...uh...


WHAT?!?

Can I quote you on that?


Thanks to Becky's daughter Amy C. for the, uh, recommendation. I'm sure we'll all keep it in mind the next time we're "wookin' pa nub."

At least the roses are pretty thought. :-)

"Doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo dooo, doo doo doo doo..." *Twilight Show Theme Music, in case it wasn't clear*

I am having a very clear case of the heebie-jeebies...
for some unknown reason, I was singing Buckwheat's version of "Three Times a Lady" THIS VERY MORNING IN THE CAR.
Was I having some sort of CakeWrecks ESP moment?
Are we connected on an astral plane (plain?)(hurr) somewhere?
Is this freaking you out as much as it is freaking me out?
(Probably a "no.")

Kind of cool, though.

And isn't that how we all want to be remembered, really?

WV perch- And from her perch on high, Jen cast out all the wreckrators, and we all lived, happily, though not as laughily ever after.

jo said...

What a beautiful cake! Nice roses, gorgeous penmanship. But WTH does that mean??? "A Wise Lay"??

Is she a smart prostitute?

Is she an entrepreneurial chicken farmer?

Is she a potato chip CEO announcing a business merger between Wise and Lay's????

seriously, what's the story here?

Craig said...

What could that possibly have been intended to say? Or was that intended? 'A Very Wise Lady', perhaps? Please tell me it was that.

Boss: "D! You forgot the d! As in defamation of character! Dunce! Dipstick! Dimwit! And anything else I can think of that starts with 'd'!"

And so, Dylan's 'Lay Lady Lay' is set as today's soundtrack. Jolly.

"wookin' pa nub."

You don't sound much better yet, Jen. More drugs!!

Suzanne :-) said...

I'd love the backstory on that one.

I have the most fantastic WV today: saweet.
CakeWrecks sure is saweet!

Usagi said...

OMG, Eddie Murphy Buckwheat ref FTW!

Word Verification totally fits this post as weel. Abili. An alibi for a very drunk person.

Great, now I'm gonna have "Wookin Pa Nub" going through my head all day...

mary e said...

Awesome post! got any velvet love? lol!

Zoanna said...

Wookin' pa nub! {{snort}} Maybe the cake decorator was trying to slip in subliminal advice to Becky to be a monogamous gal?

What the... brain can"t comprehend this... must think smart thoughts O_o

Lori said...

Mwa-ha-ha!! Are you even OLD enough to have seen Eddie Murphy do Buckwheat?! I LOVE it!

Anonymous said...

At least it was in quotes so we wouldn't take it literally, right?

wv - aphork. Pleas pass me aphork so I can eat some cake.

cq75 said...

Buckwheat! Yay! Gotta love the classic SNL sketches. Now if you could only find references to the Landshark (Candygram! NOM NOM NOM!), The King Tut Song (Steve Martin), and "The Cowbell Fever" (Christopher Walken!)...

Gary said...

"A Very Wise Lay" IS a compliment, but I still wouldn't write it on a cake.

Anonymous said...

Is that another way of saying she has, uh, a lot of experience?

I loved Eddie Murphy as Buckwheat....and Gumby...and Mr. Robinson...OH! And James Brown in the Hot Tub song! Thanks for the great reference!

What a beautiful tribute to a so often overlooked gift.

My mother used to say, "if you can't lay anything wise, don't lay anything at all."

Donna said...

Personally, I love the irony that this was submitted by her daughter...Way too funny!

Miss Mindy said...

A compliment, maybe, except that it's in quotes, and if Jen and John have taught us anything, it's what quotes indicate.

And I'm with Lori @11:08 - so impressed at the wisdom of one so young. Wait, so would you then be a "wise lay"? I'd better go get that cup of tea now...

Jen said...

HAHAHA! "Wookin pa nub" is awesome! Very appropriate for this cake too.

J. said...

Hey maybe Becky's last name is "Lay." Or maybe Becky's really smart about who she sleeps with.

Also, I now have "Buckwheat's Greatest Hits" stuck in my brain.

Daisy said...

Such a shame, the penmanship is otherwise exquisite (relative to mine)!

Rebecca Knight said...

And the best part is, with the floral design, and "wisdom" call out, you just know this cake is for someone's grandma.

Loo-E Loo-I said...

ROTFLMBO! "A wise lay"? Beats being an "ignorant slut"! Oops, showing my age there, ain't I! ;-D

Yeah, poor Buckwheat. Too bad he got shot, tho'.

wv: ingel: I get a ingel up my leg when I hear Buckwheat sing.

Anonymous said...

Ok, I started laughing before I even got to the cake... Now after reading the comments, I am singing Buckwheat tunes... Please tell me some Mr. Robinson's Neighborhood relics will find their way to this post one day--Kill my landlord, Kill my landlord..

Siouxzr said...

I must have been the only one who looked at this and saw "wide lay." I'm not sure what that means but it sounds like an insult.
Better to be wise than wide!

