Wrecks Ahead? Here's Your "Sign"

Monday, September 27, 2010



Thanks to Aurora C., who can "decorate" any "caxe" you throw at her.

So watch yourself.

Debbi said...

Well, that sign answers a LOT of questions!

"If there are, we'll all be dead!"

Love The Princess Bride!

I also love that even the boss at this store understands that the cakes will be "decorated"; in the loosest sense of the word!

"Cake' is the plural of cake.
As in:
"Can you decorate a cake?"
Why yes, I have decorated many
caxe!"

Donna said...

Wonders if "Caxe" "Decorator" has another meaning....

Sariah said...

Andrea (Anonymous) beat me. All I could think of was "If there are, we all be dead!!"

You know how I love me some Princess Bride. ;)

Srsly, wow. I think we should donate $ to supply every bakery in America with a copy of Strunk and White's "The Elements of Style" and Lynne Truss' "Eats, Shoots and Leaves."

That "sign" would have looked much better if it had been written in "icing."

WV: spereves

"I blieve that I am qualfeid for the caxe decorator position because I've been taking Wilton classes on my spereves."

OMG - Think I just died laughing...and somewhere, a Master Baker just lost a part of his soul...

Stephanie McGee said...

Caxe: to decorate a cake with a hatchet or axe so as to do the most amount of work in the least amount of time.

Tina said...

Haha, awesome.

Natalie said...

I hope I see some of those cardboard stars at the 4th of July...

Jennifer said...

Hmmm... you know how some people pronounce "ask" as "axe"? Maybe they're really looking for a cask decorator.

Anonymous said...

In fairness, maybe they're hiring because they realize they don't know how to spell or punctuate properly.

Caxe is clearly a plural form of cake. This sign was posted by the type of person that regularly uses "thanx" in place of "thanks". You know, because of all the effort it takes to add an "s" to the end of a word.

John said...

Hmmmmm. It seems they forgot the quotation marks around "HELP" as well... :P

Aviatrix said...

The doomdèdness of this bakery is dependent on whether the person who made the sign is conducting the interview, or is the reason they're hiring someone else.

Maybe the one of the interview questions is "what's wrong with the sign?"

Aurora said...

I'm mostly just excited to see the submitter's name. Those of you with ordinary names have no idea.

wv: breade...Sure they make caxe, but do they make breade too?

No, no, no. You don't understand. This is Franck Eggelhoffer's wedding planning and production facility. You remember him, played by Martin Short in Father of the Bride? "Ooooo...you will just love our caxe!"

Maybe they aren't quotation marks. Maybe they are those little lines cartoonists use to show movement. The words are vibrating with such enthusiasm, to lure in the next Top Caxe Decorator! Really, who has time to decorate their own external hard drives? http://www.cavalrystorage.com/CAXE.htm

Simone said...

@Aurora...well now I know there are TWO Auroras other than my daughter! Hurrah!

Well two human Auroras that is...

Sorry, in keeping with the post I should say two "human" "Auroraxes"

Heather said...

It's pretty obviously a scripty K since the lines wouldn't match up for an X.

Anonymous said...

Aw, c'mon Heather, don't be such a "spoil" "sport".

I'm sure we can guess just how fancy these "caxe" will be when finally "decorated".

Croxxing my fingers that the sign was made by the "decorator" leaving, hence the need.

As to PB references... I love PB, BUT Dead doesn't rhyme with Sign... why rhyme with the first line, not the last?

Anyone want a peanut...??

~~Di

wv - enticso (using the soft c version) -- why do they continue to attempt to enticso much enthusiasm for "decorators"?

Ilze said...

I read the sign & thought "uh-oh, big trouble ahead"

Jamie said...

so are they not real cakes (we just call them "cakes") or not real decorators (we'll just call them "decorators!")?

Jan said...

Hey Dexter - if you're ever ready to hang up your spurs, have I got a job for you...

Reo said...

"Caxe!!!"
"I do not think that word means what you think it means."
Just to add another Princess Bride ref- er, "reference" here.

Arlene said...

This does explain why they get so many horrible spellers.. lol

Anonymous said...

Never a good sign

Nami said...

Debbi- my thoughts exactly!

The quotation marks also make it more interesting.... hopefully they can find a suitable "caxe decorator" to fill the position so we can enjoy this blog for future generations and wrecks to come.

Daisy said...

"Caxe" reminds me of my former boss who wondered why he couldn't locate the word "fluctuate" in the dictionary--as it turned out, he'd been spelling it "fluxuate" the whole time before I set him straight. He was dense in a lot of other ways also, which is why few were surprised when he was given the ax during a "reorganization."

Would a CAXE decorator be a person whom specializes in including a small AXE inside the cake for cakes being sent to people in prison ;) makes sense to me lol
