Making New Friends

Monday, June 20, 2011

In an effort to get to know you readers a bit better, today I thought we'd have one of you introduce yourselves. You know, foster a little more community and whatnot.

So, take it away, Debbie!


Hello! My name is Debbie, and this is my first attempt at a Cake Wrecks bio. So I'm nervous, but excited at the same time! Wheee!

So, I'm just going to start talking about what I like, and hope you like it!

Um. Let's see. I am... a relatively new Cake Wrecks reader. Um. I love...

...cats.

I love every kind of cat.

I love cats with fur, and cats without fur, and cats in hats, and cats that don't even look like cats...


[sniffle]

I'm sorry. I just...I just really love cats.

[wiping eyes]

And...and I just want to hug all of them because I love them but I can't 'cuz that's crazy I can't hug every cat. BUT I WANT TO. You know? I WANT TO HUG EVERY CAT.


[blowing nose]

Um. Wow. Sorry - I got a little emotional there. Heh.

I also like to...to...

[sob]

I'm sorry; I'm thinking about cats again.

I just...I just LOVE them, and I WANT them. I want them in a basket, and I want them in little bow ties, and I want them to be on a rainbow, and I want a house FULL OF CATS and we would all ROLL AROUND...


[more sobbing]

'Cuz they're all just so CUTE with their little whiskers...



...and their little ears...



...and their little delicious vital organs...


So, yeah. I guess you could say I'm a cat lover.

Um.

And I like to run.


Thanks to Minyassa, David G., Judy E., Briana T., Rachel R., Nancy S., Michelle F., Emily Z., & Stewart C., who are also inspired to run. Far, far away.


And if you haven't seen the live action version of today's post yet, here 'tis:

Gary said...

The cat necropsy cake is a bit gag-inducing, but at least it looks like a cat with a body and four legs, so I'm declaring it the best cat cake of the bunch.

Mama Bear said...

bah ha ha ha ha! I needed that laugh after the cops woke us up at 3 am because someone had broken into our cars.
I love cats with little bows - he he hehehe!!

kayk said...

The one with the ball of yarn actually looks very much like a real Persian kitten. See http://www.batcho.net/ for example.

The dissection one makes me cry. (If I'd owned my current kitty when I was in high school, I'd have failed honors biology, because I could have never completed the cat dissection.)

Fluffy Cow said...

I agree with Gary about the last cake. And the video? Yeah, wow.

Leah said...

Is that video for real? Oh my goodness!

Muria said...

Ok, you really need to do a Sunday Sweets with cat cakes now, because I'm having trouble remembering what a good cat cake looks like (though it might be like the baby cakes, now that I think about it).

The whisker cake looked good after the other ones. If you don't mind that your cat's eyes are really close together.

JHill said...

I can't believe that video post is really real, but either way it's perfection.

The cakes... not so much.

Laura Dotson-Thomson said...

Ummm... I have a feeling no one should look in her basement freezer, or we may find some necropsy cats that aren't cake... Oh... my...

MzHartz said...

That third cat kind of looks like Snarf.

Anonymous said...

Do you think if "Debbie" hugged all these cat cakes, she could tell for sure that they were all cats? I'm pretty sure she would not be the most discrimiating of people. On the other hand, I might even be able to love these cats in a basket, or on a rainbow for that matter, but I didn't notice any. Then again, at this hour I would trade my chance at love for coffee.

Evalis said...

that last cake...yeah wow.

And cake #5... i immediately dubbed that as the 'how many phallic looking bits can you find?' cake. I got 3 so far.

SaraCVT said...

Cake #6 reminds me of Mr. Tinkles, the evil white Persian cat in "Cats & Dogs: The Revenge Of Pussy Galore". Oh yes, I have kids. And no, they didn't get it.

Christineb said...

Ugh, those are not cute cats. Are they really cats?
That video is hilarious. She has other videos that are obviously not real, so I'm sure this one isn't either. I agree with Muria that you need to do a cat Sunday Sweets now!

Mary said...

That girl in the video will forever be deemed, "The crazy cat lady"

Caroline B said...

I love cats...but I can never eat a whole one.

Sharyn said...

So, you've made me cry two days in a row, for wildly disparate reasons. (Today I was giggling so hard my husband had to come check on me. I think he thought I needed the heimlich maneuver.)

Thanks for introducing us to Debbie. Now that I know her so well, I'm betting she'd LOVE prozac, too.

WV: restesse -- "It's important today to let you know how much I love cats. I'll save the restesse for another video."

Erin said...

