I can say is wreckanators, you dit it!

#4 is a graduation cake for a class of highly educated snakes. They've learned to fly an airplane or something.

#5 depicts artificial insemination of a cow, so the graduates must be veterinary students.

#6 is not actually a graduation cake, but a wrap party cake for the cast and crew of "Grad '10," a pornographic film about a prom orgy.