WV portie -- what the call a celebration in NJ. What kind of portie is that cake for?

No Cake Fo' You! said...

bwahahaha and such a purty cake.... I would be proud of I got a cake like that...*winking*

WV: Sines, We have all the Sines that these Wreckerators really don't have a clue...

Bree said...

Man that's a shame because it's gorgeous cake.

Becky must know Amber from your other post. ;)

Rachel said...

Well you know the old saying... if the cake is a rocking, don't come a knocking.

nelsonturf said...

Becky, I can relate...I usually wait until he's done some choreplay. *wink*

Vicki said...

Heh, I love that skit. Now I'm going to have "wookin pa nub" stuck in my head all day.

Anonymous said...

I think it is more sad when a cake is so lovely and only the inscription screws it up... such nice cake writing.

Delilah said...

At least it was written in a very pretty handwriting! That's got to make up for the... error. It was an error, right?

Anonymous said...

I guess they figured no one would notice if they left out one small little letter since they ran out of room. It's a shame such nice penmanship was wasted on them...

Suphred :) said...

The only thing that would make this better is if the baker is named Jane! (you ignorant slut!) LOL wookin' pa nub.......

wv: cardsi - hmmm, I got nuthin. Thought I did. sorry.

BADKarma! said...

...And it is such a nice cake, right up to that point...

Jiu Jitsu Los Angeles said...

At least it's feminine and dainty, even though the underlying message is a little... abrupt. Well, that's one way to remember someone on their birthday.

pikkewyntjie said...

You people are completely missing the hidden insider trading message. Wise and Lays are both potato chip companies. The companies are merging. I'm reporting Becky to the SEC. Right after I call my broker.

Anonymous said...

Has anyone considered the fact that maybe Becky was a prostitute who used her wisdom and cunning to narrowly escape death? That would make her a very wise lay indeed.

So funny when letters that pretty go that awry! - Sally

Managed Hosting said...

Where is the sorry cake that says, "Better to be wise then easy"? If I were the person on the receiving end of this cake, I would really question who I hang out with. How mortifying!

Amy said...

Don't feel bad for Becky (she got a "Happy Birthday"), feel bad for Avery! The "v" isn't capitalized, and since my son's friend is Avery, that's how it reads for me! Better to be called Wise Lay than Stupid Lay, right?

WV quano (adj)- batsh*t. Charlie and Qaddafi are both quano crazy.

Allie said...

ok...so I had to google buckwheat reference (being an aussie) but was sooooo worth it.

A wise lay...not thats something to aspire to..

WV: rerbock: my new running shoes

Mizkit said...

Love the Buckwheat reference...maybe Becky is one of the Dupremes?


WV:buroph I ate so much cake, I had to buroph!

La Bella Torta said...

OMG my husband and I were HYSTERICAL!!! The cake itself is funny, who knew forgetting a d could make such a huge and funny mistake, but honestly the buckwheat eddie murphyisms...that was shere brilliance and MADE the post!! Its not nice to make an 8 month pregnant woman laugh that hard!!!

Kelly said...

LOVE the Buckwheat references!

Cutelilsnot said...

Just axed my hubby if he was wookin pa nub...he ran in the bathroom and locked the door.

wv redux - perch: I set on my back perch lookin at farflies.

Lynette said...

Hate to be a killjoy, but I looked at the cake, saw 'A very nice day' and wondered where the wreck was.

Then I read the comments. I think the style of writing is very old and I'm extremely sad to say that I can read it because that makes me very old too.

Heidi D said...

O Tay!

When I think of the type of lei I'd like to be remembered as it wouldn't be "wise" but (beeeeeeeeeeeeeeep) or (beeep-beeep-beeeeeep).

Arlene said...

Lmao!! The entire cake was gorgeous until you got the wise lay comment. Man I really hope they did not pay for that although if they did they could quickly cut a piece out of the lay part lol.

Kati said...

Unce, Tice, Fee Tine's a...
The title was so funny I almost didn't even scroll down to see the cake. Wookin' pa nub! Buh-weet FTW!

L.B. said...

Maybe Becky is very experienced in this area, and seeking her out is a wise choice. Meanwhile, what was that third 'Buckwheat' song? The one called '???????'



WV: healedo: no, it doesn't

~flying gurl~ said...

hmmm must be a good nay a great teacher...lmao...

"Daba dobba. Daba duh dobba dob. Betty Dabis bies..."

Having a rough afternoon and this totally just brightened my day. Thrice the thanks!

kristina said...

I never comment because, well, you usually say it all, but I have to tell you I just about peed myself (TMI?) on this one - this was one Eddie Murphy bit I've howled at every time I see it, and every time I hear one of the real songs I can't help but hear Buhwhea's version in my head...

Jennifer said...

Thank you for the "Buh-weet Sings" references! Una panoona bankaaa-aah!