Am I the only one who took forever to figure out which way was up on the orange cat? Upside down, it just allllllmost looks like it could be a really bad cat cake. It's slightly better right side, up..but only slightly.

Two Tabbies with Attitude said...

On behalf of cats everywhere, could you please see to it that in the future she has to wear a collar with a bell on it? We'd like to hear her coming...

Thank you,

Inigo and Badger

Barefeet In The Kitchen said...

Almost snorted my water when I saw Two Tabbies with Attitudes' comment. That video is hysterical. I doubt it's authenticity, but I still love it for it's absurdity.

ModestGirl said...

oh my god. See...that's how animal hoarders starts.

wow.

I'm scared.

In the first picture when she said

"I love..."

I thought she was going to say

WOW! Best post ever.

I was sobbing and really emotional because I just love Cake wrecks and I want to hug all of the cakes and you and John and Jen 1 and your cats and your other blog, but I can't cuz - well - you live in Florida and if I came down there, you would probably think I was stalking you and call the police and have me arrested and then ... well, I just can't but I love Cake Wrecks and even vital organs.

gtg and get more tissues. Writing comments always makes me so emotional.

Debbie said...

Is that video real? If it is, wow! I'm sure she'll find someone....who also loves cats I suppose.

sendingtheclowns said...

I don't condone vivisection, so "A&P" are on my *S*hit list*...so to speak.
On the other hand (the one without the black glove),
I think that the little kittenish thing, at only 40 cents an ounce, is actually a fine deal, considering the extortionist fees lot of the shelters charge for adoption.

=^u.u^=

Anonymous said...

OH
MY
GOODNESS

I'm speechless. Wow. Is she sane?

Stephanie said...

I didn't notice any cats in the video, so I'm betting Debbie's name is on some sort of watch list at the local adoption agency.

Bwahahahaha! Wow Jen yet again you made me cry from laughing so hard. That video was... o.O .. and HILARIOUS! I'm glad I had finished my coffee before watching that :-D

omg I was tempted to comment on some of the other cakes, but when I got to the cat autopsy I had to LOL. must be for med students--with a sick sense of humor! his tail looks fuzzy, the X's on the eyes, the tongue sticking out...I love cats too but that cake is going to make me snicker all day!

sendingtheclowns said...

HOLY "UM, Um, and I-just-UM", Catman! That VIDeo!

((I LOVE her!!!))
Can't rightly see her getting a lot of actual dates, per se...but still.
What a sweetheart.
Hope she gets some meds.

Kimberly Chapman said...

I recognize that the eviscerated one is entirely wrecktastic but I must say, I love it, and I love whomever baked it, because it is WRONG and AWESOME and HORRIBLE and WRONG and AWESOME. Muahahaha.

When I first saw that vid trending last week I was confused until she went to crazytown. Wonder how many dates she got and how many of 'em were named R.T.Tugger.

Maureen said...

That video CAN'T be for real. She is WAY too young to be a crazy cat lady. Nope. Must be made up.
Cakes were sickening. But you know, in a "good" Cake Wrecky kind of way. Thanks for the laughs!

MyCatsRule said...

Third one down is so Snarf. And, is actually not a bad rendition of Snarf. The others - well, uhm, yeah.

WV: badver- that chick's vid is a badvertisement for crazy cat ladies. Not all of us are THAT bad. :)

#4 reminds me of my poor Persian kitty who is no longer with us...Then again, lthough his name was Peaches, he wasn't quite so pink looking.

Hysterical! I had seen the video before, and it took me until about the third cake to realize what this was about. You had me rolling! Thanks for the laugh.

And WHILE we're at it...I don't actually see why, in the name of all things HolyCRAPish, that girl is getting so much credit.
I didn't hear her saying Thing One about her love of CAKE.

She must have had a cat die recently. That or she's REALLY good at playing a joke, or just crazy.

However, the cakes...... are terrifying and hilarious. ANOTHER great CW post!

Ok, so, that video is seriously hilarious! And I love cats too, but, um, apparently not as much as I thought I did after watching that. I think I need to find something else that I LOVE more....

LMAO @ video. hahahaha

WOW!!! I would really love to know how many dates this girl got!!!

Lucky66 said...

I feel really bad for the cat hoarder. Do you think she's just a brilliant comedian, or she really uploaded that to get a date?

Am I the only one who thinks the couples in eHarmony ads look related to each other? Like eHarmony gets a DNA sample and matches people with a first cousin (as long as they're not the same gender)?

wv: sobbrand - a video isn't complete if it's just a rant - you have to sob too and create a sobbrand.

Miss Thies said...

I'm guessing the last one is for veterinarian grads? And that video - regardless of whether it's authentic or not, I actually had a 6th grade student who would get like that whenever she talked about cats... so, yeah. It can happen.

racheld said...

Even the dissection is not the worst. The worst is CATS WITH EYELASHES.

Little painted, coy, on-a-what-not china CATS WITH EYELASHES.

Sorry---must be PTSD talking. Too many visits to Aunt Lo's house in my childhood. Makes even THESE cakes look OK.

I was sure that the first one was the backside of Mamma cat, birthing a very happy kitten.

Anonymous said...

I feel so sorry for that lady, I can't imagine what it would be like to be an internet joke. She may not be fully with it, so I think this post was done in poor taste.

Also, on the whole, these cats aren't that badly done in comparison to some of the true, laughter causing contraction cakes that are pictured.

Anonymous said...

OMG if that girl is for real she's NEVER getting a date with that video. restraining order, maybe.

Sarah Northrip said...

Is the tiger kitty actually a frighteningly reused Easter bunny pan?

betweencitylimits said...

So let's say for a second that you filmed a video where you go on and on about how much you love cats, to the point that you start crying about it. Why would you then post it too the internet??? No one is going to want to date you. Ever!

"Making-The-Most-Of-It" Tutorials:

1~Add a dot under the "tail" so that it looks like a question mark.
It will make sense.

2~ Shove a carrot in the mouth and save it for next Easter.

3~Let it sit for a few (more) weeks in a dry place. Halloween comes sooner or later; you'll have your mask ready.

4~Leave this little baby alone. He's mine.

5~Enter it in the Search For The New Tony the Tiger Contest. What with his au courant tiger-patterned chef hat, he'd be a sous-in.

6~Give this thing its own TV evangelist show. It looks like Tammy Faye with run-proof mascara. (But still ugly)

7~Such a hopeful little expression. ((SIGH)) It could be used for...uh... ah...

8~ NOT useful for anything. (Still don't wanna touch this, but why remove the "fur" in the first fondanty place? What--they had to "unwrap" it before they could open it?)

Gosh, somehow I missed the part about the delicious vital organs in "Debbie's" eHarmony bio. ;-)

It's a good thing the wreckerator used the plastic kitty head on the first cake. Otherwise it would be another pictionary cake for sure.

@Leah 9:38am No, that video isn't for real. If you look at the other videos by HartmannCara, you will see that she is quite the little actress. Here is the url for her video response to her eHarmony video:

Oops, I hadn't read all the comments yet when I posted mine, so I apologize for not naming all the rest of you folks who asked if the video was real. And I missed that John already told you that the video was a spoof.

I agree with Gary that the vivisection cake wins as the best cake of the bunch since you can actually tell that is a cat. Good call Gary.

Craig said...

#1 At first, I thought this was one of those cutesy, crafty things that people hang in their closets that serve absolutely no useful purpose. On realizing it's a CCC, I continued to think it should be hung in a closet.

#2 I'm sensing a violation of child labor laws here.

#3 I'm sensing a violation of the laws of nature here.

#4 I'd have to give this one a pass. Much as I would do if I were at that bakery.

#5 Rather than a contender for the new Tony the Tiger, this is more likely why a new Tony would be needed.

#6 Yikes!!! Those eyes look like they glow in the dark! Note to self: Never shop at the Louis Wain Bakery.

#7 Rumors of cat-dog hybrids are an Internet staple, but here is photographic proof.

#8 Meals don't taste nearly as good when they are re-swallowed, for some odd reason.

That video is a parody, but it isn't hard to imagine that it wouldn't be out of place on many dating sites. As for skepticism that 'Debbie' could make it in Hollyweird; really? The only risk 'Debbie' faces is being taken too seriously.

That last cake is a pretty accurate (if horrifying) rendition of the cats used in A&P. And to whoever said that A&P vivisection is on her sh!t list, they actually arrive dead. They also arrive shaved, but for the tails, head and paws, in a little bag waiting to reveal their secrets to the eager minds of future health care professionals everywhere!

"... to whoever said that A&P vivisection is on her sh!t list, they actually arrive dead."
~~~
Well, that's a cute trick, considering that the practice is, by definition, refering to the use of LIVE specimens:

" Vivisection (from Latin vivus "alive" + sectio "cutting") is defined as surgery conducted for experimental purposes on a living organism, typically animals with a central nervous system, to view living internal structure."

(Maybe your specimen-delivery person got lost.)

not dead = not vivisection.

I'm just going to file it under "Well-made cakes modeled after touchy subjects."

Peace!

I read each and every comment before mine because I HAD to know if that video was real. My mom has a cat. I needed to know it was safe from Debbie who wants to roll on it and hug its ears. . . So glad it's just acting, but it does sound a lot like some of the crazies you see on Animal planet with 67 cats in a single-wide trailer.

Aron said...

@sendintheclowns, you're right, of course. I should have worded that better. Allow me to try again: I have never heard of an A&P course that began with live cats. Ever. (Who knows? Perhaps such places exist, but I've never heard of it.) The cats usually are sent from the pound after having been put to sleep, as the charming euphamism goes. I'm not saying that practice makes me giggle with joy, just that it is what happens. The pound generates an income boost by selling their specimens to the local biology labs. Sorry, not trying to start something. It's just that the idea of vivisection in A&P labs would not only dramatically increase the general horror of that whole process, but would also be a bit beyond the actual point of those lab experiences. YMMV.
Sorry for the total derailment of hilarity. By the way, that cat (?) with the wandering whiskers is kind of freaking me out...

Kayla said...

holy crap! Hilarious! Do you think if Debbie saw all the cat cakes she'd want to eat them all? Or just take them home?

The vital organs comment had me hooting with laughter!!

In the '80s, my brother had a "Earl, the Dead Gray Cat" which was a flattened stuffed cat. It was always a hit at his parties. If you timed it right you could toss it up to the ceiling fan and it would fly off to land in the moose antlers (it was a real stuffed moose head his roommate's parents gave them o.O). Ahhh, good times.

I cannot stop laughing at that video.. plus it followed the cat autopsy cake. Eeeeeeeeeeee. I love cats too but I prefer not to have cat autopsy cake lol.

@Aron:
I used to work at soul-sucking animal shelter; we didn't call it "putting to sleep." It was "euthanasia"(Greek for "good death"). Ours went to a crematorium and generated no income that I'm aware of. It certainly makes sense for COLLEGE biology labs to make some worthwhile use of the sad losses. I'd totally blocked out the memory of my high school biology course in which we had baby pigs to disect and draw diagrams from. Looking back, it seems so pointless. One punk tossed a baby-pig nose around in the cafeteria and it was a big joke. (How many went on to be doctors of some kind?)
ANYway, yeah--pretty off-topic, hardly fun, and not cakey!
I'll shut up now...but WHAT "cat (?) with the wandering whiskers" are you talking about?

=^??^=

The dissected cat cake was gross but it did remind me of Nursing School A & P. Oh the smell of formaldehyde in the morning. Yummm. Nothing makes me think of sugar coma inducing cake more.

As for the "eharmony" video. Please tell me for the love of Jebus that it was a joke?!?!? If not, she should ask for her money back NOW. It will help with the future expenses she will have buying cat food, litter, and carpet freshener. Because she obviously is going to die alone somewhere and no one will find her corpse until the 1000's of cats she acquires start to starve to death (and smell)after stripping her body to the bone.

@sendintheclowns

Let me add my voice in support of Aron's. The "CVT" in my name refers to Certified Veterinary Technician, so I know whereof I speak. CVTs assist in surgery, even closing for the vet, act as anesthetists--we do everything short of actual cutting in surgery. So I've taken my share of A&P classes. They NEVER included vivisection. EVER. The very idea was--and is--obscene. We take oaths, just like human doctors, and we take them just as seriously. That would seriously violate our oaths. Vivisection is on MY sh!t list, too. Know anybody who does it?

"In sendintheclowns' defense, I, too, thought the tiger cake... looked like a tiger-striped phallus with eyes."

~~~
Whoa, now--I didn't start that one! Look back and you'll see that I merely RESPONDED to an "Anonymous" so & so who BROUGHT UP the whole *phallus* thing (only he/she used the actual OTHER "p" word) at 11:21! I just forgot to put the quoted part in "quotes".
All *I* said was that he/she WAS the only one with a dirty mind...
(I can't help it if that sounded a tad facetious.)

@SaraCVT

Re: "Know anybody who does it?"

No, I don't. But I know about something even (and unspeakably)worse that I am in the process of doing something about right now. Seeing as this isn't the place, feel free to email (address on my profile)me if you care to know. I need all the help I can get.

Sendingtheclowns,

This whole topic is a bit of a downer but as the biggest cat lover on this board, I need to hear about whatever it is you're fighting for. Send me an email at john(at)cakewrecks.com when you get a chance.

Angie said...

Wth is that big orange thing?? Is that a Chernobyl kitty?

HannaSolo said...

I was so relieved to find out the video is fake, because now I don't have to feel so bad about laughing at that poor girl. She's good.
And the post is great, too, as always!

Sew Simple said...

LOL LOL LOL!!! I LOVE that you referenced that lame video! My grandkids come to my house and ask "Can I go on CakeWrecks?" Wait till they see the cat posts!

Thanks for your site!

Ha!
I'm delighted to meet another Louis Wain fan!

P.S. As I'm sure you know, Louis Wain died in an insane asylum.

barn said...

The video...WOW. Now I must geek...Toxoplasma gondii is a parasite that can only reproduce in the digestive tracts of cats. If it infects a rat, it slowly alters the rat's brain, making the rat attracted to cats. So the rat gets eaten, and the parasite gets to reproduce.
I think it may also infect people named Debbie. Just sayin'

Wendy said...

OMG the cat with the insides displayed made me jump !!!!!

Tricia L said...

OMG, that is like, so sweet, you know!!! I just totally understand where she is coming from!!!!

I guess Debbie doesn't know how to use the "erase" button on her camcorder. I'm sure there are guys just lined up to meet her after that.

Annie said...

Wow...that was a whole lot of crazy cat mess.

Destinie said...

No wonder the girl can't find a date...

I hope, for her sake, that the video is just a joke!

Aliza said...

I saw that video as it made the rounds on Facebook, so as soon as you started your captions, I started giggling. I'm so glad you took full advantage of it!

As for the video (and all these cat cakes*)... show of hands: how many dog-lovers here had a secret suspicion that cat people are certifiable?

* yes, I know there's horrendous dog cakes. But those are for small yappy things (ie pseudo-cats). Lovers of big dogs obviously have taste ;)

PS Love the vivisection cat! It's actually well done, so really not a wreck! And the cartoon one is almost good but seems to be overly endowed down low, and with pupils!

Anonymous said...

Holy crap, what is she on?!

Diane said...

Wait...I'm still not certain...does she like cats? lol

For the record, my 9yr old made me watch that video several times because he couldn't stop laughing. Even he said "Why on earth would she post that?!"

Aliza:

*Waving hand up.* (I don't include all the people who like cats, but this particular Debbie certainly qualifies.)

(My take on it is, why do so many people go as crazy as they do with cats? It's just another animal... )

medrecgal said...

Wow...memories of the one thing I hated about A & P (which was otherwise awesome). Not cool to be presented with a cat like that when you have three live ones you love at home! The video was just over the top weird. I love my kitties, but wow! I hope I could do my furry friends better justice than any of the wrecks in this post.

Puppygirl said...

I don't care if the video is fake. I like pretending it's not. Because I believe that there are cat people out there-- okay, people in general, who are just that crazy. It makes me smile. And lock my doors at the same time.

I was seriously scarred by high school English. I was expecting after the rainbow comment that she was going to declare that she wanted to take the kitties and wrap them in a pink fluffy cloud and push them around.

lisadh said...

I started sneezing as soon as I started reading this. No chance of me turning into a "Debbie". Hives, indeed.

Oh, Haiku Joy - that was a gut buster!

leash10s said...

Ok, there were waay too many comments to read through, but I immediately knew what this post was about, mainly because of Paul Klusman's (of engineer's guide to cats) video response to that video!!

Dana - Curvy With A Side Of Confidence said...

Is this video for real?! I laughed my ass off. Seriously, who cries over cats!

JenVMD said...

I saw this and knew immediately where we were going... Priceless...

Karen C said...

I've always wondered what it would look like if a pig gave birth to a cat, and thanks to cake #1, I now know. One more check off my bucket list!

Anonymous said...

I'd like to know where the disected cat cake came from. Looks like something my Titusville high school anatomy and physiology teacher would have endorsed.

gowreckedcakes! said...

That video is the most funny I've EVER heard!!!! :D

Matt blezow said...

I'm thinking about cats again...

Andreanna Glamasaurus said...

I kinda love the disected cat one.

Anonymous said...

I laughed so loud when she started talking about how hugging ALL the cats would be crazy. Yes, because that's the crazy part,

beyond paisley said...

That can't be real.

Imagine the psychotic event if Debbie received the vivisection cake.

Bessie Mac said...

Great tie-in...when I saw this link in a "Life with Dogs" article comment, I was a little confused. Then the pictures made everything clear!
